brp architects are pleased to announce that works have now commenced on site for the new £15 million Health and Well-Being Campus as part of the wider University Park development in Worcester. Working alongside Sanctuary Housing Group and Stepnell, brp architects are currently finalising the construction drawing package for the scheme, which will be providing a brand new 60-unit Extra Care Facility and a 60-bedroom Care Home linked by a central Community Hub, supported further by 32no. Close Care apartments and 8no. Close Care bungalows.

With the semi-rural setting on the periphery of Worcester the design of the scheme is heavily landscape-led, ensuring that it has been sensitively designed so as to integrate well with the surrounding residential context and the listed Grove Farm development immediately adjacent. The scheme also responds positively to the challenging sloping terrain of the greenfield site, which is reinforced by the 30m wide landscape buffer zone that runs along the eastern boundary, providing a public walkway and a soft, green edge to the development.

Due to the conditions associated to the funding provided by Central Government the scheme is working to an accelerated programme, with completion scheduled for March 2015. Further details and updates will be provided as construction progresses throughout the year.
