Dell House, Beccles, Norfolk
Dell House is a new build, 60-bed care home development for which Clancy Consulting provided Civil and Structural Engineering services.
The purpose built development has a cafe, cinema, activities rooms, wellness room, hair and beauty salon, family room and large garden which includes walkways and raised beds in a gardening area. There are also three lodges within the grounds, ideal for couples who may not want residential care but appreciate the nearby services of Dell House.
The new care home specialises in caring for people with Alzheimer’s, hearing impairment and deafness, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and visual impairment.
Dell House has fantastic views over the Waveney Valley on one side and over the playing fields of Sir John Leman High School on the other. The building was designed to emphasise the stunning location with large, low down windows.
During the 70-week construction phase, we took 19 students from Norwich City College who were studying in their first year of the Civil Engineering Level 3 course to the site. The students gained valuable knowledge in health and safety, sustainability and project management.
