The Masonic Village Trust Woburn Care Facility provides quality lifestyle with modern and user-friendly services for the optimal care of their residents. Maycroft was engaged to provide ECI and Construction services on a project to upgrade the care facilities and provide an internal fit-out. It involved the demolition of part of the current care facility to make way for a contemporary space consisting of 1–2-bedroom units. Demolition and construction commenced in early 2021.
The new care facility has the best features to provide quality healthcare to all residents. Natural light was integrated into the lighting control system. A user-friendly lighting control system allows both staff and residents to customise the lighting settings according to their preferences. The existing hot water plant room was decommissioned, and new gas-heated boilers were installed to provide all the hot water facilities, with the design to provide heat during winter or at the demand of the residents and staff.
To enhance communication and response times, a installed a modern nurse call point system was installed. This system triggers alarms on staff monitors and handheld devices, enabling them to provide prompt assistance whenever it was needed. Additionally, we added two sleek and efficient lifts, making it easier for beds and passengers to move around the facility.
Security systems were upgraded to ensure the wellbeing of the residents and staff.
New concrete slabs were programmed to be placed in five pours. Following the pours of the main slabs, the bathroom sloped floors were prepared, poured, and finished to a high standard. The structure of the building utilised structural steel to ensure longevity and safety in frightful situations such as earthquakes, to ensure residents' safety.
We are honored to have played a part in creating a space that prioritises comfort, well-being, and a sense of community. Knowing that our efforts have positively impacted the lives of the residents brings us immense pride.
