Surrey County Council, under a PFI contract, awarded Anchor Trust with the conversion of 15 existing Care Homes and the rebuilding of 9 new Homes.
The Beeches Care Home replaces an old EMI “racetrack type” unit with a 48-bedroom EMI unit with an attached Day Centre for 10 people.
The scheme provides 4 x 12-bedded clusters, with communal facilities around a central courtyard providing a secure environment for the residents.
Each resident has a room in excess of the new care standards and has an en-suite bathroom with a shower facility.
The Beeches site was very heavily wooded and the design reflected the need to retain the trees on the site
