The Ageing Well Village is the first of its kind in the UK - a £40million development by Northumberland Estates designed to reduce the need for hospital admissions and provide longer-term care within a residential community.
To ensure that the project was delivered to the highest standards it required input from a range of partners in terms of design and specialist understanding of health and care facilities. Collaboration was critical throughout the scheme and we partnered with NHS and care specialists to ensure that the development offers the full range of facilities that help occupants live healthier, more independent lives supported by experienced health and social care professionals.
In addition to being a flagship scheme for those living in older age, environmental impact was assessed and an embodied carbon/ lifecycle costing of the entire scheme will take place under Northumberland Estates’ commitment to net zero.
The final result is 201,000 sq.ft ‘Ageing Well Village’ which incorporates high-quality modern housing, care facilities, new technologies, social engagement and well-being services within a community environment.
