In 2010, we obtained planning approval for a 20 bedroom extension to New Court in Trentham, providing intermediate care facilities. New Court is designed as a cutting edge facility and includes tracking hoists in extra-large rooms with double doors for easier transition between spaces. Residents have access to a shop and coffee bar area in addition to an enclosed accessible courtyard providing a serene space for all residents.
The design is clad in render, timber boarding, brickwork and glass with a mix of flat and mono-pitch roofs to articulate the different functions. The accommodation is arranged around a C-shaped plan which links with the existing facilities to form the enclosed external garden courtyard.
