Outstanding new care home features Neaco balustrade and balconies
Neaco’s structural glass balustrades and Juliet balconies are adding a touch of contemporary style in keeping with the outstanding modern design of a new £6m care home in Brighouse.
Providing 61-bed luxury accommodation, Bridge House was designed by SS+A Architects and constructed by Marshall (Building Contractors) Ltd of Elland on behalf of the Fisher Care Group. The collaboration has delivered an exceptional scheme which maximises the elevated views from the challenging but spectacular ridge-top site. Its design incorporates innovative amenity spaces for residents to enjoy, including an impressive roof garden, indoor garden room and music room.
Neaco’s structural glass balustrades system has been specified for external terraces and the roof garden, enabling residents to take in the panoramic outlook from the top of the building. The glass has been installed at an extended height with an offset handrail in a powder coated finish which is smooth and comfortable to the touch. Five of the bedrooms feature Neaco’s glass-panelled Juliet balconies, providing a stylish modern finish which offers an aesthetically attractive alternative to the cage-like appearance of meshed and railed balconies.
Bridge House incorporates a range of eco-friendly features, including ground source heating and solar panels, as well as under floor-heating throughout and a high specification offering a host of modern fittings and appliances. Other facilities include a hair salon staffed by carers, a games room and a cafe which local people are also invited to use.
Founded in 1986, the Fisher Care Group specialises in high-quality residential and nursing placements for respite and permanent care. In addition to Bridge House, the company currently accommodates over 100 residents in four homes across North Yorkshire. Each home is designed to provide a tranquil, caring environment with professionally-trained staff focused on the individual requirements of residents and their families.
Neaco also designs and manufactures a range of other architectural products, including walk-on balconies, stainless steel balustrade, industrial balustrade, adaptive bathing facilities and aluminium open grille systems for decking, screening, cladding and solar shading. All products come with a lifetime guarantee.
