Triton lands pair of £8m Liberty schemes
The contractor has started work on a 72-bed care home in Crewe for Liberty Care Developments, and has secured a further project from the developer.
Triton Construction will soon start on site to deliver a second 72-bed care home on a two-acre site in Whitchurch, while work has already begun on the 1.35-acre site in Crewe.
To be delivered on Gresty Road, Shavington, the project was approved in 2021. The architect is Warrington-based C Squared.
Liberty Care Developments is a part of Chester-based Liberty Properties, a developer with a 35-year track record in offices, industrial and retail.
The care division works across the full development cycle, from site finding through to planning and development, and is delivering these projects for Anavo Group, a specialist provider of dementia care.
The two projects will provide purpose-built three-storey care homes providing end of life health care for residents, including those with special needs.
Triton is providing full design and build expertise for both projects which include full fit out, and associated external works for parking, landscaping, service installations and highways alterations. The building firm has previously completed an 80-bed Premier Inn in Porthmadog for Liberty.
Paul Clarkson, managing director at Triton Construction, said: “These developments require very specific installations to support people that need specialist nursing care and provide an opportunity for those most vulnerable to maintain their personal choices and independence.
“This extends to the provisions outside, as well as inside, of the estates and our delivery extends to disability provisions and aesthetic landscaping with privacy.
“We have built a strong and trusting partnership with Liberty Properties to become its preferred construction partner and are discussing further development projects as it pursues expansion in the care sector.”
Andrew Baddeley, managing director at Liberty Care Developments, said the firm is “actively seeking further care home sites to meet the significant need for purpose built, modern and safe care facilities in the North West”.
Triton, which works from bases in Birchwood and Liversedge, West Yorkshire, is currently in site delivering two new facilities for supported living development company HB Villages valued at £5m+.
Previous contracts include the award winning £2.7m Asquith Hall dementia care home in Yorkshire and Martha’s Barn, a £4.4m new build therapy centre in Cheshire’s Delamere Forest.
