Care sector work continues for Arc-Tech
Operating alongside the main contractor, Arc-Tech will deliver a full suite of mechanical and electrical services for the luxury care home which is being delivered on behalf of Morrison Community Care Group.
The new care home will boast 69 luxury suites, four dining rooms, a visitor’s café, hair and beauty salon and a private cinema. A roof terrace, private gardens and a putting green will also allow be available to residents.
Paul Sokhi, managing director of Morrison Community Care, said: “Our 29 years’ experience in the industry has shown us that people want to have fun in their old age and we want to encourage this through design and environment. By encouraging people out of the often-lonely surroundings of their own homes into an environment where there is a vibrant community we hope to give residents and their families an extra lease of life.
“We understand that people age at different rates and at different times, and as such we have a responsive, highly trained care and clinical team on site that will allow Kingsacre to be a home for life in every sense of the word. We are delighted to have Arc-Tech back on board for our one stop M&E solution after they completed our 45 luxury suite development in Milngavie late last year.”
Arc-Tech will be responsible for the installation of thermal insulation, heating and distribution, plumbing services and sprinkler systems, as well as all incoming electrical supplies, internal and external lighting systems, fire alarm systems and ICT passive cabling amongst others.
John Gallacher, managing director of Arc-Tech, added: “Construction in the care sector is ever-increasing in demand as Scotland’s economy continues to see the effects of an ageing population. Certainly at Arc-Tech, we see this as a key growth sector for our business and we will continue to work with valued clients such as Morrison Community Care to provide quality, M&E solutions.”
Arc-Tech aims to be on site in August moving toward completion in spring-2019.
