Sandy Cross Nursing Home

New build and modernisation of existing facilities


The Sandy Cross Nursing Home was funded by the Newspaper Press Fund to provide Nursing facilities to support Newspaper Press employees.

An existing site sees new build and modernisation to existing facilities, and features 2 and 3 storey nursing home blocks. This involves 20 bedrooms with en-suite and communal facilities, 24 hour nursing staff and resultant separate staff accommodation.

'The main building featured a circular central hub feature constructed from load bearing masonry.'

Design solutions were modelled to support the sloping site. The main building featured a circular central hub feature constructed from load bearing masonry. It included a reinforced concrete basement structure.
