Galliford Try’s regeneration business, Galliford Try Partnerships, announces that it will once again work alongside long-term client, The ExtraCare Charitable Trust, to build their latest retirement village at Wixams in Bedford.
The new £44 million village will feature 230 mixed-tenure apartments, alongside a range of communal facilities, including a village hall, library and IT suite, bar and bistro, fitness gym, hairdressing and beauty salon and shop.
The development marks the tenth occasion that Partnerships has worked with the charity on a retirement village, with new projects at Longbridge, Stoke Gifford and High Wycombe currently on site. Only last month the Bournville Gardens retirement village was named Older Persons’ Development of the Year at Inside Housing’s Top 60 development awards.
Stephen Teagle, Chief Executive of Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “Our long-term collaborative approach with our clients is a feature of our business, and nowhere is this better demonstrated than in our excellent relationship with ExtraCare . Homes for older persons are a key part of the housing mix and our team is looking forward to producing a high-quality retirement village to meet local needs.”
