Brinsworth House Care Home

Project Overview

Brinsworth House is a 40 bedroom residential and nursing care home, run by the Royal Variety charity, which provides round-the-clock care to elderly members of the entertainment profession. The original 1850 building is Grade II listed, whilst an additional wing was added in the 1970s. The home is proud of its theatrical lineage and the interior is decorated throughout to keep this ethos alive.

The project saw the internal refurbishment and remodelling of the home’s residential quarters and communal spaces to modernise and improve facilities for residents. The work, which was completed over 2 phases, upgraded the accommodation and added en-suite bathrooms to many of the bedrooms. Public, staff and office areas were also refurbished and modernised along with back of house space. As the home is part funded through charitable donations the importance of achieving best value was essential, and we worked closely with the Client and design team to achieve this.

The care home remained occupied throughout the construction works, which were carefully planned to minimise disruption to residents. Our CDM team also played a crucial role providing guidance and advice to minimise health and safety risks.
