Planning approval received for a 68 bed Integrated Community Healthcare Facility in Tunbridge Wells for existing client! Particular challenges for this site included the location outside the LBD, within Metropolitan Green Belt and AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). Instrumental in the building location was complimenting the functions of an existing care home on the site, but great care was required for protection of existing fauna and flora, as well as respecting the proximity of neighbouring residential properties. We now look forward to developing the design into reality!

CAP and Care South are proud and delighted to have been shortlisted as one of three finalists in the ‘Best Care Village’ category for the National Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2018, the award was presented at a ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel last week.

CAP teams up with HONEYPOT!

Posted: 23 Mar 2018

CAP is thrilled to team up with The Honeypot Children’s Charity for 2018 and we will be hosting numerous events and challenges throughout the year to raise funds and awareness of Honeypot.

CAP undertook a shortlisting exercise to help us determine our ideal partner – a key element of which was a charity that works with children in the local area.  After some research, Honeypot stood out for the team!

CAP is keen to get cracking with our fundraising, with ideas such as a bake-off,  a cycling challenge from London to Paris and the Windsor Half Marathon. Honeypot is a keen advocate of sports events so this will tie in nicely to those currently being considered by the team. Stay tuned for what CAP team will be doing to support them.

Since 1996 the Honeypot Children’s Charity has been working to enhance the lives of young carers and vulnerable children aged between 5 – 12 years old. They are the only charity in the UK to provide respite breaks and on-going outreach support throughout a child’s formative years.

It provides young carers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provides a safe, nurturing environment where children at risk can develop their full potential.

How to help Honeypot & CAP?

Totnes Care Home

Posted: 02 Feb 2018

A planning application was submitted recently for a new 68-bed end of life and dementia care home located on the northern bank of River Dart, Totnes.
As it sits in the direct neighbourhood of a newly constructed 60 flats Extra Care Development it functionally completes the site and provides a final place for natural transition.

The site’s conditions as well as the its surrounding vastly influenced the shape of the building, creating a terrace building, with the footprint of each floor decreasing upwards in favour of increasing terrace space. The result is a yacht-like central core, where all the day-to-day life of the building would happen.
