Totnes Care Home

Posted: 23 May 2018

Following an extended planning process with South Hams District Council we are pleased to announce that this scheme for a 68-bed end of life and dementia care home in Totnes has been granted planning approval.

New Chapter for Carless & Adams Partnership

Posted: 02 May 2018

After more than 30 years at the helm of the Architecture discipline at Carless & Adams Partnership, Mike Bunyan has stepped down as a Designated Member.

Four years ago, Mike and the other Partners introduced a succession plan to bring through new Partners from within the business to lead CAP in to it’s next chapter. The process commenced with the appointment of Melissa Magee as a new Partner in 2014 to lead the Architecture discipline and Graham Moran in 2017 to grow and develop the Surveying side of the business. We have built a strong management team which will retain the personal touch that everyone at CAP prides themselves upon, ensuring our outputs and service remain to the highest standard. Over the past 2 years CAP have become design and quality focused, creating bespoke innovative schemes which have received fantastic success rates, alongside this we have also developed strong client relationships to assist in portfolio developments.

This is an exciting stage for Carless & Adams Partnership, the enthusiasm, drive and commitment of the new team leaves me in no doubt that the reputation of our long established business will continue to blossom. Mike will stay on as a consultant, and will of course remain close to the team and be available to offer his experience and support to both clients and the team as required.

We look forward to working with you on new opportunities in the future and I am sure you will join me in wishing Mike all the best in improving his golf handicap in his newly found spare time.

Arbory Residential Home

Posted: 25 Apr 2018

Erade Exeter Planning Approval

Posted: 23 Apr 2018

Carless & Adams have received Planning Approval for a 68 bed Care Home and 61 Apartment Assisted Living Facility as part of a larger development site in Exeter! Together with our long standing client, Castleoak Care Developments, we work closely with the residential developer and their design team on a single application for the whole site, which has now been granted approval.

One of the interesting challenges of the site is its steep slope. However interesting sites translate into interesting developments where in this case the two split level buildings are separated by a common parking area. Other important considerations that required sensitive responses were the neighbouring Public Open Space, new residential scheme and adjacent Conservation Area, including houses close to the site. We believe this scheme provides opportunities for great views, access to public amenities and much needed accommodation for the elderly population. This is another project we look forward to taking forward to construction.

Cornford Court

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 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.

The Honeypot Children’s Charity’s “ONE CHILDHOOD, ONE CHANCE” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BppaQ6ocieU

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?
If you’d like to support the Honeypot Children’s Charity, there are a number of ways to do so, such as donating via their website or supporting CAP to raise money and awareness.  If you have any fundraising suggestions or ideas for the CAP team then please do get in touch with Fiona to share your suggestions (fsennett@carless-adams.co.uk).  We look forward to setting and meeting high fundraising target for the year and we thank you in advance for your support!
