Construction work on care home to start

CONSTRUCTION will begin next week to build a new £12 million specialist care home in Peterborough.

Having progressed through all the planning and design stages, PJ Care will begin work on of their neurological care campus at the Oak Tree Site, in Bretton Way, on Monday.

PJ Care’s construction partners Castleoak will begin site clearance in preparation for the ground works that will begin in February.

There will be a lot of preparation work before building starts to ensure that the construction causes as little disruption as possible to the local ecology and to the community.

Neil Russell, PJ Care’s operations director, said: “We are all very excited now the build is about to begin.

“Everyone has worked really hard to progress smoothly through the design and planning stage and it is going to be great to see the fruits of all that hard work start to grow in the form of our neurological care campus.”

The formal ground-breaking ceremony will be held on February 10.

It is hoped the home will open in Spring 2012, creating up to 180 new jobs in Peterborough.
