New Bridges, a care provider supporting adults with complex needs, was advised by Bruton Knowles on how to maintain Manor Lodge’s Victorian features whilst recommending better use of space.
The home provides accommodation and around the clock support for seven adults with acquired brain injuries, learning disabilities and complex needs.
By utilising existing space differently, room was successfully made for the installation of a lift within the three floor property as well as equipping all bedrooms with en-suite facilities.
Richard Wheater, finance director at New Bridges says he is ‘thrilled’ with the new property. He said: “Our service users are settling in nicely. Not only were we able to successfully develop the property to meet their needs, but based on Bruton Knowles’ recommendations, we were able to provide extra room for service users to enjoy without compromising on the quality.”
Richard Frost, Partner at Bruton Knowles' Cardiff office said: “The saving in both space and money allowed for a number of extras to be included which worked out significantly cheaper for New Bridges than the alternative, which would have been to undertake a new-build.”
New Bridges opened its first home, Ty Newydd, in Newport in July 2007, as a home to six individuals with acquired brain injuries.
It aims to enable and support individuals to achieve lifestyles that are both satisfying to themselves and valued by others in society. Those with an acquired brain injury will usually come to New Bridges requiring a high level of care following the acute phase of their rehabilitation.
