Luton Home Development Update

19 March 2010

The build is progressing very well, with the Contractor taking full advantage of the recent break in the weather to advance the programme significantly. Phase A timber frame is complete, 1st fix M&E (wiring and plumbing) is nearing completion and the external facing brickwork is due to start Monday 22nd March. One bedroom and en-suite have been fitted out to agree the layout of all fixtures and fittings and this has been signed of by the Quantum Care Ltd Team. Phase B is following closely behind, with timber frame due for completion 29 March 2010.

Overall, the build is approximately 4 weeks ahead of programme which, given the extreme weather this winter, is a creditable achievement. The site was visited earlier this week by Tony Keen, Chair of the Development Sub-Committee, who was very pleased with progress.

All drawings and specifications have now been agreed, including an upgraded lighting system, remodelled reception area including Best Friends Cafe and Hairdressing Salon, redesigned en-suite showers and more mature landscaping.

We are all very pleased with how the development is progressing, and very excited about the prospect of being able to take occupancy of the building earlier than expected.
