Following a competitive tender, the contracts division of Mactaggart & Mickel has signed a contract with leading care home provider Meallmore Ltd to build a 52-bed, two storey care home set within landscaped grounds.
It will be traditionally built with a modern design and a number of quality design features including an attractive roofline.
The development programme spans 16 months and is likely to create local jobs throughout the construction period. Once complete it will offer high quality, personalised care for older people, including the frail elderly.
Mactaggart & Mickel is an award-winning, fourth generation family business that already has a positive association with the area via the provision of quality housing and a local Co-operative store at Greenan Views.
Jamie McLean, head of contracts and timber systems, says: “We are proud to be working on this landmark development. We will bring our award-winning Mactaggart & Mickel construction expertise to bear, having ensured that the design of the care home blends seamlessly with nearby housing and other amenities.”
Meallmore is a family run company with over 30 years’ experience of providing care and 23 care homes across Scotland.
Michael Gillespie, property director, says: “Mactaggart & Mickel has demonstrated a detailed understanding of our requirements and we are confident they will deliver a home of the highest standard.”
Construction of the care home is due to be completed in spring 2020.
