Work begins on £20m New Care home in Manchester

Building work is underway on a new state-of-the-art £20m care home on the site of the former Mercure Hotel in Bowdon, Greater Manchester.

Provider New Care’s latest home will have 51 bedrooms, each with its own private wet room. With practical completion confirmed for May 2025, the home will also feature landscaped grounds, communal lounges, and dining rooms, along with a nail bar and hairdresser.

New Care has a portfolio of 15 care facilities across the UK, with another under construction in Herne Bay. Principal contractor McGoff Construction (New Care’s sister company and also part of the McGoff Group) is managing both the Bowdon and Herne Bay builds.

Dawn Collett, commissioning director at New Care, said: “It’s wonderful that work has now officially started on site in Bowdon. The foundations will soon be complete, which means the brickwork can commence, and it won’t be long before the shell of the building will be seen above the hoarding. All is on track for practical completion in May 2025, which is great news.”
