RFS DELIVERING COMPOSITE FLOORING FOR EXTRA CARE BUILD

Raised Floor Solutions has commenced delivery of composite flooring for a new Extra Care retirement housing scheme in Gorton, Greater Manchester.

Bellamy Court is one of four new Extra Care schemes recently approved by Manchester City Council as it aims to meet the growing demand from older people with care requirements to live independently in a modern well-designed house or apartment, but with the support of an immediate community and on-site health services.

The new apartment building, on Abbey Hey Lane, will provide 106 apartments in an area close to local amenities and public transport routes, yet identified as offering a lack of housing options suited to older residents.

The Council is actively supporting and encouraging later living schemes through its ‘Living Longer, Living Better’ approach to health and social care.

Work started on site in May 2019. Raised Floor Solutions’ Metaldeck steel decking team moved on site in October, supplying and installing 6528m2 of Kingspan Multideck MD50 with a 0.85mm profile. 

Metcon concrete flooring has designed and will shortly install a 150mm concrete slab reinforced with A193 mesh to complete the composite flooring works.

The project is due for completion in February 2021.
