Care Home Construction
Building Care Homes With Modern ICF Techniques
At Basement Homes we lead the way with modern ICF (insulated concrete formwork) techniques and are able to use this building technique to deliver care homes that not only meets the needs of residents, care givers and visitors but also offers a range of other benefits from a construction standpoint.
We work closely with care home providers to ensure you achieve a build that suits the exact needs of your residents and caregivers. This can include care homes in specific areas such as mental health or dementia specialist homes.
In addition to our new build care home solutions we also provide extensions to existing homes and all are built using the ICF method and in strict adherence to expected health and safety practices.
Why ICF Is The Perfection Soltion For Care Home Construction
Due to the vulnerabilities of care home residents it is key that high quality construction methods are used. Not only is it vital that health and safety practices are of the highest order but it is also vital that these homes are as thermo-efficient as possible.
Using ICF as the basis of our construction methods allows us to not only quickly create safe and structurally sound buildings but it also ensures that those buildings are really well insulated. That means that when we build care homes using ICF techniques that the homes will stay cooler in the summer months and much warmer in the winter months.
Care homes can ill afford times without heating, but should these outages ever occur then ICF buildings will retain the warmth for a much longer period of time compared to buildings using more traditional construction methods.
ICF also allows for shorter lead times and are often much more cost efficient than standard construction methods.
