Bradford Care Home Project

Project: Bradford Care Home

Company: Pasquill

Sector: Residential

Technology: Roofing Systems

Project Overview:
A new-build development near Bradford comprising apartments, dementia flats and a community day centre has presented Pasquill with a challenging roof truss project, thanks to its complicated rooflines on seven different levels.

Project Type/Application:

While the products manufactured at Pasquill’s Chorley branch took the form of relatively standard trusses, it was nevertheless a project that required an extremely high level of collaboration between Pasquill and the scheme’s design team in order to solve the correct geometry of the roofscape.

With its numerous pitches and bearing heights, it was crucial to ensure that fascia and soffit were correctly positioned. During the course of the design collaboration process, Pasquill attended three site meetings in order to optimise its service offering.

Outcome / results / success factor
The development provides communal facilities for its residents, all in a modern living environment.
The scheme includes forty-seven self-contained residential apartments, thirty individual rooms for dementia care, and a two-level day care centre open to older people living locally. There is also extensive landscaping including a secure ‘sensory’ gardens and roof terraces for residents and visitors.

Designed to achieve the highest levels of efficiency, the development utilises renewable technology and sustainable systems such as solar panels, green roofs and an environmentally-friendly drainage system.

Commenting on its work with the project’s contractor, Bardsley Construction, Andrew Rawlinson, Pasquill’s Area Sales Manager, said:

“This project is unique in that it is not a typical project or design that we are involved in on a day to day basis. It is more unusual than any standard projects. Bardsley Construction is a company that I have personally dealt with for 12 years, and have built trust and a good trading relationship with. Pasquill’s emphasis on close collaboration with customers, from sales and design through to operations and manufacturing is what differentiates us from other companies in this sector.”
