Our Managing Director Chris Straw recently travelled to England, to research the world’s best practice in seniors living design.
Chris took part in a Studying and Advancing Global Eldercare (SAGE) Study Tour, which gives seniors living executives the opportunity to experience world-class seniors living models firsthand.
The tour included several seniors living site visits in London and Bristol including The St Monica Trust in Bristol. The not-for-profit organisation has themed their developments around key community stories and icons. Their latest project, “The Chocolate Quarter” centres around the refurbishment of an existing, unused four-storey Cadbury chocolate factory building. The organisation has cleverly incorporated over 10,000sqm of office space into the site, along with a number of businesses such as public restaurants, wellness spaces and health centres.
The project is a forward-thinking exemplar of how seniors living developments can consider alternative business models to future-proof their facilities.
We love travelling the world to bring the latest research and best practices to our clients.
