The Knoll Care Partnership (KCP) marked a major milestone today in the construction of its new Bowfell House Care Home with a traditional “topping out” ceremony.

The topping out represents the building reaching its highest point.

Jayne Callaghan and Claire Gardom, partners in KCP, laid a ceremonial brick. They were joined by fellow partners of KCP as well as representatives of both the main building contractor, Warrington based Cruden Property Services, CSquared Architects who specialise in designing dementia friendly buildings and local contractor, James Callaghan Sons & Co

Ltd (CALCO), who constructed the foundations for what will soon become a luxurious 40 bed care home for older people.
The family owned and managed Knoll Care Partnership have been providing care for the elderly in Trafford for over 30 years and this latest development will allow the business to continue extending family based care for the next 30 years and beyond. Commenting on the development so far, Matthew Callaghan of KCP said:

“This topping out ceremony represents the mid-point of the construction phase which has employed over 70 people to date and the finished building will provide permanent employment opportunities for over 50 local people. As a local company, we wanted Bowfell to be an attractive addition to the street scene and be calmly appropriate to its prominent position in the town. We believe the finished building will achieve this whilst providing a care home fit for the future that offers a great place to live and work.”

Bowfell House will provide 40 ensuite bedrooms for older people. The state of the art facility has been designed to be dementia friendly, will have quiet lounges, dedicated activity rooms, a hairdressing salon and balcony overlooking landscaped gardens.

The home is due to open in Autumn 2019. If you are interested in working in the new facility or wish to secure the room of your choice please contact Claire Gardom at:
