Topping out marks major milestone for new care home

Mar 29, 2019 / Posted By Knoll Care Partnership

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:

  • My mum has been a resident in Bowfell House since it opened in September/October 2019. My review, luckily, incorporates my time spent in Bowfell House with my mum up until Covid restrictions came in to place. The move initially and transition for Mum was perfect, it ran smoothly and we as a family had no concerns or worries for Mum, as she settled in very quickly to her new surroundings. The home is run with a team who are very…

  • My Mum went to stay at Bowfell House in May 2020. Prior to her going in my sister, aunt and myself visited the home and met residents and staff. A member of the management team also came to visit my Mum. I found them to be friendly, warm, caring, compassionate and genuine with the person at the centre of all they do. Bowfell House offers an environment similar to that of a high-quality hotel with luxurious, co-ordinated furnishings which provide…

  • Bowfell is a sparkling new state of the art care home which continues to keep hold of the traditions set by Fairways. The attention to detail is second to none, in fact .... I would like to reserve a room! Over the last few weeks I have found myself dancing, singing and playing the maracas, what a great atmosphere for the residents and their close family

    Son of a Resident

  • I cannot praise ALL the staff highly enough for their excellent care and compassion towards my mum.  The home is spotless and the atmosphere is calm and welcoming.  My mum has improved with her mobility, and eating since moving in. Our Family have been involved in all care making decisions for mum and welcomed when we visit. You should all be very proud :)
