Pitfodels Wood: A New Care Home in the Making

We are delighted to bring you the latest updates on our exciting project at Pitfodels Wood. Our new home is taking shape beautifully, this development marks a significant milestone in our journey, and we couldn't be prouder of the progress so far.

In this article, we'll take you on a virtual tour of the construction site, showcasing the hard work and dedication of our team and the team from Clark Contracts. From the foundation work to the eco-friendly practices we're implementing, here's everything you need to know about the ongoing construction at Pitfodels Wood.

Construction Highlights:

Foundations and Structural Work

The foundation is the most critical part of any construction project, and we are pleased to report that the foundation work at Pitfodels Wood is progressing smoothly. The team is laying a robust foundation that will support the entire structure, ensuring its stability and durability for years to come. The structural framework is also taking shape, with concrete walls rising steadily. This phase sets the stage for the subsequent construction activities and brings us one step closer to our vision.

Excavation and Earthworks

Excavation work is well underway, with heavy machinery working tirelessly to prepare the site for construction. This phase involves removing excess soil, rock, and other materials to create a level base for the new buildings. The team is meticulously planning and executing these earthworks to maintain the natural landscape's integrity while making room for our new facilities. The sight of these powerful machines at work is a testament to the project's scale and the expertise involved in bringing it to life.

Material Delivery and Storage

Construction materials started arriving on-site weeks ago, including high-quality structural components. These materials are being stored securely to ensure they remain in pristine condition until they are needed. We are committed to using only the best materials for this project, which will contribute to the overall quality and aesthetics of the finished buildings within the beauty of the existing landscape. Our careful planning and logistics ensure that materials are readily available as the construction progresses, keeping the project on schedule.

Community and Environmental Considerations

At Pitfodels Wood, we are not just building a care home; we are creating a community that harmonises with its natural surroundings. Our project includes plans for ample green spaces, walking paths, and sustainable practices to minimise our environmental footprint. We are using eco-friendly materials and construction methods to ensure that our development is as sustainable as possible. Our commitment to the environment extends beyond the construction phase, with plans for maintaining and enhancing the natural beauty of the area for future generations to enjoy.

CEO Cillian Hennessey's On-Site Visit

Our CEO, Cillian Hennessey, recently visited the site to oversee the progress and motivate the team. His hands-on approach and dedication to the project are truly inspiring. During his visit, Cillian took some time to capture a few moments on camera, providing us with an exclusive look at the site. His presence on-site underscores our commitment to excellence and our determination to see this project through to completion.
