Tucker M&E were pleased to be involved in this local project. Extra care sheltered housing gives the opportunity for people to live independently in an environment which is suitable for aging in place. The facility comprises 40 two-bedroom apartments as well as associated communal facilities, all designed for older people.

Project Challenges
The project was ERYC’s first full BIM project and as such there were a number of teething problems, however the BIM process was used to successfully deliver the information required by the client for construction. Making sure all the services installed were suitable for use by the elderly was a big concern. A lot of time was spent making sure all systems would be operable by the end users.

The building project was a great success. The client has a top-rated facility that suits its tenants. All designs achieved a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating.
