The Marlow development will consist of 79 suites, 16 of which will be purposely designed for dementia care provision, and the £11m project has also been designed to incorporate low carbon technologies, adhering to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standards.
Director of development and construction for Signature, Wayne Pryce, comments: “We look forward to working closely with GB to deliver another high quality home. Our residents are at the heart of everything we do and we focus on delivering the best home for them, from site acquisition through to building completion. We strive to offer a place where people can genuinely feel at home in specially designed suites, where residents can enjoy quality meals, a full range of activities and receive the best possible care.
