Gladstone House has been shortlisted for Sustainable Development of the Year at the East Midlands Bricks Awards 2019. The extra care facility has also been nominated for Excellence in Design for the work of Studio-G Associates.
Gladstone House comprises of a range of apartments for people aged 60+, made up of 48 one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroom homes, as well as extra facilities such as a beauty room with hairdressers and a cafeteria.
The £8 million facility was purposely designed to be dementia-friendly, meaning no two corridors are the same. Some corridors are differentiated by feature walls, with themed vinyl wall coverings of historical pictures and images. This provides residents with a trip down memory lane, whilst also helping to navigate around the building.
The features of the building have been carefully selected to help residents live independently, but with access to 24-hour support.
Outside, there are sensory gardens with a living green wall and the cascading atrium green roofs. The building was built by Henry Boot Construction Limited on behalf of Newark and Sherwood Homes, Newark and Sherwood District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
Dave Newmarch, Assistant Director – Housing Management and Responsive Repairs Service at Newark and Sherwood Homes commented: “We are delighted as project managers of Gladstone House to have this multi million pound flagship building selected as a finalist for the Sustainable Development of the Year award.
“On behalf of Newark and Sherwood District Council, we manage this exceptional extra care scheme where people are able to continue to live independently in a building which has a real sense of warmth, community and homeliness.”
