November 2016: Photos of the completed Latimer Lodge, now open for viewings


October 2016 - Latimer Lodge reaches practical completion! All interiors are completed, Building Control sign-off is achieved and we now await our inspection visit from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is early November before we can open our doors for business. We'll be announcing details of our Wednesday open days shortly.


15/09/16 - with works now nearing their final couple of weeks we're putting the finishing touches to Latimer Lodge. Internal/external signage has been installed, rooms have been wallpapered and carpeted, and our luxury furniture and fittings have started to arrive. All works are scheduled to complete at the end of September. Watch this space!


26/08/16 - as we reach the last two weeks of our fit-out works some of the final fittings and furnishings are now being installed. Carpets and vinyl flooring is being laid and artwork hung in both care studios and communal areas. Furniture and furnishings begin to arrive on 05 September, with project completion expected the following week.


05/08/16 - progress to date photos of our reception, dining and lounge areas. Over the coming weeks they will be transformed into the stunning interiors shown in our artists impressions. We have 4-5 weeks left before we can unveil the property in its final glory. Exciting times!


29/07/16 - external painting works are progressing and ground floor communal areas, including reception, are now plastered and taking their final form. En-suite bathroom tiling is almost complete and sanitaryware being plumbed in.


July 2016 - with remodeling works complete and structural alterations approved by local building control officer, our team has moved on to the painting and decorating phase of the project, with tiling of en-suites now well underway and the first coat of paint for all 1st floor care studios. Visitors can now truly get a feel for the final look and feel of the care community.


June 2016 - remodeling works included the removal of walls to create new care studios and en-suite areas as well as the creation of a considerably more open and welcoming reception area (compare with Image 1 in April photo-gallery). Jet washing of the external elevations and roof tiling has significantly rejuvenated the property, as has the on-site repair and replacement of sash windows to the front facade.


April/May 2016 - site clearance works at Latimer Lodge. The walking frames shown (image 4) were shipped overseas by an international charity, other items have been recycled whenever possible.
