Topping out ceremony at Riverside Place, Ware

The final trim was secured on the roof of a new luxury care home in Ware this week as part of a traditional topping out ceremony to mark the latest milestone at the development.

Deputy Mayor of Ware Cllr Mick Standley helped to secure the final elements of the roof at Riverside Place by Caring Homes, along with Caring Homes founding director Helena Jeffery, architect John Bell, representatives from building contractors Dalton Homes and other Caring Homes colleagues.

Riverside Place, Plaxton Way, overlooks the River Lea and is a 72 bed, purpose-built home designed to meet existing and future demand for residential, nursing and dementia care in the picturesque Hertfordshire town.

Cllr Standley who is also chairman of the Ware Town Council Planning Committee, was given a tour of the building before going up to the roof.  He was impressed with the design of Riverside Place, commenting; “The design is impressive and I really like the roof slope, a flat roof is one of the things we particularly don’t like.

“Ware is a wonderful town and Riverside Place is in a good location for a care home here, we wish Caring Homes every success.”

The four-storey modern building, due to open in 2018 has many eye-catching design details including a large glazed entrance, irregular roof line and balconies to provide additional external space for residents. The living accommodation is state of the art, with a wealth of communal areas for socialising and activities. Facilities will include a bistro area, private dining room, cinema, hair salon, quiet lounges and activity rooms.

Building is being carried out at the Plaxton Way site by contractors Dalton Homes and a  stunning orangery and function suite has been created on the top floor where residents and visitors will be able to relax and enjoy refreshments with views across the river and the Hertfordshire countryside.

Many ground floor bedrooms and communal spaces will have direct access to the gardens and there is a courtyard roof terrace offering additional green space to enjoy the outdoors.
