3 homes for 12 residents
Mencap is the UK’s leading charity working in partnership for people with learning disability. The Dolphin is Mencap’s first purpose built new build development, which provides very specific requirements for bespoke accommodation for twelve residents in three individual houses and staff accommodation built around a central courtyard.
The charity appointed Boulter Mossman as contract administrator under a JCT intermediate form of contract.
The build itself proved a challenge as it sits within a flood plain and close to natural aquifers, requiring substantial drainage and infrastructure work preceding the main construction work, with careful management throughout.
Each house is bespoke and Boulter Mossman worked closely with Mencap and the individual residents and their families to ensure the homes give comfortable safe environments, complying with all current statutory standards.
