J Tomlinson hands over £6.5m luxury care home in Oxfordshire

The construction team at J Tomlinson has handed over a state-of-the-art £6.5m care home to developer, Hamberley Development.

Based in Cumnor, Oxfordshire, 70-bed Chawley Grove Care Home will provide residential, nursing and dementia care, with luxury facilities including a deluxe cinema, a health and beauty salon, a private dining suite, as well as en-suite bedrooms throughout.

The 16-month design and build project, which marks the second new-build care home J Tomlinson has successfully delivered on behalf of Hamberley, was completed on time and budget and opened to residents in early May.

J Tomlinson also constructed the marketing suite for the development, which was officially opened by Councillor Monica Lovatt, chairman of the Vale of White Horse District Council, in February.

The completed scheme marks the latest in a range of extra care projects undertaken by the construction, maintenance and refurbishment services partner, with a third, 43-bed West Midlands-based specialist care facility due to be handed over to Hamberley in October 2019. In addition, J Tomlinson’s commercial refurbishment division is also currently undertaking the refurbishment of Galanos House – a Warwickshire dementia care facility managed by the Royal British Legion.

Darroch Baker, managing director (construction) at J Tomlinson, commented: “J Tomlinson is delighted to have successfully handed over our second new-build care project on behalf of Hamberley Care. We have worked closely with our client and the wider project team to create a luxury facility with the resident experience at the forefront of our shared vision, and we hope residents flourish within their new environment.

“We are currently on site in Worcester, where we are working hard on the construction of another specialist care facility for Hamberley, which will mark the third scheme undertaken in partnership with our client.”

Tim Street, director of Hamberley Development, said Chawley Grove Care Home will be the leading high-quality care home in Oxford. He commented: “The team at J Tomlinson have delivered a best-in-class care home for Hamberley, and we look forward to welcoming new residents in the weeks and months ahead.

“Having the right built environment is critical and we are proud to have gone the extra mile at Chawley Grove to produce a homely and luxurious building that will also facilitate the provision of outstanding care.”

Nottingham-based J Tomlinson, which also has key offices in Canwell in the West Midlands and Wakefield in Yorkshire, offers a range of integrated building services which include construction, mechanical and electrical services (M&E), facilities management, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance and regeneration.

The company works in many sectors, including care and supported living, healthcare, education, commercial, industrial, blue light and heritage.

Double success as J Tomlinson takes RHI Installer of the Year in the West Midlands

It’s official….  J Tomlinson is the top Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Installer of the Year across the whole of the Midlands.

Last month, the firm was named as RHI Installer of the Year at the East Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards 2019.

Now the firm has also won the accolade of RHI Installer of the Year at the West Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards 2019.

The awards, which took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Coventry on Friday 12th April, celebrate best practice in the energy efficiency sector as it works to help homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and decrease carbon emissions.

The RHI Installer of the Year title recognises fully-qualified RHI Installers and contractors that provide excellent customer service and demonstrate a high standard of quality workmanship, whilst making a significant impact within their local communities.

Maintenance, refurbishment and construction services partner, J Tomlinson, has delivered over 70 renewable heat incentive installations during the past year alone, including both air and ground source heat pump schemes. As well as helping many residents save 30-40% on their heating bills, these energy efficient heating solutions also benefit the company’s clients by supporting them in meeting their carbon reduction targets.  In addition, as J Tomlinson is an MCS-accredited installer, housing organisations that have opted for renewable heat installations can apply for financial support via the Renewable Heat Incentive – a government scheme that aims to help the UK achieve its target of producing 12% of its heat from renewable sources by 2020.

The company, which is based in Nottingham and has branch offices at Canwell in the West Midlands and Wakefield in Yorkshire, was also highly commended in the Large-Scale Project of the Year category at the West Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards, alongside Vaillant UK and client Bromford Housing. This joint nomination follows the installation of a Vaillant flexotherm ground source heat pump scheme that is helping Bromford residents living in an over-55’s sheltered housing development in Solihull to stay warm whilst reducing their fuel bills. In turn, the scheme has enabled Bromford to qualify for ECO and RHI funding and is also helping the Midlands-based housing organisation to meet their goals to bring all rental or let properties to a minimum EPC rating of C.

Steve Kirkland, director of maintenance at J Tomlinson, commented: “We are delighted to have been named regional RHI Installer of the Year both in the East Midlands and West Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards.

“J Tomlinson has been delivering renewable heating installations for over ten years and it is excellent to see so many housing organisations in the UK opting to introduce renewable heating solutions to their off-gas housing stock.”

J Tomlinson first received its RHI Installer of the Year title at the East Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards, which took place just last month. As a result of its recent regional wins, J Tomlinson has qualified to enter the National Energy Efficiency Awards 2019, which will be taking place in September.

 

£2.6m university M&E contract for J Tomlinson

J Tomlinson is working on a £2.6m million contract to provide mechanical and electrical engineering services for a new development at Keele University.

The company has been appointed by main contractor Bouygues to undertake the M&E work for the university’s multi-million-pound, state-of-the-art Smart Innovation Hub facility, which will house both Keele Business School and incubated companies.

This is the second project that J Tomlinson has undertaken for the university, and follows the refurbishment of Lennard Jones Laboratories, delivered by the company’s commercial refurbishment team in 2016.

The latest project includes work that spans the entire three-storey building – including the roof, where the plant will be installed, as well as a photovoltaic system.

To be known as the Denise Coates Foundation Building, the landmark iconic 47,000 sq ft development is due for completion in 2019.

Tony O’Toole, Managing Director – Mechanical & Electrical – at Nottingham-based J Tomlinson, said: “J Tomlinson has worked with many universities on a range of different developments and projects, providing a variety of services from construction and M&E through to commercial refurbishment, and we are delighted to once again be involved in a key scheme for Keele University.

“The Denise Coates Foundation Building is a significant investment in the Business School and we are very pleased to be supporting the university, which has been ranked number one in England for course satisfaction in The Guardian University Guide 2018.”

The M&E works will include under-floor heating, radiators, ventilation, electrical and data including cabinets and patching system, AV system containment and wiring, induction loop, LED lighting, emergency lighting and signage, PV roof panels, roof plant, air handling units, CCTV system, and connections to floor drain, as well as street lighting.

This is the latest in a number of different projects undertaken by J Tomlinson at various universities across the UK. The company has completed three refurbishment projects for the University of Warwick alone this year, and at the start of 2018 finished a construction and M&E, indoor and external redevelopment, at the University of Nottingham’s Portland Building. It has also undertaken a recent £1m commercial refurbishment at the University of Sheffield.

The new building at Keele University has been designed by RIBA award-winning and Sterling Prize-nominated architects BDP. In keeping with the University’s green ethos, the facility has been planned with a focus on sustainability, resulting in a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.

J Tomlinson, which was founded in the 1950s, provides a range of integrated building solutions including construction, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical services (M&E), and facilities management. The company operates primarily across the East Midlands, West Midlands and Yorkshire, and has key offices at Beeston near Nottingham, as well as Canwell in the West Midlands and Wakefield in South Yorkshire.

It works across all major sectors, including universities, student accommodation, healthcare, social housing, commercial and industrial.
