On 13th September, Nehemiah UCHA celebrated the official opening of McCalla House since its recent refurbishment.
McCalla House in Graiseley, Wolverhampton is one on Nehemiah’s key retirement schemes and has recently undergone a substantial refurbishment. Fellows have worked on behalf of Nehemiah as Project and Cost Managers for several recent refurbishment projects. Working with the Seddon Construction (Main Contractor) and Monteith Scott (Interior Design), the works entailed a transformation of the retirement home communal areas, including a new residents lounge, IT suite, communal kitchen, salon, including feature lighting throughout the scheme. The works were completed using a JCT intermediate form of Contract with Contractor’s Designed Portion and were completed over a 14-week period.
Fellows joined Nehemiah staff, residents and guests to celebrate with the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Elias Masih Mattu and the Mayoress Mrs Asha Mattu who officially opened the revitalised retirement home. It was clear to see the positive impact the works have had on the residents whom all praised the design and have proudly shown off their new surroundings to their family and friends.
Just as the McCalla House founding fathers helped plant the first foundation, the event was signified with the planting of a tree by Mayor and Mayoress Mattu.
Commenting on the refurbishment works, Nehemiah Chief Executive Llewellyn Graham added “It is great to see one of our long standing retirement schemes refurbished and to see how happy our customers are. For me it is the improvement in the quality of life for our customers that makes it so special and very worthwhile.”
Fellows are proud to have a strong working relationship with Nehemiah UCHA, and look forward to a continued partnership in successfully delivering more schemes of this quality.
