M&E specialist expands care sector portfolio

THE new £14 million Clydebank Care Home is the latest care home to be added to M&E specialist Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd’s portfolio.

Arc-Tech has previously completed two care sector projects on behalf of Morrison Community Care Group.

The latest 84-bed facility forms part of the regeneration of the Queens Quay in West Dunbartonshire and is being provided for West Dunbartonshire Council and West Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

Each resident will have a private en-suite room and access to a range of amenities including activity rooms, a hairdressing salon and private, outdoor terraces and gardens, amongst others.

Arc-Tech will work in partnership with main contractor CCG to deliver a design and build M&E package that includes a plant room that will link directly to a district heating network. Other works include ventilation, drainage, pipework as well as electrical distribution, small power and lighting, specialist nurse call, disabled alarms, fire, CCTV, intruder alarm, door access and communications systems. Solar PV will also be installed.

John Gallacher, Arc-Tech MD said, “The care sector is one that is expanding across Scotland. With an ageing population, the provision of quality accommodation for the elderly is becoming increasingly important. Arc-Tech has worked with West Dunbartonshire Council previously with the installation of solar PV on a residential development and we are delighted to have been given this opportunity at the Clydebank Care Home.”
