Specialist construction and development partner for retirement living, Castleoak, has announced a £13m contract win with Anchor. The deal will deliver a retirement village of luxury independent living cottages and apartments in Haywards Heath, Sussex. Anchor is England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for older people.
The £13 million development at Haywards Heath will include ten independent cottages in timber frame construction, as well as fifty-eight one and two bedroom apartments. The luxury development will offer residents state of the art communal facilities including a coffee shop, hair and beauty salon and professionally landscaped gardens.
