The Client

Broomfield Grange was delivered to the client European Care Group as a turnkey solution by The Pickstock Group. Elements Europe worked alongside its parent company Pickstock Construction, who specialise in traditional methods of construction, to deliver two care homes in Chelmsford, Essex.

Elements Europe manufactured 140 Room Pods for Broomfield Grange.

Project Description: Structural Bathroom Pods and Light Steel Frame

The homes were built using the LSF Façade and LSF Structure solutions. Meeting the needs for the fast track building of bathrooms and kitchens, LSF Structure optimises hybrid construction methods by providing fully load-bearing capability for buildings avoiding the duplication of floors, walls and ceilings, the system is ideal for the care home sector.

LSF Façade is a fully integrated light steel frame building solution, providing highly engineered bespoke solutions, offering the efficiencies of cutting-edge design, manufacture, assemble and installation techniques.

The nursing home was handed over on schedule and officially opened by the Mayor of Essex in April 2009. The new facilities represented a significant investment for the European Care Group. The homes were built with state of the art features and innovations including a “Euro Cafe” (an Alzheimers cafe) for residents and their families.
