Nursing and Dementia Care

Octopus Healthcare have a real estate portfolio of over 75 properties; including care homes, retirement communities, specialist education schools and hospitals.  They focus on making a positive impact on both people and communities by funding and developing inspiring new healthcare real estate properties.


The latest of such projects is in Cambridge, an £8m two year project to design and build a 75 bed residential nursing and dementia care home.


The original design was use a steel and loose cut construction method for the roof.  However working with Carevalue Structures and Heywood Timber Engineering they were able to re-design the roof entirely out of trusses.


“Heywood Timber Engineering managed to completely design out the steel with a trussed roof solution, simplifying the project, saving money and improving the speed of build”

Carevalue are a long-term client of Heywood Timber Engineering, purchasing both trussed roof and engineered joist solutions which they fit themselves as a complete managed turn-key solution.  Often specialising in the large complex projects they rely on Heywood Timber Engineering for the design, quality manufacture and timely delivery of engineered wood solutions.
