College Green Care Village
An ambitious project to provide quality care accomodation
The building of a Care Village on the old Bournville College site is a hugely ambitious project. It provides a “once in a generation” opportunity to achieve something quite special in the heart of the Bournville Estate that is in line with the aspirations of an aging population.
Our proposals aim to respond to a range of needs, from the relatively active and independent elderly, through to those who need specialist care and support, and this combination of accommodation looks to set new standards for Birmingham and beyond.
The masterplan site is approximately 9.28 acres (3.75 hectares) in size. Bournville Architects, in conjunction with BVT, looked at ways in which the sites potential could be enhanced to create a holistic development. Such an approach has resulted in the Care Village having four key components:
- ExtraCare facility (Joint venture between the ECT and BVT)
- Nursing & Dementia Care Home
- Independent Living Home
- Health and Well Being Centre
The four key components will be set within a new landscape environment incorporating a village green, continuing the Bournville tradition of integrating high quality hard and soft landscaping elements into it’s developments.
