Project Details

Covent House
Care Home


Brims Construction was appointed as Principal Contractor in February 2010 by Prestwick Care Group for the design and construction of Covent House Care Home in Birtley. Covent House is a 63-bed purpose built care home, providing dementia nursing care, residential and general nursing care. Additional facilities include a cinema, cafe, hairdresser’s salon, physiotherapy treatment room, laundry, a lift to all floors, lounges and dining rooms on all floors, and a quiet lounge located on each floor. Externally, the works involved the formation of a new car park, construction of a new boundary wall and fencing along with the formation of secluded landscaped gardens with terraced areas, seating and planted areas. There is also a roof garden – thought to be the first of its kind in the North East – with walking paths and planted raised beds.
