Marshall Construction is now well underway with work on a 74 bed care home in Cramond, Edinburgh. The site in Edinburgh is being developed for Walker Healthcare by Marshall Construction, who won the £7.4m contract by competitive tender via Jones Associates, Glasgow (Chartered Quantity Surveyors & Project Managers).

The 74 en-suite bedroom care home will provide personalised care services for older people and will include a wide range of shared living spaces such as small dining rooms, lounges and activities rooms.

Graeme Kelly, Director of Walker Healthcare explains: “We were impressed with Marshall Construction’s strong track record of building a number of successful developments across the residential care sector.”

Gareth Bland, Business Development Manager for Marshall Construction said: “We are delighted to be working with Walker Healthcare, Jones Associates and the rest of the Design Team on this fantastic project. This is a major development for Marshall Construction which is providing another opportunity for local job creation as well as new apprenticeships, work placements and curriculum support for local colleges and schools.“
