The Elms is large, traditionally constructed building, situated in Cheshire and surrounded by open spaces. Welcoming in appearance, The Elms has been transformed into a supported living home through the creation of six flats for vulnerable members of society. To transform The Elms into a new home, the building required a series of internal and external refurbishment works, including repairs to the structure, the fabric and services. This included new plumbing, electrics, plastering and woodwork, as well as decoration throughout.
Internally, The Elms has been reconfigured to provide each individual with their own apartment. This includes a bedroom, lounge, en-suite facilities and a kitchenette complete with fridge freezer. New flooring has been installed throughout and the building has benefitted from the replacement of existing windows with new uPVC windows. An office space has also been created within The Elms. To ensure safety within the building, a fire detection system has been installed, along with emergency lighting and handrails on the staircases. Externally, the grounds of The Elms include a mix of hard and soft landscaping surrounded by boundary fencing with an electric gate.
