Project updates: A former tobacco factory, a care home and school catering facilities

18 July 2014

Our team of architects and designers are busy working on designing, converting and creating new school and care home facilities across the South West. We’re delighted to be working with Skanska and the Bristol LEP, Wiltshire Council and Futures for Somerset to help them bring their design visions to life. The expansion of Ashton Gate Primary School in Bristol will involve the conversion of former Imperial Tobacco offices and here at DKA we’re proud to be respectfully transforming a historical landmark into a lasting community asset.

We’re also delighted to be working with Wiltshire Council to design a 50-apartment extra care home in Devizes. Learnings from our extensive supported living portfolio will aid our design of this community facility, as well our dementia care strategy, devised by our in-house environmental psychologist, Rebecca Furse.

And finally, as Somerset schools prepare for the introduction of free school meals, we’re working with Futures for Somerset to provide centralised catering facilities that will meet the demand for the required service.
