Extensions, Renovations and Conversions –

Effective utilisation of ‘space’ provides a care home owner with the best opportunity to obtain the greatest return on their care home investment. But it is very unlikely that the care home owner will have the skills to manage this process alone. We believe working with a professional architect, is the most cost effective way for care home owners to maximise this return on their investment.

Whether the care home owners are planning to buy another property to convert, or they already own a number care homes, taking advantage of our collaboration service, will enable you to provide the care home owners with the best possible service. There is no cost for our initial assessment or subsequent meetings to discuss the opportunities we see to increase bedroom space.

An off the shelf design is not the answer because each care home is unique and so every avenue is discussed during feasibility meetings. This ensures each build is as efficient as it can be so that it can adapt to its users changing needs without further modification.

Everyone wants to keep build costs down and by working collaboratively, we can advise on how to maximise space within your innovative design. We have everything you need under one roof. From concept to completion, you will deal with AGA staff who are experienced, conscientious and committed to delivering excellent customer service.


Specialist bathing and Level Access Shower Rooms –

We tend to find that private clients with mobility issues value safety alongside their independence. As an architect, you can effectively provide your client with that sense of well-being by designing an effective specialised bathing solution.

A level access shower is defined as a shower with no step or lip between the floor and the shower area. This means that they are ideal for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility, as there is no step or threshold to have to “navigate” in order to get into the shower. This increases accessibility and helps to maintain an individual’s independence.

With uncertainty in the property market and confusion surround the provision of social care, more and more private clients are choosing to invest in their existing property. The investment in a level access showers not only makes financial sense, as it will add to the value of their home, it also makes the client’s life more comfortable.

From concept to completion our expert installation teams will be happy to collaborate with you and take care of it all, including all plumbing and electrical work, floor and wall finishes and the installation of any accessories you choose.

The days of sanitised and institutionalised bathrooms are now well and truly over. The style of the room can be made to look however you wish. A wet room can use stylish tiling to create a luxury finish in conjunction with a non-slip safety floor. There are a huge range of colours and styles to choose from, all of which can be complemented from a range of functional, yet stylish accessories.



External Maintenance –

Perception is reality and critical to a successful first impression for any care home is the external appearance and condition of the common areas, both have huge impact. As new residents arrive or visitors approach the home, to those that reside there, care home owners want the premises to be aesthetically pleasing and welcoming to everyone.

But who, in the intensive environment of a busy care home has the time to plan for this work to be done? Answer – architects and designers do! You create the scheme and we can do the work.

With over 20 years’ experience maintaining facilities we offer an unrivalled service. We have everything you need under one roof so you will be dealing with AGA staff who are experienced, conscientious and committed to delivering excellent customer service.
