Queens Quay House Finalist at Scottish Design Awards

< Latest

Cooper Cromar are delighted that our Queens Quay House care home has been selected as a Finalist in the ‘Health Building or Project’ category at this year’s Scottish Design Awards!

The £14 million state of the art care facility provides 84 residential bed spaces together with a 50-person daycare centre. The building has one 14-bedroom flat and seven 10-bedroom flats with each resident having their own en-suite room. Each flat has living and dining areas and a kitchen to allow residents to relax and enjoy a variety of environments, while maintaining their independence.

All the flats have been designed with supportive colour schemes to assist those with dementia in helping identify with their home and in creating a warm and homely feel. Residents have been involved in choosing their colour schemes and soft furnishings.

A number of activity rooms enable residents to continue and develop new hobbies and there is an onsite bistro and hairdressing salon. Residents can walk around the building, providing a sense of freedom within a safe environment.

Outside, a variety of courtyard and garden spaces provide a safe opportunity for gardening as well as enjoying the sculptures, water feature, grass activity zone and spaces to rest and socialise.

Thank you to our Client, West Dunbartonshire Council and the Project Team: CCG, West Dunbartonshire Council Consultancy Services, Atkins, Bayne Stevenson and Arctech.

The winners will be announced on 15 July. Fingers crossed for Awards Night!
