CASE STUDY 33


tile in slate grey.


The assisted living cottages superstruc- ture designs are also of timber frame, utilising the same palette of materials and rainscreen applications used for the 64 assisted living apartments. Again, floors are a part of the timber frame package, and are a mix of traditional softwood trusses and rafter and purlin. The roof covering however is a Forticrete Gemini small format plain interlocking concrete tile in slate grey.


For the care home and clubhouse, the lower ground floor of the building will essentially be a concrete frame supporting a transfer deck at first floor. At this level, traditional cavity wall construction will form the external walls, the infill to the concrete frame and the internal partition walls.


The transfer deck at first floor level provides the substructure to the first and second floor of the building, which is to be constructed in timber frame and utilising the same palette of materials and rainscreen applications as the apartments. Roofs are again part of the timber frame package and are traditional softwood trusses. The roof covering is a Redland Mini-Stonewold plain interlocking concrete tile in charcoal grey.


The developer had strong sustainability


goals for this project – the scheme is intended to achieve a 21 per cent reduction in carbon emissions. With the exception of the care home and clubhouse, all buildings on site have solar PV panels on the roof. Alongside this, sustainable drainage has been incorporated into the design, both for surface water during the construction phase


of the project and for the life-cycle of the village.


PART OF THE COMMUNITY Debden Grange functions essentially as “a village within a village,” but is intended to be “very much part of the local commu- nity.” Retirement Villages hopes to tap into this, selling a lifestyle, as much as a home, and meshing the development into the locality was a key driver for the firm. “Integrating into the community means being hands-on, looking at how we can support the two village schools, and poten- tially work closer with the parish council,” said Mills. Retirement Villages will also be looking to employ local village people for the 20-plus roles that will be necessary once the project is fully up and running. “We also hope to hire local contractors to support the operation of the village and, in turn, hope our residents in the future will play an active role in the wider Newport community,” he added. Mills concludes: “All our villages are welcoming and inclusive, but perhaps this is even more so here at Debden Grange, where we are very much part of the larger community.


“It is more than simply being a developer, we will continue to manage the village for the decades ahead. This means creating a sustainable model based on long-term links and relationships with the wider community. Over time, we will become an important and integral part of the local fabric. “For us, Debden Grange is not only about our future, it will also form an impor- tant part of our heritage.”
