Case Study

Cumnor Hill - Oxford

Assent assisted with the construction of a new 72 bed, 3 storey, split-level care home at The Breeches, Cumnor Hill, Oxford.

Cumnor Hill

The construction of a new 72 bed, 3 storey, split-level care home at The Breeches, Cumnor Hill, Oxford was developed on a steeply sloping site and fire appliance access is particularly challenging. Assent assisted by suggesting a dry riser to aid fire-fighting and early discussions with the fire authority to ensure the consultation was as smooth as possible.

The architects were Hay Associates and the contractor was Lawrence Baker who wanted to create a split level with open plan communal resident’s facilities that reflected modern living.

Assent was chosen because of our extensive experience within the health and care home sector which meant that we fully understood the relevant issues and the methods that could be employed to overcome them.

Assent are at the forefront of developments in the health care field and are totally committed to ensure that compliance with the requirements does not compromise good design.
