Mechanical installation expertise of Dixon Group called upon as work starts on new two care home developments

Dixon Group has been chosen as the mechanical specialist to complete full plumbing, heating and ventilation installations on two new care home developments for an award-winning East Yorkshire provider.

It will see our Dixon Integrated Services division, which specialises in mechanical and electrical design and installation for commercial developments, work directly for Hull-based building specialists Hobson & Porter.

Our teams have already started on site at the first of the two new Yorkare care homes in Louth, Lincolnshire.

The 72 bedroom facility will provide both residential and dementia care, with all bedrooms including ensuite wet rooms.

Our teams will complete all mechanical works throughout the building, including a building management system, plumbing, heating (including underfloor heating), ventilation, air conditioning and gas installation and plantroom works.

It is the third Yorkare home worked on by Dixon Group, having previously completed similar works on developments in Hessle and Hornsea.

The Louth facility is expected to be open later in the year, and once our work is completed on this site our teams will again work for Hobson & Porter on a similar a 66 bedroom Yorkare facility near the centre of Cottingham, East Yorkshire, which is due to open early next year.

Shaun Lamming, Contracts Manager, said: “These are excellent contracts for Dixon Group and we are very pleased to have been selected once again for the mechanical works across both developments.

“Yorkare are a fantastic Care Provider whom leave no stone unturned. Their attention detail and quality is first class and it’s nice that they have the trust in us to deliver the same standard.

“The fact that we have been chosen to complete these mechanical installations on two more facilities, having worked on previous developments in Hessle and Hornsea, is testament to the quality of our work and the attention to detail that Paul Wright, our Mechanical Site Manager and his team have delivered on previous contracts.

“To be selected on key projects for a leading care provider, with the build led by a well-respected construction company like Hobson & Porter, reflects our trusted position in the market.”
