Bison Manufacturing secures new retirement village contract

Bison Manufacturing’s market-leading precast concrete products have been chosen for installation at the new £40million Lynwood Retirement Village in Sunninghill, Berkshire.

Working for main contractor Willmott Dixon, Bison will deliver 6,000m2 Hollowcore flooring units and 41 flights of precast staircases, manufactured at its Swadlincote facility for installation across the 20 acre development.

The state-of-the-art site will feature 174 luxury retirement apartments and cottages together with a 93-bed residential care centre and several different amenities – all carefully planned to create a village atmosphere.

Prince Michael of Kent recently laid the foundation stone for the new BEN Motor & Allied Trades Benevolent Fund owned retirement village, which will replace the existing care centre on Rise Road.

Neil Jeffries, Construction Manager at Willmott Dixon, said:

“The scale of the Sunninghill project is such that we need to work with companies that not only supply high quality products in large volumes to meet our timescales, but can also offer technical advice and help to maximise our budgets.

“Bison’s ability to manufacture its precast products off-site removes the need for lengthy and costly wet trades on site, and ensures of the units are created under factory conditions to exact specifications.”

The entire development is set for completion in July 2016.

Bison has a wealth of expertise delivering high quality concrete for many care home development projects across the UK.
