The Forge Children's Care Home, Nuneaton
We are very proud to be working on this project with IDP & Stepnell. We were tasked with providing Civils and Structural design services for this new purpose-built Children’s Care Home in Nuneaton. The project has been a design challenge due to the difficult ground conditions from the presence of coal as well as the difficulties associated with Covid. The Forge will provide short-term residential care & recovery for children with emotional & behavioural disorders or early childhood trauma.
The four stand-alone residential care buildings are constructed from SIPS then clad in timber and zinc are nestled within a beautiful landscaped garden setting, and seek to provide a safe, nurturing & creative environment for the children.
When finished, the project will create big play spaces, art, quiet, sensory and nature areas, this is a nurturing environment where children can explore and develop their own interests and hobbies.
