This new-build development for the Derbyshire County Council provides a residential care facility with 89 apartments, a restaurant and sports facilities. The overall development is geared towards providing integrated residential and care facilities for the local community.

Cundall provided building services and sustainable design solutions. A major issue was the requirement to provide separate mechanical and electrical installations for each occupier. Renewable energy technologies were included in the design through the implementation of solar water collectors for the residential care facility, a gas fired combined heat and power (CHP) solution for the extra care village, and passive measures to minimise energy usage.
