Hamilton Ct & Abercorn House, Camberley

A stunning close-care scheme of 12 apartments and a 90-bed care home.

In line with our commitment to the construction of high quality care home projects, Highwood was contracted to build a stunning close-care scheme of apartments and prestigious care home on a site in Camberley in Surrey.

The build contract was negotiated directly with Welltower and included the completion of a partially constructed 90-bed care home and 12 assisted living apartment after the initial contractor had gone out of business. Following a full survey and assessment of the condition of the existing construction, a full scope of remedial works were agreed and construction contract commenced early in 2017. The project was completed in October 2017 and with Gracewell Health Care taking occupation in November 2017.

Highwood re-appointed the consultant team and some of the original supply chain who had already worked on the scheme to successfully deliver a quality home that met the high standards previously delivered on other Gracewell schemes.

The home, Abercorn House, was traditionally constructed over five floors on a sloping site that incorporated basement construction on the lower ground floor. The design included extensive terraces into the structure, with high specification landscaping works and a highways agreement for the site entrance and road improvement works to the exterior. 

It is a full, en-suite accommodation facility with exemplary communal facilities that include beautiful living rooms and dining rooms and even a rejuvenating hydrotherapy pool for residents’ exclusive use.


Hamilton Court is two-storey apartment building that sits on the existing Hamilton Court site and is now serviced via the new Abercorn House scheme.
