CHAP Group Awarded Care Home Contract

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019


CHAP Group has been awarded a £4 million contract in Fortrose by independent care home provider, Parklands.  Construction will begin on a new 40 bed care home for the Black Isle next month.

CHAP are pleased to again be working with Parklands having recently completed construction of a £4.5 million care home in Grantown on Spey on their behalf.

Joint managing director Douglas Thomson said: “CHAP Group are delighted to continue the successful relationship with Parklands. CHAP have a proud history of delivering high quality projects and this project for Parklands marks an important stage for CHAP, continuing our expansion of operations across Moray and Highland with five sites currently live across the region.”

The Fortrose facility will be Parklands’ ninth care home and will open in spring 2020, creating 50 full time equivalent jobs.

Ron Taylor, managing director of Parklands said: “We are delighted to be working with CHAP once again. Our new Grantown care home is a superb addition to the group and residents are very much enjoying their new home. We look forward to working with CHAP to deliver an equally impressive care home for Fortrose.

“This will be our ninth care home and a further sign of our continued investment in the Highlands. It is also an important investment for the Black Isle, not only in terms of the economic benefits it will generate, but because of the much needed care services it will provide for the area, at a time when the elderly population in the Highlands is growing.”

The new care home has been designed by Inverness architects CRGP.

Bryan McFadzean, director of CRGP, added: “We are delighted to be working with Parklands on such an important development for the Black Isle. We have worked closely with Parklands and The Highland Council to design a building which is equipped to provide 21st century care but is nevertheless sensitive to its rural setting near an historic conservation area. It is an exciting, ambitious project and one we are proud to support.”
