Broughton House Veteran Care Village, Salford

Specialist Centre to Support Veterans at Every Stage of Life
Broughton House
64 Bed Nursing Home, 34 Apartments
October 2020


Procured through a two-stage tender process Broughton House Veteran Care Village will provide the complete holistic services required by veterans and their families on one dedicated site in Greater Manchester, supporting every stage of life.

The works are being undertaken in two phases and comprise the demolition of the existing building and construction of a new 64-bedroom care home with communal facilities and 34 independent and assisted living apartments.

The facility will offer a special dementia wing, a military support hub featuring an advice centre, gym, treatment rooms, café, hair salon and meeting rooms.

Externally there will be a memorial park with a cenotaph, remembrance walls and landscaped gardens featuring an all-weather bowling green and a bandstand.

Key Challenges

The scheme is being constructed in a live retirement village and has been phased to allow residents to be moved into the new facility before demolition of the existing.

Access and egress from site is also challenging due to the projects location in the middle of a residential Jewish community.

Added Value

EWC were selected as the single contractor during RIBA Stage 3 and we developed the costs in coordination with the design, offering assistance and input to ensure an affordable scheme.

“As the north west’s only home delivering dedicated veteran care for over a century in recognition of the sacrifices of ex-servicemen and women, the need to expand our level of care is paramount to meet the growing and changing needs of veterans both now and in the future. We are immensely grateful for the support shown for the scheme to date and look forward to working with the Greater Manchester public, and all relevant parties, to bring our vision to fruition, and together we hope to serve veterans for the next 100 years.”
