Carlauren Developments Ltd is the property development and design/build consultant for Corporate Land Solutions, the parent company of The Care Home Group.
Carlauren’s development team includes experienced architectural designers, interior designers, buyers, QS, project managers and furniture manufacturers with a proven track record in the residential and care sectors, as well as a retained sub-contractor workforce of skilled construction tradesmen.
How we work
Typically, Carlauren's developments are traditional Victorian period properties that have retained many of their original features and generous proportions, and have operated as care facilities for many years.
With a plentiful supply of dilapidated stock in the market at present properties are acquired vacant. Carlauren undertakes extensive survey and feasibility work to ensure each property is of sound overall construction and suitable for redevelopment and internal remodeling, typically offering 20+ en-suite care studios of generous proportions.
Properties are acquired in areas where market research and demographic data shows a high retired, affluent population.
Using an experienced team of in-house, consulting and sub-contractor staff Carlauren then renovates the property to a 5-star luxury standard - typically within a six month timescale - before handing it over to The Care Home Group's CQC-registered care business, Caring Communities.
At all times, the needs of our future residents are paramount and we engage with a wide range of experts from both within our own care team and external organisations, to ensure that our properties are fit for purpose, now and in the future. This includes designing for residents with early or later stage dementia and other illnesses.
The refurbishment of well-built and vacant existing properties enables Carlauren to get each property back on an operational footing and fee-generating in a fraction of the time of a new build development, usually without lengthy planning applications. Where appropriate and commercially viable, additional new build facilities may be developed at the location (subject to planning approval), usually as a further phase of the development once operational.
