The renovation of Latimer Lodge, Yeovil

Monthly progress photos from our refurbishment works at Latimer Lodge between April and November 2016 - the first phase of our luxury development on Preston Road.


October 2016 - Latimer Lodge reaches practical completion! All interiors are completed, Building Control sign-off is achieved and we now await our inspection visit from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is early November before we can open our doors for business. We'll be announcing details of our Wednesday open days shortly.


15/09/16 - with works now nearing their final couple of weeks we're putting the finishing touches to Latimer Lodge. Internal/external signage has been installed, rooms have been wallpapered and carpeted, and our luxury furniture and fittings have started to arrive. All works are scheduled to complete at the end of September. Watch this space!


29/07/16 - external painting works are progressing and ground floor communal areas, including reception, are now plastered and taking their final form. En-suite bathroom tiling is almost complete and sanitaryware being plumbed in.


July 2016 - with remodeling works complete and structural alterations approved by local building control officer, our team has moved on to the painting and decorating phase of the project, with tiling of en-suites now well underway and the first coat of paint for all 1st floor care studios. Visitors can now truly get a feel for the final look and feel of the care community.


June 2016 - remodeling works included the removal of walls to create new care studios and en-suite areas as well as the creation of a considerably more open and welcoming reception area (compare with Image 1 in April photo-gallery). Jet washing of the external elevations and roof tiling has significantly rejuvenated the property, as has the on-site repair and replacement of sash windows to the front facade.


April/May 2016 - site clearance works at Latimer Lodge. The walking frames shown (image 4) were shipped overseas by an international charity, other items have been recycled whenever possible.
