Pochin’s kicks off £2m project for HB Villages

Pochin’s has continued its long-standing relationship with supported living property developer, HB Villages, with the announcement of a new £2m project in Stoke-on-Trent.

Pochin’s, who are currently building a similar supported living facility for HB Villages in Sandbach, will be responsible for the delivery of a new development on Chetwynd Street. The purpose-built development will provide 12,500 sq ft of assisted care and residential space for vulnerable members of the local community.

Jim Nicholson, CEO of Pochin’s Ltd, commented: “As a family business that has been working in the North West and Staffordshire region for over 80 years, we highly value the role our projects play in the local community. With that in mind, we’re extremely proud of the trusted partnership we’ve developed with HB Villages and the positive support this new state-of-the-art facility will provide to families for years to come.”

With work beginning on site this week, Pochin’s are set to hand over the keys to the project in September, providing 18 apartments across three buildings.

Jonny Wrigley, Managing Director of HB Villages, added: “Assisted living has become a vital community asset and one that is allowing vulnerable adults to live safely and independently across the UK. This is a fantastic development for Stoke-on-Trent and we’re proud to be partnering with Pochin’s once more to ensure a high quality delivery.”

Structural engineers, Bell Munro, and Calderpeel Architects are also involved in the project.
