Hallmark Care Homes, one of the leading care home providers has taken the bold step to build its own care homes.
Having been at the forefront of design in the care home sector, winning eight Pinders Design awards in the last 11 years, Hallmark has now created a construction company called Savista Developments.
This new company will source land, obtain planning permission and build and fit out Hallmark Care Homes’ next generation of care homes into the next decade.
The Essex-based company will be run by Avnish Goyal as Managing Director, running alongside his role as Chair of Hallmark Care Homes.
Over 120 guests recently attended Savista’s official launch event at the Looking Glass Cocktail Club in London where Avnish revealed their future plans and ideology.
Avnish Goyal said: “It makes great sense to utilise our inhouse skills to build a new brand in care sector development.”
“We will continue to build Hallmark Care Homes’ new homes, and hopefully look to work for other operators to deliver their schemes, using our extensive experience in design and construction. We already have a number of projects in the pipeline and we are excited to be expanding and controlling the delivery of outstanding environments for Hallmark Care Homes’ residents.”
Construction Director at Savista Developments, James Rowntree said: “The team at Savista are looking forward to providing outstanding care homes for Hallmark, and using the knowledge gained over the years, we hope to build on the reputation Hallmark have as an award-winning operator.”
Savista’s first project is Henley Manor Care Home, a luxury 80 bed, Hallmark care home, in Oxfordshire which is scheduled to open in December 2019.
Also under construction is Hallmark’s first care village scheme in Hutton, Essex where Savista are building a 77 bed care home alongside a 55 apartment assisted living scheme.
Forthcoming site starts in the next few months are new care homes in Angmering, Eastbourne, Bath, Camberley, Brentwood and Buckinghamshire.
