Bramble Court, Brampton - completed October 2016 - a new extra care housing scheme in Brampton

Impact Housing has complated a new Extra Care Housing scheme in Brampton which will provide 38 self- contained apartments on part of the site of the Irthing Centre in Brampton.

The development of 1 and 2 bedroomed apartments offers purpose designed accommodation to meet a very wide range of physical needs, incorporating assistive technology to enable residents to live independently. There is also be a care team on site who will provide support as and when residents need it.

As well as a comprehensive range of facilities within the scheme, there are additional interests available to the residents in partnership with the Community Centre. Residents will be able to meet friends in the café or expand their skills and hobbies through all of the activities already provided on site. The landscape design incorporates different zones but with interlinking paths for easy access.

The new scheme also features a bio mass boiler which produces the domestic heating, however each resident can still control their own heating to their specific needs, whilst taking advantage of this environmentally friendly technology.

The total cost of the scheme was £5.1 million with £1,216,000 grant from the Homes and Communities Agency, £227,000 from Impact Housing Association and £800,000 from Cumbria County Council.  

The contractor was Thomas Armstrong. 

The architect was Unwin Jones Partnership. 

This extra care scheme at Brampton has a 40KW Bio-Mass boiler that supplies heating and hot water for our residents. A Bio-Mass boiler of this size is a first for Impact. The boiler uses wood pellets as fuel which it burns to provide the heat to produce the hot water. As well as being sustainable the boiler attracts revenue based on how much heat it produces that will go to the operation costs of the boiler.
