Achvarasdal House is a Residential Old People’s Home run by the Church of Scotland.
In March 2007 GMR Henderson were awarded the contract to add an Extension to the existing building as well as to carry out major Alterations and Refurbishment to the existing building.
Work commenced on this project in May 2007 and was completed in August 2008.
The completion of the new Extension resulted in accommodation being available for twenty nine residents.
Work carried out during the Alterations and Refurbishment included installing en-suite facilities to all 25 Bedrooms, complete refurbishment and refitting of kitchen and larder, formation of new offices and day rooms, and new sprinkler system.
This work was carried out in an efficient and sensitive manner, in four phases, to allow for minimum disruption and to enable the residents to remain accommodated within the existing building while the works were being carried out.
