Derbyshire County Council in the UK has selected Mansell, a subsidiary of Balfour Beatty, to construct two residential community care centres.

Under the £16m contract, Mansell will construct community centres in Heanor and Darley Dale.

Mansell said the centres will provide residential and daycare activities for older people, including those with dementia, as well as community facilities.

Sustainability features of both the centres include a storm water attenuation system, rainwater harvesting, air source heat pumps and eco-cell passenger lifts.

The Darley Dale centre will feature a green roof with sedum matting, which will provide habitats for wildlife.

Derbyshire County Council deputy cabinet member for adult social care Paul Jones said work will now start on both developments, which will be purpose-built to meet the needs of older people and the community for years to come.

"The developments will be an excellent example of the benefits of partnership-working," Jones said.

The centre at Darley Dale is expected to open by the end of 2014, while the Heanor site is planned to open in January.

Balfour Beatty regional managing director for East Midlands Ian Taylor said, "We look forward to safely and efficiently delivering both projects for the community, and investing in local people and businesses in doing so."
