What we did

JG&JR Langridge were successful with tendering for this project which was to be jointly funded by two local authorities.

The works included installing an underfloor heating system, a host of specialist adaptations equipment, reconfiguration of some existing internal

What our client thinks

I worked with Lee Pollard from Langridges and the architect, Grant Officer and family in a collaborative approach to get the best environmental solution for a young boy and his carers that we could within space and financial constraints.

The outcome was positive and provides a homely bedroom, study area and bathroom that is enjoyed by both the young boy and his carers and that makes use of specialist equipment and space to make caring tasks safer, easier and quicker.
