A topping out ceremony has been held to celebrate R G Carter reaching a pivotal stage of construction of Foxburrow Grange, a dementia care home for Outlook Care in Colchester.
Guests including local councillors and representatives from the Firm watched on as David Thomas, chairman of Outlook Care, topped out the building.
Speaking of the event, Mr Thomas said: “It is an impressive building and an exciting project”.
The director of operations at Outlook Care, Anne Cooper, added: “This new home represents a step into the future, bringing the latest developments in dementia and nursing care to Colchester”.
Now that the building is watertight, work will begin on the internal finishes, with the whole project due to complete in April 2013.
