NorseCare Managing Director, Karen Knight and board member Colleen Walker joined architects from Barron and Smith and the building team from R G Carter to celebrate the topping out ceremony at the new Lydia Eva Court care home in Gorleston.
The locally brewed ale used to mark the occasion was donated by Lacons Ales, which has been a part of Gorleston and Great Yarmouth’s community since 1760.
The home has been built in line with the latest dementia research including assistive technology to offer better support to less mobile residents.
The new home is being named Lydia Eva Court after the UK’s last surviving steam drifter which was based in Great Yarmouth.
The site was awarded a Performance Beyond Compliance certificate from the Considerate Constructor Scheme and is due for completion in March.
