Later Living

The number of people aged over 65 in the UK will double in the next 15 years. We provide a full range of multi-disciplinary engineering services for later living developers to meet the demands of this fast-growing market.

Hydrock's engineering designs enable developers to focus on active, sociable and high quality living standards in the right location.

Turning your project into reality

We are well versed in delivering viability to our clients’ sites. We are experts at solving those engineering problems that are blocking your later living development from becoming a reality.

The contribution of engineering feasibility and design during the early masterplanning and optioneering stages of a project is crucial to maximising land value and the best opportunity of achieving the planning permission you are looking for.

Equally, to help you secure planning we can deliver accessibility audits/GIS visualisation of access to key local facilities and services including health, leisure, shopping and of course to public transport.

We can assess parking, dealing with local policy requirements, situational issues such as location and on-street parking and practical operational needs including visitor parking allocation.

We can also deliver walking audits. Given the typically lower levels of car ownership and usage in such developments and with many local authorities emphasising the need to assess the wider road network around a site for accessibility by pedestrians, this can be a key element in planning considerations.

Creating compliant schemes

We ensure that your scheme, whether a new build development or the refurbishment of an existing scheme, will meet the new Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulations, whether you are looking to develop a new scheme or refurbish an existing one, we can ensure your development project is compliant.

A space that delivers

Whether it’s retirement living, assisted living or a care home, it’s about providing an environment that offers a sense of home and belonging.

The design and performance of the building itself is paramount to delivering this experience. And that’s where we come in.

Designed for wellbeing

We provide the engineering that fosters humancentric design. We maximise connections to the outside and design buildings that are simple to use and that consume next to no energy.

As design engineers, it’s our job to take care of the site, structure and efficiency of your facility. We believe there are four key areas that can be influenced to create excellence:

  • Energy efficiency: taking control of your energy usage
  • Simple automated systems: reducing cost and removing complexity
  • Wellbeing and comfort: putting health at the forefront of design
  • Fully integrated design: efficiency during design and construction.
