We have just completed the construction of 4no. bespoke four bedroom respite lodges for children and adults with autism for the North East Autism Society at New Warlands Farm, Holmside, County Durham. The project included timber frame buildings installed on raft foundations and included timber cladding and render externally together with high performance insulation, windows and doors. Internally the lodges are fitted out with modern fittings and fixtures with kitchen, master bathroom and ensuite facilities with the autistic residents in mind so that they can have home from home breaks in safe surroundings.
The lodges are set within 77 acres of secluded farmland and countryside within County Durham.
Extensive drainage and external works were constructed to provide access to the four lodges and new playing areas and park areas were formed as part of the works.
