Hale End Court

Last week saw the grand opening of ‘Hale End Court’, our new build Independent Living and Extra Care project for Woking Council.

HNW Architects designed the new specialist residential facility on a brownfield site on Old Woking High Street, from inception through to completion. Procured through the Southern Construction Framework and constructed by Willmott Dixon, the sustainable four-storey design incorporates 48no. one and two-bed flats with their own fully equipped kitchen, along with combined communal, administrative and care facilities. The brief was to ensure that the site looked and felt homely, comfortable and of a high quality – and not institutional in nature.

The facility is managed yet allows residents to enjoy living independently whilst also being supported when needed. In addition to the internal facilities provided, Hale End Court also offers a landscaped outdoor courtyard to provide additional space for residents to socialise and landscaped rooftop terrace.

Constructed from CLT (cross laminated timber), achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating and Secured By Design status, the project is a highly sustainable response to meet the local Housing need in and around Woking.
