This Nursing home Project was under taken for a private Client. Kilpark Planning & Design was employed by the client at the feasibility study stage prior to planning. After considering a number of possible sites in Counties Wexford, Wicklow and Carlow. The chosen site is located in south Co. Carlow. The site itself was located on the outskirts of a small village. Under the Zoning plan for the village taken from the Carlow County Development plan, the site was originally zoned for residential. This information came to light following the feasability study for the site. Kilpark's first task was to apply to the council to contravene the development plan and have the zoning changed to commercial. After sucessfully getting the zoning changed on the site and pre-planning meetings with the head planner. We came up with a design which included 65 bedrooms and over 31,000 square feet. This was then submitted to the planning department of Carlow County Council. After a period of 6 to 7 weeks we recieved a request for further information which included few items, One of which was later alterations to the front elevation of the proposed nursing home. Following the submission of the revised drawings after a period of 4 to 5 weeks planning permission for the nursing home was achieved.
The drawings below are a copy of the Final drawings which planning permission was approved for.
The client also requested a physical model to be made for presentation purpose's which Kilpark Planning & Design could easily accomodate. See photo's of physical model below. The project now remains at planning permission stage to date.
