New £6.1m state-of-the-art dementia unit in Kelso

3b Construction are proud to have delivered a New £6.1m state-of-the-art dementia unit in Kelso
The new specialist dementia unit, Murray House, has officially opened in Kelso thanks to a £4 million fundraising campaign and a £2.1m finance package from Royal Bank of Scotland.

3b Construction worked closely with Aitken Turnbull Architects, Wardell Armstrong Structural Engineers and Morham and Brotchie Quantity Surveyors to complete this 18-bed state-of-the-art facility situated on land adjacent to Queen’s House care home, which owns and operates the purpose-built unit.

It is to be followed by the completion of a further 9-bed unit, Evanthea House, which will be ready for occupation in the spring of 2019.

Both Murray House and Evanthea House will be centres of excellence for people living with dementia in the Scottish borders and will create 60 new jobs for Kelso and the surrounding community.
