Audley build and manage a number of award-winning, luxury retirement villages in a variety of locations across England. Their properties are made up of high-quality cottages and apartments, with a central ‘hub’ where the communal facilities are located.

Our Role

These facilities include a gym, swimming pool, salon, restaurant, bar and library. In many cases this central hub is accommodated within an historic, often listed, building.

The expertise we provide to Audley covers a broad spectrum of our services; mechanical, electrical, public health and lift services designs, energy strategies, surveys and facility services audits. We also act as Audley’s representative, monitoring the contractor’s works and witnessing / commissioning on site.

The Outcome

We endeavour to include low energy solutions wherever possible in these schemes. For example, we utilised ground-source heat pumps in Inglewood, photovoltaic panels in St Elphin’s, combined heat and power (CHP) in St George’s and high-efficiency boilers in Binswood. Every one of our schemes has efficient LED lighting throughout, and in three locations we specified heat recovery systems.
