Tatton Court, Handforth

Following our work in Avenham, Collingwood asked us to consider the future of another tower block, Tatton Court in Handforth. Collingwood asked us to consider whether this block, which they had received in a stock transfer from Manchester City Council, might be suitable for refurbishment and conversion to provide specialist elderly accommodation.

We carried out an in depth study of existing local provision, demographic trends and did some extensive local market testing with groups such as Age Concern, and over 60’s groups and concluded that the scheme would be viable – leading to the successful adoption of the project.
