Construction has commenced on Pitfodels Wood, a new 65-bed care home in Scotland, with a sod-cutting ceremony held in April 2024.  

Clark Contracts is handling the construction of the facility, while elderly care provider Meallmore is developing it. 

Located on North Deeside Road adjacent to The Marcliffe Hotel, the care home will provide personalised care for elderly individuals, including those with dementia and related conditions. 

Clark Contracts director Michael Scanlan said: “We are excited to be working with Meallmore to deliver this major new development, which will provide first class facilities for residents.  

“We look forward to working with Meallmore, the design team, and wider community as we deliver the project.” 

The four-storey L shaped building set within landscaped gardens is claimed to have been designed to maximise views of the surrounding mature woodland and the Deeside Valley.

It will offer residents communal balconies within shared spaces alongside private balconies in select bedrooms.  

The care home will also include a cinema, café, private dining room, and beauty salon. 

Meallmore property director Michael Gillespie said: “Set in beautiful grounds and using impressive architectural attributes, Pitfodels Wood is going to be a stunning place to live. It will provide the highest quality facilities for our residents, offering personalised care to meet personal needs, empowering individuals to maintain their desired levels of independence. 

“The new specialised home will also offer a range of job prospects, boosting employment in the neighbouring communities.” 

Pitfodels Wood is further expected to create approximately 80 full-time equivalent jobs, ranging from nursing and care assistant roles to hotel services staff, administrative positions, and more. 

This comes after Clark Contracts was appointed by the Scottish Procurement Alliance for the £100m Refurbishment and Modernisation Framework in March 2024.
