St Claire's, 38 - 40 Church Crescent

St Albans

Refurbishment of a former registered care home brought much-needed emergency accommodation for up to 10 people facing homelessness.

  • Type: Care & supported housing
  • Stage: Complete
  • Studio Flat
  • Development Information

    After the registered care home formerly occupying St Claire's fell vacant, Hightown worked in partnership with St Albans City & District Council to obtain planning permission to convert the property into a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) to address the district's pressing need for temporary accommodation for homeless people.

    Following a renovation project undertaken by lead contract Borras Construction, St Claire's opened in October 2017.

    The new building included 10 self-contained, fully-furnished properties for single people plus staff office.
