Being admitted to a hospital, care home or support facility can be a frightening, confusing experience and may cause agitation, disorientation and distress. Anxiety is also increased due to unfamiliar surroundings.
At GM Building and Property Services we understand that choosing a theme everyone will understand is not only important but challenging. Our Project Managers will visit your organisation, capture your brief and design and build (if required) an innovative and bespoke environment suitable for patients with dementia, intermediate or palliative care needs.
Our Project Managers have been fully trained by the Kings Fund and hold between them 47 years’ experience of working within the NHS and 35 years of project management experience. The
construction manager has 25 years’ experience in all aspects of construction and property services.
Extensive research has been undertaken to achieve the best possible environment for these patients and we are committed to refining the way vulnerable adults are cared for in making their stay in hospitals and community facilities as stress free as possible.
To work and engage with you and your clients to reduce the disorientation and frustration of patients, by creating and providing them with a more homely and welcoming experience when they are brought into an unfamiliar environment.

Under regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008, a loft conversion for your home is now considered to be ‘permitted development’, not requiring an application for planning permission. Consequently, loft conversions are an ideal and cost-effective way to increase the living area of your house.
Patios, driveways and garden landscaping can be seen in our outdoor and garden portfolio. We have transformed many properties with our attention to detail and good eye for design. With keen prices on materials like fencing panels, slabs, block paving and gravel, we bring achievable prices to otherwise expensive projects.
Even small spaces can look good with the right materials and clean lines.
A nice driveway adds value and instant ‘kerb appeal’ to your property. In a similar way, continuing the finish to the rear and sides of the property make it more usable and welcoming. Using tarmac, block paving, slabs, bricks, gravel or any combination of these, we can create an individual driveway and side passage to suit your budget and taste.
When considering “the room that sells your house”, it goes without saying that a nice kitchen is money well spent. We can supply units, worktops (granite or composite), appliances, lighting and flooring and we’ll work with you to complete your project in good time.
