Cambridge Royal Military Hospital to be converted into housing
- November 25, 2019

The property development company Weston Homes has commenced its most recent project to convert the Cambridge Royal Military Hospital, an Edwardian building in Aldershot, into 140 private-sale, premium homes.

The construction company VKE Contractors Limited have been appointed to the Cambridge Royal Military Hospital redevelopment project by Weston Homes at a cost of £60M and will last approximately three years upon its commencement in the autumn of 2020.

In terms of roles during the project, Weston Logistics will be responsible for organising the supply chain while Stansted Environment Services will provide health and safety consultancy and Adam Urbanism will be the architecture firm responsible for devising the masterplan.

Specifically, development will entail the conversion of the main hospital building into 74 homes, including both houses and apartments, as well as the establishment of commercial and community facilities, grand communal foyers, and spaces.

Furthermore, various other hospital buildings will be converted into various apartments of varying capacity, including two and three-bedroom apartments, while other modern apartments and houses will be built from scratch.

Surrounding the restored heritage buildings, semi-private gardens, courtyards, open lawns, and trees will be landscaped to provide the new residents with a beautiful setting while, between the building’s pavilion wings landscapers will deliver more private gardens and will likewise establish parking for residents.

The Chairman and Chief Executive of Weston Homes, Bob Weston stated: “Weston Homes has started construction work on the conversion of the Cambridge Military Hospital into a new residential address for Aldershot. The three year conversion project will bring a new lease of life to these heritage buildings. We will transform them into modern homes layered with the rich history and unique character of this historic site.”

The town of Aldershot is a fairly proximate commuter settlement that is 33 miles to the South-West of London.
