Midas celebrates topping out at Friary Meadow Retirement Village
Builders and developers have celebrated reaching the highest point in the construction of an impressive new retirement village which is rapidly taking shape at Titchfield, in Hampshire.
Midas Construction, part of the Midas Group, is delivering the 86-home Friary Meadow Retirement Village on land once owned by Titchfield Abbey and close to the Great Barn.
The Midas Construction team celebrated reaching the milestone with a topping out ceremony on site attended by client representatives, Dr Stephen Ladyman of Oak Retirement and Simon Casey of Frogmore Property.
Building work on the stunning new state-of-the-art retirement community began in May last year and the first residents to live in the village are due to start moving into properties by the end of 2018.
Friary Meadow is set within beautiful landscape gardens, just two miles from the M27 and minutes from the picturesque village of Titchfield.
Once complete, the £20 million complex will boast a restaurant, café, cinema room, meeting rooms and a choice of high-quality two or three-bed properties – all with access to flexible on-site services, should they be required.
Rob Whitham, Business Development Director at Midas Construction, said: “We were so pleased to mark such an important milestone in the build at Friary Meadow and we are certainly looking forward to the next stage in construction.
“With roofs now complete to the first dozen buildings, you can really see the village start to take shape and we are seeing the transformation of the space into somewhere that can be really enjoyed by future residents.”
Dr Stephen Ladyman, Director of Oak Retirement, said: “It’s thrilling to see how the development is proceeding. The topping out ceremony is a big landmark and I can’t wait for the first show property to be ready in April.”
