In order to keep the risk of Covid19 controlled, the works have been carried out in phases with each of the four 'wings' in the home being decanted before the Seddon team started works; a full healthcare clean is carried out before the wing is handed back two weeks later.

Work at Perth House is due to complete in February 2021.
