Rapid wins supply to Royal Star & Garter Homes

3rd April 2017

Rapid was delighted to have been appointed to supply wholesale electrical materials to the contractor building Royal Star & Garter Homes’ new 74-room care home in High Wycombe. The four-storey, high-specification home has been designed to create a welcoming and stimulating environment for disabled veterans and their partners. The new home will open its doors in Spring 2018 to people with specialist nursing needs.

Since 1916, Royal Star & Garter Homes has been providing specialist nursing and therapeutic care for disabled veterans. Just over a century ago, the charity’s Richmond Home opened its doors to care for servicemen injured in the First World War. The average age of those men was 22. Today, Royal Star & Garter Homes offers specialist care with the same respect and compassion to veterans whose average age is 88. A new generation of modern, state-of-the-art homes now fulfils the legacy of caring for the nation’s military family which began 100 years ago and Rapid Electrical is proud to be involved in its latest project.
