Property development firm SEP Properties and leading care provider Radis Community Care have joined forces to turn former Walsall pub into a state of the art supported living service.

Consisting of 12 self-contained apartments, communal areas and a manager’s office, the building that was once a pub named The Bowman on Myatt Avenue, will be renamed Bowman Court – in a nod to its history within the local community.

SEP Properties is a property investor and developer, and the firm is now in the final stages of the development with a grand opening expected to happen in the summer.

With the scaffolding due to come down shortly, attention will be turned to the inside of the supported living accommodation.

Built with assisted technology at the forefront of the design, Bowman Court will be kitted out with top-quality 360 degree CCTV and access control.

Prioritising safety, security and accessibility for all, the supported living service will include a 24/7 warden call system and the building will allow for keyless entry in the form of fobs.

Managed by Inclusion Housing, each apartment will be made up of a fully fitted kitchen, bedroom, living space and a bathroom as well as being supplied with underfloor heating.

Gavin Dixon, Head of Supported Living Services at Radis Community Care expressed his delight at the upcoming opening of Bowman Court.

He said, “Myself and the entire team at Radis are absolutely thrilled to have a supported living service opening in Walsall.

“This location is perfect and we’re really happy to be able to provide a service that will benefit the community and their families in a plethora of ways.”

Gavin also said, “We’re incredibly proud to have teamed up with SEP Properties to create a first-class facility for individuals with various care needs. It’s fantastic to support other local businesses and to have created such a community-focused facility together is an honour.”

SEP Properties have spent many years working on both residential and commercial blocks, however this is the firm’s very first project of this type.

Palminder Singh, Director at SEP Properties discussed the project thus far.

He said, “As a local business, we’re keen to work on projects that will benefit the community and this does exactly that.

“We’ve worked closely with Radis Community Care to ensure the bespoke development is suitable for the individuals who will call it home. And we have done so by implementing first-class assisted technology to the supported living service.”

Whilst this is the firm’s first construction of this type, Palminder explains that the SEP Properties is thrilled to be able to give back to the community. He went on to say:

“We’re keen to continue in this line of work, teaming up with fellow local businesses, supporting the community whilst promoting and providing further jobs. We have a number of projects in the pipeline for the next two years that will allow us to do just that.”

Bowman Court is expected to welcome residents and clients, allowing them to move in before the summer.
