Johnstone's Chocolate project hits the sweet spot!


Johnstones Trade Paint

Former Terry’s Chocolate factory in York has been transformed into a spectacular Chocolate Works Care Village with the help of Johnstone’s Trade’s high performance products.

Opened in 2017, the Chocolate Works Care Village was awarded the Refurbishment Project of the Year in the Healthcare Estates Awards with the help of Johnstone’s Trade.

The £7 million renovation was part of a wider multi-million pound expansion programme by Springfield Healthcare to establish five new care villages and a care centre for working age adults. Previously, the former home of world-renowned Terry’s Chocolate factory, the vast double height glazed atrium has been preserved and transformed into a unique ‘marketplace’ setting for the residents and visitors, complete with café, restaurant, spa, hairdresser, gym and even its own pub The Duke of York!

The aim of the programme was to set a new benchmark for how care environments are designed and built. The landmark building is Grade II listed and, after a number of years lying unused and unloved was brought back to life through the extraordinary vision of Springfield Healthcare CEO Graeme Lee and his extensive team of architects (Norr), builders (Simpsons of York) and restoration specialists. The building now provides 82 individually designed care suites and eight outstanding apartments that staff and visitors can utilise and enjoy.
