Northstar was originally established in 2007 by Danny Sharpe and Ian Holmes as a specialist care home design and development company. Since that time we have worked exclusively in the elderly care sector, having designed and built over 2,500 care homes beds right across the UK.
Danny takes the lead on the planning and design of new opportunities: working with clients from the outset of a project to ensure that their aspirations are achieved.
Setting realistic targets in the face of the increasing confines of the planning and legal system, Danny helps to maximize the potential of a site without losing sight of the overall goal.
Ian manages the Technical Design / Delivery Team and the entire Construction process from inception to completion acting as the ‘Project Manager and Client’s Representative / Clients Agent’.
Ian works closely with clients from the outset of a project to ensure that their requirements and aspirations are realised and that the building is designed and constructed in accordance with relevant legislation and CQC commissioning standards whilst maintaining impeccable standards.
