Great news for Harmonia Village, Dover
Date: February 2020
We are delighted that the Harmonia Village in Dover has been shortlisted for two awards so far this year; ‘Construction Project of the Year’ at this year’s Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce Business Awards and also within the Heathcare category for the RICS Social Impact Awards 2020.
Harmonia is a unique development that has regenerated redundant hospital properties, on the site to the rear of the Buckland Hospital, to create a bespoke new nursing village for people living with dementia. This is the first village of its kind in the UK to be created for the sole purpose of supporting and caring for those living with this debilitating disease. The project was designed by HMY Architects and delivered by Jenner on behalf of our client East Kent Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, as part of the wider ‘Community Areas of Sustainable Care and Dementia Excellence in Europe’ (CASCADE) project that aims to keep people living with dementia integrated within their local communities for longer and to improve overall wellbeing and quality of life.
The project was successfully led by Site Manager Kirk Longman who achieved final Considerate Constructor scores of 45 out of 50, which was the highest score across the whole of the South East and will be taken forward for National consideration.
Well done Kirk and the team.
