Castle Street, Dover

Location: Dover

Client: Dover District Council

Value: £1m

This scheme on the corner of Castle Street in Dover provides 8 flats for affordable rent.

Castle Street was awarded to us after successful completion of a small 3 unit scheme for Dover District Council in Elvingdon – the first council houses to be built in the area for many years.
The same team was employed to work on the Castle Street project and deliver the units via a timber frame solution.
The project was the first redevelopment in the regeneration of the St James Street project which will see new retail, restaurants and further housing delivered for the community of Dover.
The site is located in a listed area with buildings of character. The new flats were designed to fit in with the local environment and include detailed cornices, box gutters and pediments.
We worked closely with the Council throughout, including providing informative hoarding with information on the St James Street regeneration, historic and artwork from students at Astor School for Girls.
