Castle Street Dover

Kingspan TEK®’s high performance capabilities and impressive air tightness was the fabric of their choice on this build. Also the speed of build was a huge factor allowing local people to move into their new homes far quicker than a traditionally built development.

The Project

High performance fabric leading to lower fuel bills was a major driver in this development also the speed of build was critical.

The Challenge

Jenner Contractors were appointed to construct a 2 & 3 storey building providing 8 affordable rent flats for people over the age of 50. The flats were built in an area where the surrounding buildings were listed so the flats were designed to fit in with local housing.

Many of the sites were at the end of roads no larger than 3 meters wide. The sites were in existing residential developments and surrounded by occupied omes. Craneage, delivery and waste removal were a challenge. However, by working with our accredited construction partners, these challenges were overcome and the new homes were built with minimal disruption to the local community.

Self building is one of the most exciting events in a lifetime, but it requires lots of decisions. What's within the walls is just as important as how they look on the outside.
