Contract Award - RBLI Centenary Village Phase 2A, Aylesford
We are delighted to have been awarded an exciting new contract to deliver Phase 2A of the Royal British Legion Industries’ (RBLI) Centenary Village in Aylesford.
First formed in 1919 to provide support to sick and wounded soldiers returning from the First World War, the RBLI wanted to ensure that as they drew closer to celebrating their milestone centenary year, they had the facilities in place to support veterans and their families for the next 100 years.
The Centenary Village is a result of the RBLI’s vision which began as far back as 2015 when they launched their new strategy ‘Improving Lives Every Day’. With Phase 1 successfully completed and open, we are very happy to commence work on Phase 2 this month.
Working closely with the RBLI, Canterbury based architects Clague have created a design for the Centenary Village in response to a very clear and focused brief: ‘create the best for our veterans and lay the foundations for the second century of RBLI’s important work’.
With work due to commence shortly, Phase 2A of this development involves the delivery of 40 housing units, comprising of a mix of 4 family homes, 12 apartments and 24 fully supported living units.
When complete, the Centenary Village will offer excellent wrap around care, social facilities and services to help people in crisis turn their lives around completely.
