Howbury House, Malvern
Worcestershire County Council centre for older people
Owned and managed by Worcestershire County Council, Howbury House, Malvern, is a facility and resource centre for older people.
Dove Construction was awarded the £220,000 contract for the refurbishment of the Dementia Unit and to build a new 18m2 Sun lounge and a 'Drop off point'.
The specialist 256m2 Dementia Unit is part of the larger facility and comprises a lobby, dining room, store, WCs, bathrooms and ten bedrooms.
Dove Construction worked closely with the County Council and their Architects to deliver a much improved environment in which to care for the older residents of Worcestershire.
In addition to the building skills required, Dove Construction demonstrated sensitivity to the continued working of the unit and the needs of the elderly residents and their visitors. The project was delivered to budget and completed on time.
