Receive a fantastic commercial facility from the trained team at Dove Construction. Normally understood to be buildings that combine office space with storage, warehousing, or a light engineering facility, our team provide a commercial structure that’s tailored to your needs. We understand that businesses requiring commercial property need to be open to members of the public, whether via appointment or through a drop-in system. In that regard, we create reception and exhibition areas that create a sense of ease among customers.
Due to our expertise in the industry, we have worked on a range of commercial projects across the UK. View our past projects below, and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions.
Owned and managed by Worcestershire County Council, Howbury House, in 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 it comprises of a lobby, dining room, store, W/C, bathroom facilities, 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 it was completed on time.
The architectural design and planning permission had already been completed for this project, when we won the build contract through the recommendation of a well-respected, local commercial agent.
Dove Construction completed the design and fitting of the facility to the client's own specifications. The design of the MOT inspection pits needed assistance from Dove Construction before they completed the build and the necessary rolling roads.
The steel frame was manufactured locally and then insulated with a specialist Kingspan composite cladding to fully comply with all current building regulations. The final building is a modern, efficient vehicle servicing and MOT centre. It comprises of an office/reception area, three servicing bays, and an MOT station bay.

"Buying the new building was the biggest investment that we have ever made but dealing with Dove Construction made the whole process a lot less daunting thanks to their personal guidance and expertise. Their willingness to take over the negotiations with third parties and the local authorities left us free to get on with running our business. It is a superb new building."
As a design and build project, this building comprised of main factory area, second-storey offices, and an entrance foyer. It was created for engineering specialists Altex, who are a leading sub-contract manufacture of sheet metal fabrication.
The high-build quality and low maintenance costs of the Astron system resulted in the perfect fit for Altex. They had experience with the system in previous properties, so they actively sought this option for their own, bespoke building.
Designed to simplify the addition of future extensions, the Astron Building System was adapted to include simple, cost-effective design features such as the curtain walling for the entrance foyer on this building. Our team worked closely with the client to incorporate their ideas into the building, particularly regarding the entrance foyer and the showpiece steel staircase.
In an industry where repeat business for a client is rare, the strong relationship between Dove Construction and the US company, Crane Merchandising, formerly known as Stentorfield, is exceptional. Over an eight-year period, we were contracted to undertake the turnkey design and construction of commercial and warehouse facilities for the company on three separate occasions.
The initial building was constructed using the Astron Building System to provide manufacturing and storage space with offices and showroom facilities. Subsequently, we built a small extension on the side of the building to house a new dispatch unit. Six years later, we added a further extension, with a 66-metre clear span, which incorporated the research and development facilities along with production area and offices.
Each new phase of the building uses the same Astron Building System to achieve a unified appearance, with a high-quality interior finish and exterior design that reflects the company's leading role in the industry.
The Community Centre at Brockworth is a modern, purpose built complex designed and built to meet the needs of 21st century communities—creating an exciting facility with integrated technology and physical access for all. Replacing a wooden structure typical of many old community centres, the new complex comprises the principal two storey building that includes a hall capable of seating 100 people, conference room, small meeting room and refreshment/eating facilities. On the first floor are offices for the Centre’s administration staff, and others available for rent by local enterprises. Attached to the main building is a single storey youth centre equipped with full multimedia facilities. The buildings are of traditional block and brick construction with tiled roof with the added feature of a small tower that houses a clock. The complex is a great example of how community centres can be transformed to remain an important facility to encourage a sense of community in our modern world.
This project required Dove Construction to demolish the existing hall and construct the new building on the same site, whilst keeping all existing parking facilities functional throughout the duration of the work. Working in close co-operation with the Churchdown Community Association, Dove Construction were able to produce a cost effective,quality Community Centre to the tight specifications of the project. The Community Centre is a traditional cavity wall construction with steel composite cladding panels inserted at high level together with a purlin less steel profile roof system. The interior roofing is constructed of castellated steel beams with sound insulated panels, making for a robust structure which is fully compliant with all the functional needs of a public centre.
