Construction Cost & Project Management

Dovedale Avenue, Preston

Community Gateways project at Dovedale Avenue is Preston’s first independent living scheme and is well underway and scheduled to be complete by 2020.

The scheme will consist of 60 apartments, all with private outdoor space, a bistro, hairdressers, treatment/consultation and activity rooms.

Once complete the facilities, including the communal gardens, will be open to the general public to encourage engagement with the wider community and neighbouring residents.

The first of its kind in Preston and one of very few in Lancashire, the new independent living scheme will provide 24 hour support to residents with a range of support needs.

“This scheme will provide a fantastic resource for the local community, who have been overwhelmingly supportive. When the scheme is completed, the building and the service that we will be able to deliver for some of our most vulnerable residents will be something that the local community and everyone involved in designing the scheme can be really proud of.”
