Herne Bay Age Concern

The organisers behind Age UK Herne Bay had a vision to provide a sensitive landmark building that would serve the community by providing modern, sustainable facilities for elderly people. Having been actively progressing a notion for a new centre for several years, the charity was eventually in a position to enlist the help of Clague

The challenge

Its location within the green gap between Whitstable and Herne Bay presented some problems with regard to planning permission, but these were overcome through Local Authority, community consultation and sensitive Architectural planning and design, at which Clague is particularly adept.

Our solution

The project was intended to afford the local community a day care centre, together with a drop in café and Alzheimer care unit, in place of the somewhat dilapidated accommodation at their Hampton Pier Avenue and Mortimer Street centres.

An environmentally sound approach to the project was developed in conjunction with Chapman Bathurst Building Services Consultancy, making the project a resounding success.
