The Kent Excellence in Business Awards is an annual awards scheme staged and produced by KM Media Group and Kent County Council. It recognises and rewards excellence in Kent’s businesses.
RBLI was shortlisted in the awards, and was chosen as a finalist following a visit from the KEiBA judges to the village site.
The Veteran’s Apartments project was created to support ex-servicemen and women who are not a priority for social housing, or are in extreme need due to disability or homelessness.
The £4 million project forms the first phase of building a Centenary Village near Maidstone, which will create nearly 100 homes for veterans and their families.
Currently, there are 24 apartments situated in Hermitage Lane which have been funded through the initiative. The build was approved by RBLI trustees in 2014, and the two apartment blocks were officially opened in 2017.
Each company we worked with in the design and construction of the buildings was Kent-based, providing employment opportunities for local people.
Congratulations to everyone involved, a fantastic achievement.
