The newest living scheme developed by HBV in Coventry will be completed in March of this year. Jardine Crescent is based in Tile Hill and will feature a single block of eight and a single block of sixteen apartments, together with an additional ten apartments that will support adults who require a high level of complex care.
As the project is approaching completion, the residents referred by the Coventry City Council will move in there by spring. The development offers adults with disabilities their own home, which will make them feel less dependent on their families and will boost their dignity to live their lives in a supportive community.
“It’s important to me to make sure that the most vulnerable in our society are cared for in the West Midlands. One of the key issues I want to address as Mayor is to not only see existing housing stock improved and upgraded but new developments like this built on appropriate brownfield sites like this,” said Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands.
He continued and said that Jardine Crescent is a great example “of what can be done using the specialist supported living model which is a fantastic approach to dealing with the shortage of quality accommodation for vulnerable adults.”
The appointed contractor of the scheme is J Tomlinson, while the architect is Calderpeel. On-site support and care will be provided by Lifeways and ATEL will offer assistive technology, including automatic doors, care call systems, and access control.
“It is fantastic to see Coventry have a development of this type. This scheme goes a long way in providing a safe and comfortable environment for people with learning and physical disabilities, as well as more serious cases of complex care,” added Cllr Faye Abbott, cabinet member for adult services at Coventry City Council.
