Project Description

Military Road, Folkestone

Housing Development Project

The Military Road development in Folkestone consisted of the construction of 35 one, two and three bedroom flats and houses by Jenner Contractors for Folkestone and Hythe District Council.

Martello Building Consultancy was appointed as Employer’s Agent for the project on the site of the old Shepway Resource Centre on Military Road, carrying out Quality Site Inspections, Contract Administration, Snagging and End of Defects work. The old Resource Centre had been closed and was unused for a number of years and was an ideal site to develop new, much needed affordable housing.

Martello have previously worked with Jenner Contractors on a number of local schemes including the Riverside Vineyard Church project and the Custom House Project for the Folkestone Harbour Company.

We have also worked for Folkestone & Hythe District Council on a variety of different local projects ranging from Design and Project Coordination for a new play area in Radnor Parkthrough to heritage work for Folkestone townscape improvements.
The Military Road homes were completed in June 2018 and were offered to local people through the local authority housing list as part of the Council’s commitment to provide more affordable housing, either through affordable rents or shared ownership.
