Contractor: Wates Living Space

Completion Date: May 2015

Mechanical & Electrical Value: £930k

Following a competitive tender process Acumen Projects were awarded the Mechanical and Electrical Packages on 61 Studio Apartments and 2 no. one Bedroom Apartments by Wates Living Space, Birmingham. The site is located in Adelaide Street, Coventry.

The Gateway opened earlier in May 2015 as a state-of-the-art homeless facility with 61 studio flats and 2 no. one-bedroom apartments, homing a maximum of 65 residents. It replaced The Chace Hostel in the city’s Willenhall area as the primary facility for homeless people in Coventry.

Residents have access to a range of on-site facilities to improve their situation and future prospects, including a training kitchen and an IT suite, and are supported on-site by WM staff and the Salvation Army.

WM Housing Group’s £6 million Gateway building in Adelaide Street, Coventry, has been shortlisted in the Housing Project of the Year category of the 2015 Builder and Engineer Awards.
