Overview

Hookway have long involvement in the maintenance and improvement of historic buildings.

Projects range from stonework repairs and re-roofing of listed buildings to the complete improvement and upgrading of facilities. We work regularly in historic cities like Bath and central Bristol where a knowledge and understanding of the local built environment is essential for successful outcomes.

Our Approach

A sympathetic and understanding approach to projects on historic buildings is essential. 

We have surveyors who are committed to maintaining and enhancing our heritage whilst not losing sight of the clients need for budgetary control and the practical needs of the 21st century. We aim to ensure buildings are functioning entities for their owners and users whatever their origin.
