Overview

Hookway has broad experience within the public sector having undertaken many projects throughout the country. Examples include sports halls, Multi-use games areas (MUGA), public park improvements and visitor centres to name a few. Each type of project will present unique challenges and Hookway understands the importance of addressing and managing these individual issues.

Projects within this sector often have funding obtained from various sources, such as Lottery, and Hookway is able to assist with funding applications and also the reporting often required as part of the funding agreement.

The financial sustainability and viability of such projects is often key and Hookway is able to offer invaluable advice at an early stage to assist with business case reports and viability due diligence.  

Our Approach

Understanding the needs, budget and aspirations of public projects is key if the end result is to be a success from both a usability and financial sustainability viewpoint. Hookway always takes the time to fully understand what the requirements are from all viewpoints and then work collaboratively with all stakeholders to deliver the project.

Due to the nature of public projects it is often also essential that the necessary specialist teams are consulted at an early stage to ensure that the project budget is realistically set; the award winning collaborative ethos that drives our team of professional surveyors ensures that the end result is achievable on time and on budget.

As with all our projects the point of contact will be a Partner who’s many years of experience will drive the project to a successful conclusion and provide hours of enjoyment for all who use the facility.
