Support services

Hookway provides a variety of building maintenance and repair support services to schools. We currently support over 100 educational establishments including MATs, Academies, Sixth Form Colleges, Secondary and Primary Schools located throughout the South West. 

Reliable, professional service

Our team of experienced surveyors and support staff deliver a highly responsive, reliable and professional service. We have a demonstrable a track record of commitment to the schools we have worked with for many years and even decades.

Servicing and compliance

You are accountable for the safe and legal undertaking of building works conducted at your facilities. Whether it’s working with asbestos and ensuring appropriateness of safety procedures, passing building control or meeting specific building regulations, neglecting your responsibilities can have serious consequences. We can ensure this doesn’t happen and that every aspect of your project is conducted legally and safety, every time.

We understand that working with schools and colleges requires special consideration, with additional working restrictions, safeguarding and sector specific legislation all commonplace. Hookway can meet your requirements and get work underway with a minimum of fuss.

If you want to know more please call or email and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Construction Health & safety

Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 the role of the CDM Co-ordinator (CDM-C) has been replaced by the ‘Principal Designer’ role. The Principal Designer must have an understanding of how health and safety is managed during the design process and must possess the skills to oversee and co-ordinate health and safety during the pre-construction phase and through any ongoing design. Hookway's highly experienced consultancy team provides comprehensive contract administration services and, in that capacity, can act as the Principal Designer for a very broad range of projects. 

Under the CDM regulations the lead designer on a project might assume the role of Principal Designer. However, not every designer will feel that they have the relevant knowledge, training and experience to discharge these duties. This is where our previous experience as CDM Coordinators comes into play: we have developed an ‘Advisor to Principal Designer’ service to address this specific need. In this capacity we will ensure that all duties and obligations under CDM 2015 are properly fulfilled, whilst ensuring that creativity and design innovation remain unbridled.

We handed them responsibility and they delivered a concise and detailed package of information which included everything required to submit to Salix. They made it easy and took it out of our hands. We can happily say that Hookway was crucial to us being successful and we look forward to working with them on the 2nd phase of application. ”
