Overview

Hookway have worked with church organisations since the inception of the company in 1950. 

We have acted as surveyors in the construction of a number of Catholic, Anglican and Methodist churches and worship centres as well as significant number of modernisation projects to allow them to have buildings which allowed them to meet the needs of their local communities. 

 

Our approach

We understand the philosophy and aspirations that church communities bring to their building projects and are committed to supporting them in achieving their goals. 

Church projects often require the control of finances to be even more robust than normally required for commercial business projects. We understand that very often the client bodies do not have regular experience of dealing with building issues and we offer comprehensive support in dealing with problems and a proactive pursuit of appropriate solutions throughout the project.
