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.

“Tom Bishop led us through the two-year process with a calm and professional demeanour. His contribution to the project was central to the completion of the building on-time (during the pandemic) and the design outcomes have suited our teaching and performance needs completely. A highly successful design and architectural project.”

“Everyone at Hookway has been great to work with. They have worked closely with us to ensure that every last detail has been agreed and implemented. Thank you - we look forward to working with you again!”

“Hookway have worked in collaboration with us to deliver this transformation project and have provided regular clear communication throughout which has helped with the smooth running of the project. The project team have all played a vital role in this year-long programme and we’re delighted the project has finished on time and on budget.”

“Our old sports hall has now been transformed into a multi-purpose performance space with a professional stage lighting and sound rig. What a transformation! Tom Bishop from Hookway listened very carefully to our requirements and then went about designing the new Norton Hill Arts Theatre. With cherry panelling and sound absorbent materials the main room has amazing acoustics, perfect for concerts and performances alike.”

“Hookway was instrumental in securing The Redstart Learning Partnership schools crucial Salix LCSF funding. This grant will provide us with invaluable energy appraisal surveys, which will greatly enhance our chances of being awarded PSDS capital funding for decarbonisation projects. ”
