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.

Testimonial

“The kitchen and dining hall project has dramatically improved the school. Hookway was instrumental in assisting us obtaining funding and ensuring smooth project management. ”

“Hookway worked in close partnership with us and carefully managed a range of trades and contractors. Greg Smith, Hookway’s Surveyor, met with my team regularly and always acted upon any feedback shared; he cared passionately about the quality of the work and made sure that it was completed to an excellent standard.’”

“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!”

“I lose count of the amount of positive comments we receive from visitors on how great the new build looks and it really fits in well with the existing building.”

“The whole project has been a complete success from start to finish. Hookway and the builders (HBC) were a pleasure to deal with and the project management was highly professional.”

“The whole project was entirely ‘self-sufficient’ as far as the school leaders were concerned, apart from pre-agreed meetings/decisions along the way, and the building was completed to a very high spec in a safe and efficient way. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hookway to other schools.”
