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.

Testimonial

“Hookway have helped to transform our aging washrooms over the past few months with minimum disruption to the school. Project management and funding application have been undertaken by Hookway in a very professional and helpful manner and we look forward to working with them in the future. ”

“The needs of the school were always at heart and I felt that I had a voice in the process. The two new classrooms are fantastic. They are light, airy and spacious, and the children love them. The children refer to them as the ‘Posh Wing’.”

“This year we had two bids totalling over a one million pounds for Lawn Manor. Our new boilers and plant, and new roof projects have gone completely smoothly, safely and within budget.”

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

“After a fantastic refurbishment of our Grade II* listed building roof last year, Hookway has excellently project managed a complete transformation of our asbestos roofs.”

“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.’”
