Overview

Hookway is experienced in most types of residential construction and maintenance to include one off ‘grand design’ housing, social housing, student accommodation and everything in-between - be it on a green or brown field site, new build, refurbishment or conversion.

We are able to assist with all aspects of residential assets to include site option appraisals, planned and preventative maintenance on property portfolios, initial budget estimating and cost planning through to full cost and project management from the inception to the completion of your project. We are also able to offer the Principal Designer service and have good working relationships with other professionals to enable us to offer a ‘one stop shop’ for the life of your buildings. 
We work with housing associations, private clients, and other organisations to provide cost effective and marketable buildings to suit the budget and aspirations of our clients.

 

Our Approach

Understanding the needs, aspirations and financial requirements of our client is key to being able to help deliver residential buildings that are marketable, attractive, and sustainable and provide value for money. 

Using the experience of our team we are able to provide early key advice on the suitability of the site and able to then provide detailed cost estimates to enable informed decisions to be made on the viability of a scheme. Should the project progress we are able to offer as much or little help as required to meet the individual needs of our clients.  We understand the market forces and financial constraints of the residential market and the tight budgets that many of our clients must work within.

Similarly the cost of maintaining existing buildings can prove difficult to budget for and also manage. Hookway is able to offer a full proactive and reactive maintenance service. Our team of surveyors are able to undertake condition surveys and arrange and manage all works required using our local knowledge and list of trusted contractors. We have built up a detailed knowledge of our clients built assets and look after hundreds of buildings throughout the south west and beyond providing peace of mind that the condition of the buildings is being activity maintained thus helping reduce any unforeseen expenditure in the future.

Testimonial

“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.”

“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 new washroom facilities have significantly improved the internal environment and Hookway have been on-hand to efficiently project manage these works to our satisfaction.”

“Hookway recently secured funding through CIF to install a new playground surface (MUGA) for our front playground to help improve the PE opportunities and safety aspects for the children. The children are over the moon about their new playground, and are already enjoying safer and more interesting playtime and sports lessons.”

“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!”
