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.

Testimonial

“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.”

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

“The new building has been open for over a year and teachers and pupils are still excited about it. It is so well designed in terms of light, space and ventilation that it is a joy to work in. The projecting roof at each end creates fantastic covered play space.”

“Hookway really understand schools – including their needs and the financial pressure that they are often under - and we have a long-standing and very positive working relationship with the company.”

“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.”

“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.”
