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

“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.”

“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 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 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’.”

“Hookway have been fantastic for us, they have prepared all of our bids and CIF has made huge difference to our buildings over recent years. ”

“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.”
