It's a great start. January 2016 has seen us mobilising to 3 new contracts across the Yorkshire region. The contracts are all for repeat Clients keen to work with Howard Civil Engineering again based on the previous performance delivered by our site teams.
Back in July 2015 BAM Construction were awarded a £9.3 million project to create the second University Technical College in Sheffield (UTC2).
Sited adjacent to their recently completed, Oasis Academy Don Valley, a primary school and secondary school, also supported by Howard Civil Engineering, this second educational facility will specialise in academic qualifications in human sciences and computing, preparing students for employment in two of the key growth sectors in the Sheffield City Region. It will open in September 2016, and hold 600 pupils aged 14 to 19.
Howard Civil Engineering have commenced on site, carrying out the substructure, drainage and external works packages.
Howard Civil Engineering are pleased to be supporting Henry Boot in the delivery of this unique highly specified project; an extension to one of the North’s leading hotels.
The works consist of the construction of a new spa and hotel extension to the Grade 1 listed historic Rudding Park Hotel and our package includes bulk excavation, basement and reinforced concrete frame totalling approximately 2,000m3 of concrete.
It's a surprisingly complex build on 3 levels with multiple split levels to incorporate 2 pools and associated plant and equipment.
The new spa, featuring a 17m swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, thermal rooms, treatment rooms, an additional restaurant and shops, will take 14 months to build.
Prior to award the Client paid several visits to our Yeadon site, another RC frame for Henry Boot, assuring himself that he had choosen the right partners for this prestigious project.
January has also seen us commencing on phase one of this £100m development that will be home to the new TK Maxx distribution facility, providing more than 1.2 million sq ft of accommodation. The building is scheduled to complete in January 2017 and once operational will support up to 1,800 jobs.
It's been a challenging start with the site submerged under the Christmas storms, but we are looking forward to supporting Caddick Construction, delivering the groundworks package on a huge scale befitting such a project.
