History

1986 - Hull Ice Arena & Indoor Bowls

This arena was one of Hull’s biggest leisure redevelopment projects after the recessions of the Cod Wars and the early 80s.

This prestigious, and at the time state-of-the-art project, had the foundation stone laid by HM the Queen in 1987 and was officially opened by John Curry OBE World and Olympic figure skating champion in 1988 and would set the tone for more public sector work than ever before. A series of Indoor Bowls Centres across the country were constructed during this period, including Charnwood Bowl Loughborough opened by Diana, Princess of Wales as well as centres in Barwell, Bedford, Camberley, Durham, Scarborough and Solihull. In 1983 the Ennerdale Leisure Centre had also been completed.

In 1990 the firm completed the fish factory for F. Smales & Son, also opened by Diana, Princess of Wales. The early 1990s saw a significant upturn in work, with high-profile jobs for Yorkshire Regional Health Willerby, British Gas on Clough Road, Image Data Systems and extensive redevelopment of 10 -12 George Hudson Street, York for Houlton Developments.
