NYBCP Award Winner for  Riverside Community Special School Phase 1

A successful night The North Yorkshire Building Control, building excellence awards saw Houlton pick up the winners award for our project at Riverside Community Special School in Goole. The award was recognition for the works undertaken in Phase 1 of the project.

Phase 1 was awarded via the YORbuild 2 framework on behalf of East Riding of Yorkshire Council. The project was to deliver a new facility which could accommodate a further 120 pupils. To meet this requirement, a seven classroom extension was built, which includes a Hydrotherapy pool, a new hall, gym, sensory room, small group rooms and office spaces.

LABC South Yorkshire & Humber Awards Winner and Finalist

The 2019 South Yorkshire and Humber LABC awards were held at Forest Pines on the 17th May. Houlton were in attendance as two recent schemes were being judged.

Housing Scheme, Shannon Road, built for Hull City Council was placed as a finalist. Whilst The Hugh Webster Scheme, constructed for The Goodwin Development Trust was a winner in the best social housing project, a category in which both schemes were entered.

Hull Civic Society Quality Marks

Houlton were invited by Hull Civic Society to talk to their members about two major projects we had recently undertaken. Due to their historical significance Hull Minster and Ferens Art Gallery are of particular interest to the society.

The society monitor planning applications and decisions, commenting to the city’s Planning Department about those they think are particularly significant. They send representatives to the monthly Conservation Areas Consultative Committee and meet City Council Planning and other Officers to discuss matters that are of concern.

They aim to promote High standards of architecture and town planning in Kingston upon Hull and the surrounding districts. They have a public interest in, and care for, the beauty, history and character of the area of the city and its surroundings. Preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historical interest.

The Society celebrate and encourage wider knowledge of Hull's heritage among its citizens and visitors.

To that end they award a 'Good Mark'  to celebrate improvements – new buildings, restoration of older ones and other projects that set a good example. Since then, several hundred have been awarded, from the first given in 1968.

Prior to delivering the talk about the refurbishment project at Ferens Art Gallery and the remodelling and refurbishment project at Hull Minster, we were presented with two Good Mark Awards, one for each project.

Managing Director Andrew Kingston, who was in attendance along with Dave Padden and John Bayliss who delivered the talk said:

" This was a fantastic way to start our 140th year in business, as a company that has been building in the city since 1879, we recognise the importance these buildings are to Hull's heritage. It is for that reason that we were proud to carry out the works which enable the buildings to be enjoyed by future generations."
