Houlton’s build Hymers College Dame Judi Dench Theatre

The Dame Judi Dench Theatre marked over 100 years of association with the school, from when George Houlton Senior constructed the main school building in 1893. Other work for Hymers included the Craft Design & Technology (CDT) block and new Junior School, which was completed in 2004 and replaced the old “temporary” Junior School which Houlton erected in 1964.

Important school work was also carried out at South Hunsley, with extensive refurbishments and new sports pitches between 2003-2007.

Other projects included extensive refurbishments for Bird’s Eye on Hessle Road (since demolished by us!), as well as the construction of their new 40,000ft², £10 million pea-processing plant (one of the largest in the world) in 2008. Work at the University of Hull has also been important, with the successful completion of the Ferens Building opened by HRH The Duchess of Kent in 1996, the Business School and the Logistics Institute.
