Procured via the YORbuild2 Framework, Houlton are undertaking The Hepworth Wakefiled Garden.

The project, predominantly civil engineering works will be phased.

  • Phase 1 - Concrete Walls & Benches
  • Phase 2 - Drainage & Services
  • Phase 3 - Footpath & Stone Sets
  • Phase 4 - Soft Landscaping

Major new grants from The Foyle Foundation (£100,000) and The Wolfson Foundation (£150,000) took the total raised for the garden to over £1.5million, meant work could commence.

The Hepworth Wakefield will continue fundraising so that the beautifully landscaped garden can be finished in 2019, creating a major new and free visitor attraction for Wakefield.

Andrew Kingston, Managing Director of Houlton said: “We’re proud to have been involved on this significant development of Wakefield Waterfront and are especially pleased to have worked on such a flagship project for Yorkshire during our 140th anniversary year. This challenging project has seen Tom Stuart-Smith's vision turn into a reality for the people of Wakefield and the visitors of the gallery.
