Will You Be Attending Building Home In Hull?

Construction companies in Hull and its surrounding areas may find it beneficial to attend a key event being organised by Hull City Council – Building Home in Hull.

The aim of the event is to help shape the city’s future where housebuilding is concerned, the Hull Daily Mail reports, as well as helping to connect local developers, small businesses and sole traders to facilitate the building of quality new homes.

The event is due to be held on November 27th, at the DoubleTree by Hilton, and there’s a host of top speakers who have signed up to attend, including council portfolio holder for housing John Black and Humber LEP chair Lord Haskins.

Advice will be shared on how to bid for work from the local authority, or as sub-contractors to developers working on the city’s housebuilding sites, now and into the future. Traders will also enjoy access to business support providers who will be ready to dispense advice on the opportunities currently available.

Mr Black said: “The next phase of our ambitious city-wide housing regeneration programme extends to developing a number of smaller sites. Their requirements in terms of development and supply trades are ideally suited to the small, local contractor and I hope as many firms as possible come along and see the sites which will be brought forward.”

All sorts of exciting projects are in the pipeline for Hull at the moment, including a new £130 million development of one of the city’s biggest sites. This particular project has, according to the Yorkshire Post, the potential to boost the local economy by more than £40 million a year… with Albion Square’s Edwin Davis and BHS/Co-op buildings being knocked down to make way for retail and car parking spaces, as well as 278 homes.

There’s also a new student accommodation development currently being constructed at the University of Hull, as Specification Online reports. Westfield Court is the very latest development on the campus by University Partnerships Programme, with the complex consisting of nine accommodation blocks, an urban green and avenue, a convenience store, a café, laundry, and both formal and informal outdoor areas.

Not only that but Barratt Developments has also started work on new properties in Cottingham in East Yorkshire, with Harland Park and Poppy Fields honouring Hull’s wartime history and naming streets in commemoration of both world wars.

Harland Park, for example, has been named as a tribute to Harland Way Camp, which was a temporary site set up in the second world war where Cottingham High School and Hull University now stand. Poppy Fields, meanwhile, was inspired by In Flanders Fields, a WW1 poem written by John McCrae that begins: “In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row, that mark our place; and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below.”
