This is a £5m new build project for Yorkare Homes to construct a three-storey premium care home. The 72-bed facility has a separate unit for nursing, residential care and two smaller dementia care units.
Hobson & Porter was the main building contractor at the 1.3-acre site in Beverley Parklands. Unlike many facilities or buildings of this scale, this was constructed using traditional brick and block methods as opposed using steel, timber or other rapid-build construction techniques. One driver for this was the emphasis on providing a traditional home environment for residents as opposed to a clinical or healthcare-led environment.
Hobson & Porter’s Nostell Way housing project in Bridlington came about as part of a £5.5m project to build new affordable homes for council tenants, creating 48 brand new houses at the top of Pinfold Lane, consisting of 28 three-bedroom homes and 20 two-bedroom homes, to be accessed via Nostell Way.
The building materials, including triple glazing and extensive insulation, were chosen to make sure the houses are all energy efficient, and compost bins and water butts have been installed in order to encourage residents to live environmentally friendly lifestyles.
Hull City Council commissioned Hobson & Porter to undertake a significant refurbishment programme of some of its housing stock, as part of the Green Deal scheme.
After funding was committed for regeneration in the Preston Road area over a five year period, we began refurbishment and structural works to Kingston and Winget properties.
The £3 million refurbishment contract involved us carrying out external wall insulation and render, which formed part of a series of other work required to achieve Decent Homes standard.
Yorkshire Housing, a registered social landlord which provides more than 16,000 affordable homes throughout Yorkshire, appointed Hobson & Porter to develop a scheme of new build properties.
We worked hand in glove with this not for profit organisation to ensure the new homes we built on their behalf in Gilberdyke continued to position Yorkshire Housing as one of the best providers of homes and support in the region.
Thimblehall Lane, in East Yorkshire, provides a peaceful residential setting with a mixture of both houses and bungalows creating a thriving new community.

Hull City Council commissioned Hobson & Porter to carry out frontage improvement to council owned properties in Hull’s Boulevard area.
The £5 million project saw us carrying out frontage works and rendering, as well as replacing garden walls, gates, railings and paving work to improve the appearance of the fronts of the properties in Welstead Street.
Hobson & Porter worked closely with the local community to minimise diruption to residents who were still living in their properties whilst the work was carried out.
