Remediation of an existing brownfield site to construct a new Head Office Building with associated Car Parking, Container Production Facilities, Bulk Shipping Container Storage and associated logistics, security & service provision for all on site operations.


The project involved working closely with the client to manage & react to the component elements of the evolving & changing needs of various business units and optimising client value within a fixed budget allowance for the project.


Understanding the client’s business & its core needs enabled us to Value Engineer the scheme to deliver the essential components in the short term & plan a 3 year phased programme of works to provide the optimum solution as permitted by the client’s budget & business constraints. Providing a design & build option for foundation, drainage & carriageway design and balancing the needs of the differing sectors of the business.


We held regular meetings to assess & prioritise the client’s needs; jointly programmed the phasing & handover of the works to enable a smooth transition from the existing premises to the new facility without detrimentally affecting the functioning of the business and targeted achieving the optimum design solution to the overall project brief to provide best value for the client.

"Universal Container Services have used Hovington’s Ltd for a number of years to supply everything from basic civils to full bespoke drainage and concreting projects, Mike Penny ( Contracts Manager) and his team has always offered a high standard of service, the products we have received have always impressed. We have always found Hovington’s to be reliable and competitive, when we’ve given them a challenging build they have proven to be flexible and creative. We look forward to dealing with Mike & Hovington’s in the years to come."
