Halsall Construction, a Bath based firm with a presence across the South West is experiencing a high period of growth. Over the last year Halsall has seen over 60% increase in turnover and as a result they have been able to recruit new team members, as well as promote staff internally.
Alan Blanford and Clive Fletcher have joined the team as contracts managers. Alan joins the business from a residential developer and has over 20 years’ experience working in the sector. Clive joins the company with over 25 years’ experience in general contracting businesses.
In the commercial team Ian Cooksey and Nick Leigh join the commercial team as Quantity Surveyors. Leigh Hill also joined as a freelance Quantity Surveyor. Halsall have also appointed a new Office Manager Cally Lane, a role that was created due to the positive growth within the business.
Andy Corp Managing Director commented: “The construction industry has certainly stabilised with a steady stream of enquiries coming through however we, like many construction companies, are facing significant challenges securing resources and materials as demand grows. The future is looking bright and we are very optimistic that our plans will ensure we can look forward to sustained growth in the coming year”.
Halsall have recently completed the Melksham Cluster development for Selwood Housing. The project included the design and build of 16 new homes across seven garage sites in Melksham. The mix of two and three bedroomed semi-detached bungalows and houses were all built to level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. However, some of the new homes were constructed traditionally as limited access meant that timber frames could not be delivered to site. These properties had solar thermal water heating installed to improve energy efficiency and achieve level 3.
Halsall have also built two new care lodges that have recently been opened at Dorothy House Hospice in Winsley. The lodges were built to extend the hospice at home care provision and allow terminally ill patients to stay together in comfort with their families when staying at home or in a hospital is not practical. The lodges were partly funded by a £262,497 Department of Health grant last year; construction started in October 2013 and completed in March 2014.
