News: Horbury land air force base contract


Rotherham construction specialist, The Horbury Group has secured a £3.9m contract as part of the large redevelopment project on land which had previously been the east camp of RAF Hendon.

From its headquarters in the Moorgate area, the group combines a number of subsidiaries that specialise in areas including joinery, ceilings, dry lining and health and safety training.

Horbury Building Systems secured the contract from Carillion to build structural framing, internal partitions, suspended ceilings and external render for Blocks F3-F7 of the Beaufort Park development at Collindale, North London.

Horbury Building Systems is the largest company in the group and usually acts as the principal contractor in any multi-trade fit out package, co-ordinating other group companies and providing the client with a single point of contact.

Carillion reportedly secured its first £25m contract on the project from Berkeley Group's London housing arm, St George, in 2014. It recently announced details of a £33m contract to build 177 new apartments at the Beaufort Park development. Phase 10 of the project is being built for the Notting Hill Housing Association to provide affordable homes. Work on the site has started and completion is scheduled for Autumn 2016.

The ambitious development involves the creation of 680 high quality apartments in 14 blocks, up to 14 storeys high, within sensitively landscaped parkland. The development reclaims 25 acres of the historically important RAF Hendon aerodrome site, an air force base used throughout the 1st and 2nd world wars.

The blocks Horbury are working on are predominantly six storeys and range from studios up to three bedroom accommodation and are the latest apartments made available on the scheme. Horbury are currently on site constructing the light weight structural framing SFS, material supplied by Kingspan profiles and will commence internal partitions and ceilings later this month using materials supplied by Knauf. It is anticipated the contract will run for a total of 48 weeks.

Last year, the Horbury Group secured a £6m funding package from HSBC to support growth and help the company bid for larger contracts.

Formed in Sheffield in 1993 as Horbury Building Systems, the group has gone from strength-to-strength over recent years, increasing its turnover from £1.4m in its first year to over £50m today.

Subsidiaries have worked on a range of high profile projects including the Manchester Civil Justice Centre and The Co-operative's headquarters in Manchester, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and the City Lofts development in St Paul's Place in Sheffield.
