About Hawkspear

Hawkspear Contracts Limited was formed in October 2002. During its formative years the company carried out a wide range of groundworks projects of varying scales predominantly for private clients and satisfied its customers in terms of quality, cost and programme. It was another two years before it became a full time role for the founding directors Phil Woolland and John Symes in June 2004.

By the summer of 2005 - the company had expanded its workforce and management team to enable it to secure larger projects working as a specialist subcontractor for main contractors whilst still undertaking the smaller scale groundworks that had been its foundation of the early years. This in turn led to further opportunities and the turnover continued to rise steadily to circa £1.5M.

In 2007, our reputation on past contracts had become widely known throughout the industry we began to secure further works directly at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and also having involvement in all areas of the subsequent terminal expansion developments working for Bovis Lend Lease and McLaren Construction. Civil engineering works on both the ILS upgrade and runway approach lights replacement has necessitated further specialized training and investment ensuring we match both our clients requirements and the demands of working in a live airport environment.

In May 2009, we relocated our former Hooton office to our new office complex based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport allowing us to continue to offer a dedicated service at the airport whilst also having convenient access to the motorway network, allowing us to target work across the North of England and North Wales, but generally within an hour's drive from the offices. Nonetheless, we have carried out works much further afield for past clients who have requested our services due to proven experience and to further expand our working relationships.

January 2010 brought our largest single contract to date working with McLaren Construction on a mixed retail & leisure development in Leigh. The value of works was just under £3M with completion within 26weeks of commencement. This fast track project saw us place additional demands on our own supply chain to allow us to deliver the scheme successfully ontime to the developer.

The ability to manage the scale and complexity of works with varying contract values has created numerous opportunities for us in recent years and we have maintained our position as a trusted and proven contractor who believes in supplying best value for our customers whilst delivering works ontime and in a safe working environment. Although our core operations and expertise are in groundworks and civil engineering projects this does not limit our involvement to any new developments or business opportunities and we will always be willing to examine any project and offer our opinion and practical solution where we can.

In 2013, we have seen the number of live contract sites we are involved with significantly increase such that we have made further investment with additional supervision and management recruited in order to maintain our great relationship with our valued customers and ensure that the high standard of our safe systems of work are being carried out across all sites as previously demonstrated by the hands on directors. It was also the year we eventually got around to launch the new website and to further enhance this milestone we introduced an eye-catching new look to the fleet of vehicles.

Please revisit us in the future as our history continues to evolve....
