These latter elements will elevate you beyond the scope of a conventional housebuilding QS and will stand you in good stead for your career development and progression.

You'll need to be dynamic and energetic, thoughtful and considered. If this sounds of interest, please get in touch.

The next generation of housebuilders visit Tarleton Green

On Friday 24th November, 34 children from Year 4 of Tarleton Community Primary School, came for an exciting tour of Hollins Homes' Tarleton Green development.

All of the children were given a hi-vis jacket along with hard hat, and were shown around the Tarleton Green construction site by Senior Project Manager, Paul Winstanley. Paul talked the children through how a home is constructed, which was followed by a prize-winning quiz, testing their new house-building knowledge! Well done to Charlie Turner for being top of the class.

In addition, the children were asked to design some Christmas decorations for the Tarleton Green showhome. The competition was strong, displaying some fantastic designs – with the winning decoration being designed by Isaac Bond, who received the game Monopoly for first prize.

This fantastic day was topped off with some delicious treats, all of the children receiving a selection box and best of all an autograph from each member of the Hollins Homes team!

The children and staff had a wonderful day, with Deputy Headteacher Janette Higson, stating "I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Hollins Homes team for this morning. The children and staff are buzzing with excitement! Your time, kind gifts and treats were very much appreciated (along with the autographs)! Our school is delighted to have such a great partnership with Hollins Homes. Year 4 children absolutely loved visiting you all and got so much out of it!"

The Hollins Homes Christmas tree will be erected from the 1st December at the Tarleton Green showhome, and decorated with all of the decorations created by the children from Tarleton Community Primary School. The children and families will be able to visit any day of the week between 10am and 5pm to see their decoration displayed on the tree.

‘Wear CAT boots for toe-tal protection’

Over the past two weeks we have been working with Tarleton Community Primary School to highlight the dangers of construction sites. Working with a group of 9 and 10 year old children, we set a competition to design a Health & Safety Poster for our latest development ‘Tarleton Green’ situated on Hesketh Lane in Tarleton.
 

To start the children off, we gave each child a goody bag with pencils, note pad, and healthy snacks to spring into action their young creative talents!

Yesterday our Managing Director – Mark Chadwick, Operations Director – Gary Buckley, Tarleton Green Senior Project Manager – Paul Winstanley, and Tarleton Green Sales Consultant and Competition Organiser – Anita Winstanley, visited Tarleton Community Primary School to choose a winner!

Mark, Gary, Paul and Anita were amazed at the overall standard of the designs plus the clever slogans included, such as, ‘Wear CAT boots for toe-tal protection’!

After much deliberation we chose our winner! A joint effort by Lewis and Alfie stood out due to its simplicity whilst including the essential Health & Safety messages, plus the Hollins Homes logo! Well done Lewis and Alfie who have won 5 tickets to Southport’s Splash World, which were kindly donated by Splash World. Enjoy!

The decision to choose a winner was a difficult one with two very close runners up. Well done to Jensen and Leigh for their brilliant designs.

To close the competition all participating children were given a teddy bear kindly donated by our shower and tap supplier, VADO. Thank you!

We would like to thank Tarleton Community Primary School, especially Janette and Chris, for allowing us to work with the children.

In the Summer we intend to invite the children to visit Tarleton Green so we can show them how new homes are constructed!

Tarleton Green is a development of just 17 new homes ranging from 2 bedroom mews properties, to spacious 4 bedroom family homes which include a modern way of living! For more information contact Anita on 0330 133 0269.

MARK TAKES PART IN THE VADO RALLY 2016 – RAISING MONEY FOR THE RAINY DAY TRUST

Early on Thursday 15th September 2016, 37 cars and 124 people set off for Dover to start the VADO RALLY 2016. They had come from Dundee in Scotland, Newport in Wales and across England to do one thing – raise money for the industry charity, the RAINY DAY TRUST.  

Teams of up to 4 people from across the builders’ and plumbers’ merchant sectors were invited to take part in a banger rally, buying a car for less than £500, driving down through 8 countries to Monte Carlo, before moving onto Nice for an awards dinner. The Rally took place over 4 days and covered 1,300 miles. Each team was set a target of raising £1,000 for the RAINY DAY TRUST, and a trophy would be awarded to the team that raised the most. To make things a little more interesting, the Rally was done in fancy dress with different themes each day, and challenges were set for each team to complete during the day.  

VADO, who supply our high quality bathroom taps, asked our Managing Director, Mark Chadwick, to enter a team along with our supply partner Premier Contract Supplies Ltd.

Day 1 was a drive from the start point in Namur in Belgium, through Luxembourg to Metz, then on through Strasbourg to the second night in Freiburg, Germany. The first day’s challenges were to provide photographic evidence of tasks completed; arm wrestling a complete stranger, wearing one green shoe, making – and wearing – a swimming costume made from a carrier bag, having a stranger play a musical instrument in your car, or finding and being photographed with a bronze crocodile! The teams all had free reign for their fancy dress theme which resulted in pirates, Top Gun, pop singers and ballet dancers in tutus – and that was just the men!

Day 2 jumped off from Freiburg, teams dressed to an Oktoberfest theme, and headed south through Switzerland and the Gotthard Pass to Como. Several cars stopped off at the Verzasca Dam for some of the teams to do a bungee jump on the dam filmed in the Bond film Goldeneye.  The challenges on the second day centred on collecting items; a postcard showing a goat, an Audi brochure, a receipt for as many items as possible costing less than €1 in total and an American quarter amongst others! For the drive itself, the Furka and Gotthard Passes proved a challenge in their own right, and one car turned back to find an easier route having blown its radiator. 

Day 3 was a straight drive from Como to Monte Carlo with a Christmas fancy dress theme, stopping off at Vado Ligure to be photographed next to the road sign. Santa costumes in cars with dodgy aircon and 25 degree heat made things a bit uncomfortable. But driving along the coast road with the most spectacular scenery was a fitting end to an amazing rally. The locals in Monte Carlo were a little confused by the spectacle of 37 cars and people in fancy dress driving passed their Casino. Not really a place to linger at €33 for two beers, the teams headed out of town to Nice for the night’s celebrations. Amazingly, all 37 cars completed the rally intact, though one failed right outside the hotel and had to be scrapped. 

The event was a huge success in every sense, organisationally, socially and from a fundraising perspective. While some funds are yet to be received, the rally is expected to have raised in excess of £65,000 which is incredible for the Rainy Day Trust. The money raised will be invaluable in helping people from our industry who are struggling.

WELL DONE MARK!

Fulwood Green - Showhome is now Open!

Saturday 17th September saw the opening of our latest showhome at Fulwood Green.

With more than 30 house hunters already registering their interest in the properties, the event was a sure fire success, with around 50 visitors attending. A number of customers even visited the new development, located north of the city of Preston, twice during the weekend. Such was demand, the showhome had to stay open an hour longer than planned to ensure everybody had enough time to look around.

Feedback received across the course of the weekend has been great with visitors commenting on the finish and attention to detail of the home design. What’s more, another property was snapped up meaning Fulwood Green is now over 35% sold.

With a number of people currently already seeking financial advice for their preferred plots, we would encourage those looking to buy a property at the development to come down soon. The showhome is open Thursday to Monday 10am - 5pm, call today for more information on 0330 133 0396.
