A Teesside civil engineering firm has been appointed to carry out further significant infrastructure works worth £2.5m at the exclusive Wynyard Park housing development.
HMH Civils, which is based in Stockton-on-Tees, has been selected to deliver the contract for a new development on the Wynyard Park estate adjacent to Wynyard Village, located between Hartlepool and Stockton.
The works include creating roads and sewers for Wynyard Park’s unique schemes of self-build plots, with exclusive pockets of land where people have bought land to design and create their own homes.
This is HMH Civils’ third contract for Wynyard Park and the work to date has resulted in the company creating 10 full-time staff and 250 jobs for local construction workers.
John Hughes, HMH Civils director, said that the company was delighted to have been appointed for the further works.
“Our aim is always to provide value in engineering for our clients and to show the best value we can. This new contract, our third for Wynyard Park, shows that we are delivering on that.
“This is also not only good news for us, it has a positive knock-on effect locally. Wherever possible we employ local labour so it means jobs and investment for this area too.”
Wynyard Park’s development director Matt Johnson said: “Wynyard Park is a significant development for the Teesside area and we are committed to using local companies and suppliers wherever we can so we are very pleased to be working with HMH Civils who have in turn created local jobs.
“Our scheme is backed by private investment and we are very proud to be having a positive impact on the local economy. The infrastructure project we have appointed HMH Civils to work on is the result of high demand for our self-build plots so the investment is set to continue.”
HMH Civils, which was set up three years ago, specialises in civil engineering and house-building projects and currently also works on contracts across the north east and North Yorkshire regions.
Wynyard Park is an exclusive housing development set amongst 180 acres of woodland that includes a range of homes from entry level and executive houses from national housebuilders to areas created specifically for self-build. It is located between Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees and is accessed via entrances on the A689 between the A19 and the A1.
