Refurbishment underway on Hull waterfront

A £500,000 refurbishment of Riverside House, which overlooks Hull's historic Victoria Pier, is underway. Contractors have started work on the three-storey building, which is set to be shipping, transport and insurance law firm Myton Law's new offices.

Out of the seven successful companies Voase Builders ranked second overall, a complement to our team of hard working, loyal employees. Project opportunities are imminent and we are thrilled with this award of a further Framework Agreement. The Company look forward to collaborative working with NE Lincolnshire Council and developing new and existing relationships with the local supply chain and community in Lincolnshire.

Riverside House is located next to the Fruit Market, which is a key regeneration area within Hull’s City Plan, close to the marina and The Deep and looks out over the River Humber. Restoration of the 4,841 square foot building is expected to take four months.

Myton Law appointed BSB Architecture, the Hull-based architects' practice and Myton Law's fellow tenants at The Deep Business Centre, to undertake the design work and project management.

Now, following architectural and interior design, preparatory works, planning approvals and tendering, the project team has been commissioned, including main contractor S Voase Builders, mechanical and electrical engineering business Sutcliffe Consulting, quantity surveyors' firm Richard Walker and structural engineering company Mason Clark.

"It is very exciting indeed to have the main works underway," said Myton Law's John Habergham. "After a rigorous tendering process, we are delighted to have such a strong team on board and it is great that they are also fellow Hull businesses."

Stephen Voase of S Voase Builders added: "With our track record of successful restoration projects, this refurbishment scheme is one for which we are well-equipped in terms of skills and expertise. We were keen to win the contract and look forward to working with Myton Law to transform Riverside House into their befitting head office."

It is expected that the refurbishment will be complete at the end of January. The work is being funded from Myton Law's company reserves.
