Milestone for York builder transforming iconic city centre street


York-based construction company, Evora Construction Limited,celebrated their 8thbirthday with a current order book for 2017 of£10million.

The business has continued its controlled growth year on year through strong service delivery for their clients, with multiple repeat commissions for projects. In the last 12 months the business has made further appointments to their Head Office team to strengthen their administration support. They recently appointed Richard Smith to the post of Small Works & After Care Manager to support clients after the main build is completed.

On site the business is working on some exciting projects within their home city of York with the construction of the new coffee shop facilities at Deans Garden Centre. In addition, the redevelopment of the former BHS building and the adjacent former Wallis's unit on Coney Street will bring enhanced retail space to the iconic street.

Last year saw Evora construct over 30 apartments in former office buildings across the country and this area of the business has continued to grow with 40 dwellings currently in construction which are a mixture of new build homes and apartments. Recently the development of 18 one and two bedroom apartments at Aviator Court in Clifton Moor has been completed and the properties are now on the market.

Playing an active part in the community wherever they undertake projects is important to the Evora team; none more so than the work they have done with York Cares on the Big Community Challenge which this year transformed Hull Road Park.

Evora Construction Director Richard Elam said:"We are delighted to be celebrating our 8thbirthday and to be undertaking work on a number of great projects for new and returning clients, many of whom we have worked for since we formed the business."
