Building the future... Restoring the past.
Horizon Construction is a traditional construction company carrying out projects up to circa £7m to date. Turnover in 2016/17 was around £22m, with 2017/18 to be well in excess of £25m, generated across most sectors of the construction industry. We deliver results through a thorough understanding of our business sectors and, by using our extensive knowledge and experience, we form a first-class construction team that will exceed the expectations of clients regardless of the nature and complexity of the project.
Horizon Construction was founded in 1999 by the two current shareholding directors. Since formation the company has grown to a team of more than 40 directly employed staff.
The key directors and senior management team are members of the Chartered Institute of Building, and the company is registered and qualified with Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme, Construction Line, National House Building Council, Premier Guarantee and BLP Insurance..
We have recently opened a London office, based in Borough Market, which currently employs six staff and is set to generate turnover of around £5m in 2018-19.
DESIGN & BUILD
Horizon Construction works closely with specialist design teams to procure a wide variety of projects in the commercial, automotive, education, healthcare, residential, bars and restaurants, and sports sectors. We procure the best professionals and trade contractors while managing cost objectives to the client’s expectations.
Horizon Construction is proud to be included on tender lists for a number of project managers and architects where we regularly tender traditional contracts. We have a good success rate and have built long term relationships with these companies.
Horizon has built a reputation for high quality and value, with clients for whom we regularly negotiate projects and procure work under a traditional form of contract. This provides the client with greater flexibility, ability to react to commencement quicker, and to have involvement in the selection of trades.
Horizon Construction operates a small works department dealing with lower value projects up to circa £250,000, reactive and scheduled maintenance requirements, and the maintenance and modernisation of a number of key clients’ property investment stock.
Our specialist areas of expertise include:
A design and build contract to build a bespoke new sales and after-sales facility for Porsche which involved demolishing a previous dealership to make way for the new piled and steel framed building.
A traditional phased contract to form a new library, teaching, administration and welfare block linked to the school. The project was built in very tight constraints in a live school environment.
The conversion and refurbishment of a typical Essex Barn into a 200 cover restaurant, with new build attached associated kitchen and welfare facilities and extensive external works and landscaping.
Horizon Construction is a professional, friendly and pro-active company to work for. A number of staff have been employed by the company since inception and the directors strive to generate an environment and culture where people enjoy working.
There is a clear structure and chain of command within the business but we have created an environment where everyone works collaboratively and provides support for one another.
