Yorkshire International Business Convention

19th June 2012

Yorkshire International Business Convention

Mason Clark hosted a table at the Yorkshire International Business Convention held at The Spa, Bridlington. With a very early start and the weather against us (a terrific downpour, just in time for arrival!) it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit as the speakers were extremely thought provoking and entertaining.

The celebrity line up included Steve Cram, Michael Portillo, Kevin Keegan, Mary Portas, Will Whitehorn and Rory Bremner. Tim Davis, Business Development Manager at Mason Clark said,” if I had to really choose a speaker who stood out the most, it would be Mary Portas with her ‘Buy British’ message”.

A thoroughly enjoyable day had by all.

£1.3m Rokeby Housing Development

£1.3m Rokeby Housing Development

Mason Clark Associates recently attended the official opening of the £1.3million Rokeby housing development on 18 May where we undertook the Civil and Structural design work on behalf of our Client, Pickering & Ferens Homes. The development was opened by former Home Secretary and Hull West and Hessle MP, Alan Johnson who said “These new buildings not only look fantastic but I can also see they are packed with modern technology to help the people living in them reduce heating bills and keep warmer at the same time” with Roger Elliot, Director of Pickering and Ferens Homes saying “This scheme has been delivered with the excellent assistance of a number of Hull-based consultants and contractors. We are also pleased to say that the organisation is progressing well and going from strength to strength”.

The development, on the site of the former Rokeby House care home in west Hull, was made possible through a grant of £539,000 from the Homes and Communities Agency together with land provided free of charge by Hull City Council. The additional cost was financed by Pickering and Ferens Homes. The dormer bunglows offer ground or first floor bedrooms suitable for any resident regardless of mobility issues and have second bedrooms for friends or relatives to stay to assist during periods of ill health. The homes are built to accommodate daily living needs as people get older such as wide doors and hallways, space for wheelchairs, easy to open windows and easy to reach switches and sockets.

Mason Clark Associates have undertaken a number of projects for Pickering & Ferens Homes who are the largest locally based independent Housing Association for older people operating exclusively within Hull and East Yorkshire. We are currently working on their new Askew Avenue development of 20 bungalows which has recently started on site.

Mason Clark Marathon Man

Mason Clark Marathon Man

A tremendous effort from Ian Cook our very own Marathon Man.  This was Ian's 2nd attempt at a Marathon which he completed it in a staggering (not literally!) 4 hours 19 minutes.  Although Ian was much younger the first time (!), he actually ran it quicker this time.  Like a good wine, Ian obviously improves with age!  He reckoned he could have been faster though if it hadn't been for all the other runners getting in his way!?!

Trinity Shopping Centre Tour

Trinity Shopping Centre Tour

Courtesty of the Forum For Tomorrow (FFT) and Laing O’Rourke, Laura Norris was very fortunate to have a sneak preview of the new Trinity Shopping centre in the heart of Leeds City Centre.  This new leisure development will house over 100 sensational shops, stores, restaurants and cafes. 

The guided tour offered a very interesting and topical review on the logistical challenges, late changes (120 to date) and how handover programming is being dealt with.  The highlight of the tour had to be the iconic roof enclosure. 

The Trinity Shopping Centre is scheduled to be open in March 2013.
