Brothers complete conversion of car showroom to relocate building firm

A family construction firm has showcased its skills by converting a high-profile former car showroom into its new headquarters.

Garness Jones helped brothers Oliver and Edward Pearson identify the former Trenton premises in Springfield Way, Anlaby, as they planned the next phase of the growth of Wardolls Ltd, the construction business which Oliver launched in 2010.

Now they have completed the refurbishment of the new premises, constructing offices, factory space and storage areas to enhance a property which is in a prime location.

Paul White, Agency Director at Garness Jones chartered surveyors, said: “The premises are extremely visible to everyone travelling along Springfield Way and to visitors to the retail and business parks on the opposite side of the road.

“For years it has been known as a showroom for various motor dealerships. Oliver and Edward were not the only people to see the potential, there was a lot of interest in the property but they moved quickly to get the deal done.

“It’s in a great location, instantly recognisable to local residents and very convenient for a business which has a growing client base elsewhere in the region. It was also ideally suited for conversion to meet the needs of Wardolls. There is a shortage of freehold, modern commercial premises but with their skills they were able to develop the building to their own specification.”

Oliver, who started his career as an apprentice plumbing and heating engineer at the age of 16, expanded into general construction with the launch of Wardolls eight years ago. Edward, an electrical engineer, became a director in 2015 and the pair have gradually expanded the business, relocating from their own premises at Sutton Fields Industrial Estate, Hull, to the new home.

Projects include domestic work, commercial premises, new-build, property development, maintenance and repairs working in the Hull and East Yorkshire area and as far afield as York, Harrogate and Liverpool.

Oliver said: “The amount of space here is about the same as we had at Sutton Fields but we can do more with it and it’s a more convenient location for us.

Edward added: “We had been keeping our eyes open for a place for some time but we didn’t want to rent. We heard about this from Garness Jones and it’s perfect. We’ll now work on taking the business forward in our traditional areas of activity and getting more involved in property development.”
