JPG assist in York city development “The Walk”

The £7m investment will allow the development, dubbed ‘The Walk’, Holgate Road, York, to capitalise on a “buoyant” residential market in the city.


JPG are providing structural engineering support for the refurbishment of the building and were instructed by the developers, Caddick Developments to carry out load tests to confirm existing floor capacities, a structural review of the existing precast concrete frame, design the foundation system for the new external façade, provide drainage details and structural advice during the construction phase.

The development is a joint venture between Caddick Developments and The Villas Venture and will be co-ordinated by York-based Helmsley Securities.

Myles Hartley, managing director at Caddick Developments, advises: “The strength of experience in the development and construction teams provides a clear indication of the design and build quality at The Walk.”

“We are hugely excited to be on site and to see our aspirations for the scheme be brought to life over the coming months.

“I’m sure interest in the apartments will be high from those looking for contemporary modern city centre living and savvy investors.”

JPG work closely with our construction partners to bring about the best results for a project. Our focus on delivering high quality and detailed production information, overseen by our directors at every stage, ensures that the construction process runs smoothly and within budgets.
