Chris Hodgson Engineering has built up a working partnership of over 38 years with Simon Essex (The Manor House Hotel & The Ashbury Hotel), building and developing his Sport and Craft Hotel complexes.

It is not unusual for Hotels to close whilst development takes place. But due to the rate steel framed buildings can be erected, the overall planning control Chris Hodgson Engineering maintained over each phase of development, plus the added benefit of the planning, design, fabrication and installation all being in house, this never occurred, even over such an extensive period.

Steel framed buildings are very adaptable but also have the capacity to allow a handle on the financial outlay at the outset of every project.

Over the years Simon Essex has maximised these intrinsical benefits whilst utilising the knowledge and expertise of the South West’s leading steel frame building manufacturer.
