I believe that is partially because of our passion for our work and partially because of our end product. Fundamentally, we ensure a smooth process with clients & contractors to result in a quality conclusion.’ Recently HMA purchased a derelict icon of the A1: The Former Little Chef at Wansford. This piece of Art Deco architecture has been restored and converted into the practice headquarters. Ducati Peterborough lease out part of the building which is once again taking its place as a landmark on the A1. “Looking to the future, our plans are to strengthen our team and continue to work on some great projects with a variety of clients. We are about to see a 7,000 sq ft new build underground house start on site and also have a £4.5m spa to go in for planning in the North East. Whilst we continue to work on numerous small scale domestic extensions and refurbishments.”
