EVORA Construction looks set to enjoy its best ever year as it marks its 10th anniversary.

Directors Richard Elam and Mark Reynolds launched the company at York Eco Business Centre in February 2009, initially specialising in small-scale extensions and refurbishment projects.

In 2015, the company expanded into its current headquarters at Chessingham Court, Clifton Moor, and its team will typically work on up to 14 projects simultaneously throughout the UK ranging in value from £100,000 to £4 million.

The company now hopes to win The Press Business Awards' Large Business of the Year title.

Richard said: “The ability to grow and foster strong relationships has been a vital part of our controlled, year on year growth, and repeat business is the backbone of the company with more than 80 per cent of our work coming from previous clients, which is a great endorsement for what we do.

“Our tenth anniversary is a major milestone and we’re in a really strong position, with £11 million worth of work already under way in 2019.”

Projects include transforming the Grade II-listed Spenfield House in Headingley into apartments along with seven new build townhouses; building a £1 million medical centre extension at Leeds Student Medical Centre, a CAT A office refurbishment at Monks Cross, York and extending Beechwood Primary School in Seacroft.

“Celebrating 10 years is a big achievement,” said Mark.

To mark the milestone, they have refreshed the Evora logo, pledged to raise £10,000 for Cancer Research and plan to continue their work with volunteer organisation York Cares, a partnership of employers committed to making York a better place.
