Avoca has achieved the major milestone of 10 years in business while crediting its employees for the company’s continued growth and success. Founded in 2005 Avoca has grown into a nationally recognized and award winning multi-disciplined building services engineer.

Maintaining our established background in both consultancy and contracting, Avoca embrace new technologies which are testament to our excellent reputation for delivering a client-focused quality service.

Founded in 2005 by Mark Hooper, Avoca has grown from a small local business into a multi-disciplined award winning consultancy now employing over 20 people working countrywide.

Investment in the business over the last 10 years has seen Avoca’s project portfolio continue to flourish with many multi-million pounds schemes throughout the UK.  Striving ahead the consultancy were one of the first building services engineers to purchase BIM software and provide intensive staff training, of the new technology.
The growth of the business led to relocation to larger premises in Bowburn in 2014 where they are now settled and employ over 20 staff.

Success continued with the expansion the senior team and promotion of two directors after a period of steady organic growth, helped by the success of offering additional services, such as sustainability consultancy and 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) from in-house experts to serve the changing demands of the industry.
Mark Hooper, managing director said; “It has been a wonderful journey, building a super team of staff, a close network of clients and some very loyal relationships with key suppliers. We will continue to prosper and have built an excellent reputation, treating everyone we work alongside with respect and gratitude, while always building long lasting partnerships.

"Our success over the years has undoubtedly been a result of understanding our clients and their needs. We will endeavour to keep the very ethics that Avoca has been built upon and look forward to many more years in business.”

These were comments echoed by recently appointed Director and shareholder Mike Seaward; “We look forward to the next 10 years working with our clients and our great team of people who together have helped build the business into the market leader it is today.”
