Wee House Group celebrates 10 years in business
The Wee House Group, this week, observed a huge milestone in their calendar by celebrating 10 years in business and marked the occasion with a family-friendly birthday bash at their head office in Cumnock, Ayrshire, with staff, sub-contractors and their extended families. There were fun activities all afternoon with a bouncy castle, some delicious fayre from three excellent local food trucks, archery, boulle and some thirst-quenching beverages. We also gave family members and friends the opportunity to tour our manufacturing facility to find out more about how we work.
The company was founded in 2013 by Jennifer Higgins and her father, Ian Hope who shared a vision to make custom build accessible anywhere in the UK. Fast forward ten years; the company now has a workforce of over 70 direct employees working from their 120,000sq ft factory at Caponacre Industrial Estate, Cumnock, Ayrshire and has multiple contracts on the go, including delivering 101 affordable modular homes in Shortlees, Kilmarnock for Cunninghame Housing Association.
The Wee House Group comprises: The Wee House Company (bespoke solutions for small sites), Connect Modular (delivering large scale, affordable developments) and Hope South West (groundworks division) and provides a full service from concept design including statutory consents, to the manufacturing of new homes and their completion on-site, to a variety of clients, from private individuals to local authorities and housing developers.
Acting Chief Executive Officer, Richard Reid, Comments: “We’re delighted to be able to celebrate our 10 years in business with our staff and their families – a fantastic day was had by all. We would like to thank everyone who has supported the business over the last decade – we have come a long way since we started out and we’re excited to see what the next ten years have in store, sharing the journey with our team and those who join us along the way”.
The Wee House Group is confidently looking forward to continued growth over the next ten years and the many exciting opportunities for volumetric modular construction.
