Hollywell has many years experience within the church sector and is able to recognise and plan for issues that arise from running buildings that are often old, are in constant use and have archaeological importance.
Hollywell knows that many church buildings come with a unique set of challenges that often require a very particular and sympathetic approach. Added to to this is that church buildings are often in constant use to both members of the church and the community that use them. Being able to react quickly as problems arise and also plan and prevent future issues in these buildings is a specific skill set that Hollywell has been able to refine over many years.
We believe that our extremely experienced staff and our 24/7/365 help desk infrastructure puts Hollywell in a perfect position to look after church estates and provide the best value and care.
