Window of opportunity for EYG at lodge park

A HOME improvement company has won an order worth more than £250,000 for high-spec windows and doors for lodges at the KP Club in Pocklington.

Hull-based EYG Commercial was awarded the contract for the manufacture and fitting of aluminium windows and patio doors for 24 new lodges within the grounds of the golf club, near York.

Family-run EYG, which was founded in Hull and still has its head office in the city, supplied the windows for the club’s existing woodland lodges that are set in 180 acres at the 18-hole championship course.

EYG’s commercial manager Steve Swallow said: “They were very happy with the windows and doors already on site, so came back to us for the 24 new lodges that are being built.

“It’s a fantastic club, and a beautiful location, and we are very pleased and proud to be working with the KP Club once again.”

The woodland lodges will be made from cedar, using natural slate for the tiled roofs, with dark grey aluminium windows and aluminium patio doors. The windows all have remote controlled blinds built within the double glazed units, and the cabins will be equipped with velux rooflights.

The three and four-bedroom cabins will also be built with solar panels.

EYG’s fitters are hoping to be on site in March, and the project is expected to take eight weeks.

The company’s joint managing director Nick Ward said: “The KP Club is one of my favourite golf clubs, and we have a great working relationship with them. We’re excited to be part of this prestigious development; the lodges and location are stunning.”

EYG has a turnover of £17m and employs 350 people. Founded 42 years ago by James Bingham, who is still the main shareholder in the business, the company has showrooms across the country including in Hull, Leeds, Doncaster, Scarborough, Grantham, Lincoln, Spalding, Nottingham and Cardiff.
