PJPS Construction Help Out DIY SOS

Limited, along with a group of volunteers from the region have helped to change the lives of a family from Rise in East Yorkshire by giving them a home to make their lives more manageable, as part of a project for TV.

The popular show DIY SOS arranged the team at the home of the Liversidge family to enable the family to spend more time together and live comfortably.

The home make-over show has over the years seen hundreds of homes around the UK, renovated by local teams of volunteers and professionals. DIY SOS is the longest running show of its format and has been on-air for over 15 years and is famous for it’s emotive endings. Last year, the production team appealed for Hull and East Yorkshire based tradesmen to volunteer to help renovate this family home.

, Director of heard about the project in the local press and was delighted when his firm was selected to take part in the programme.

Phil says: “I’ve watched DIY SOS for years so when the opportunity came about to help a family in the local area, the members of my team and I jumped at the chance. It was very rewarding to be a part of this project. We worked closely with the production team who provided us with a build schedule for each day and along with other volunteers we worked to ensure that the Liversidge family ended up with the home of their dreams. It was a fantastic experience as everyone involved was passionate about helping to improve the family’s living conditions and we were all working towards the same goal.”

This is not the first high profile construction project that PJPS has been involved in as the firm has also refurbished the birthplace of J Arthur Rank on Holderness Road, a project that has also attracted national attention. The finished result was revealed earlier this month at a grand opening ceremony.

“We are fortunate to have been involved in major high profile projects over the last year. The refurbishment of the Rank House was a regeneration project that we undertook as part of Probe’s Empty Homes scheme. Not only did it bring much needed affordable housing to the city, but it celebrates one of Hull’s greatest legends. It was a real honour to be part of the project from start to finish.”
