Hawk Heritage has carried out work on a number of projects for the University of Southampton, including a project at South Stoneham. The site comprises and early 18th-century grade I listed house, thought to have been designed by Hawksmoor, and gardens laid out by Capability Brown. During the 1960s and 70s, a tall modern tower was built close to the house along with unsympathetic wing attached to the west side of the house.

The university wished to demolish the tower and remove the modern wing but this involved delicate demolition and potential disturbance to archaeological remains through the removal of foundations. Hawk Heritage negotiated a watching brief which allowed Kelbray to undertake the demolition successfully and the watching brief, undertaken by MOLA, confirmed that there remains were of low significance.
