About Us

our history

The founding Directors of DAKO Construction were all born and raised in Sneinton, Nottingham and were all members of the Oliver Hind Club, also known locally as Dako.
The name DAKO originates from the famous Dakeyne Street Lads Club. The club was established in 1907 by Oliver Hind after he renovated the Old Lunatic Asylum Building on Dakeyne Street in Sneinton and was affectionatley known as DAKO. The club was one of the first youth clubs in the country and grew to become one of the largest member organisations in Europe. ​The club was founded on values of inclusion, forward thinking, hard work and innovation and these attributes are very much akin to how DAKO Construction operates today.

About Us

DAKO.

The name DAKO was inspired by the local Dakeyne Street Club, (‘DAKO’) which was created in 1907 by local solicitor Oliver Hind and it formed the 2nd Nottingham Battalion of the DAKO Brigade Movement.

Having a membership of 300 to 400 members, the club became the largest Company of the largest youth movement in the World, and the Brigade’s motto ‘Sure and Steadfast’ was held in high regard. The club still exists, the local born Founding Directors were members and are proud of their association with the Club and the values it instilled in them.
