Abstract: In this paper we introduce a new method for constructing compactifications of a locally compact space. The method generalizes the notion of a singular compactification to a much larger collection of compactifications, which we call ESH-compactifications. In particular, if $ X$ is paracompact, or realcompact, then $ \beta X$ is of this form. We also establish conditions that ensure an ESH-compactification is a singular or weakly singular compactification.
