Robinsons working on a project worth over £430,000

Home | News | Robinsons working on a project worth over £430,000

We are delighted to announce that we are working on a project worth over £430,000 for Newton Rigg College to provide a new sheep husbandry centre for their students.   

We began working on the new building last month and are delighted that we can work with the college to provide a building that will be used to train future generations of young farmers. 

Robinsons have worked very closely with the college to ensure that we were able to create a solution that would be fit for the purpose of teaching all year round and that would allow the college to focus teaching on the college’s lambing operations, a base for sheep shearing and for general sheep husbandry. The aim was to be as cost-effective as possible but to exceed the client’s expectations of quality and function. 

The project will include full demolition of the existing building and preparation of the site, full concrete works and erecting of the building which is a steel portal framed building with Yorkshire board cladding and a fibre cement roof. 

The works will also include general improvements to the farmstead including access, new hard standing and improvements to the silage clamp to allow it to be turned into a lambing centre. 

We will also be providing all of the internals for the building and by being able to provide the full turnkey project we can ensure that the building is completed on time and to the college’s satisfaction. The project is to be completed in September this year.   

Newton Rigg is the only college in England to have its own hill farm and it also hosts the National Centre for the Uplands. We are delighted to be working on a project that will support the development of a new generation of farmers. 

Ryan Brown, Managing Director of Robinsons Ltd stated “We look forward to creating a great new facility for the students and lecturers of Newton Rigg College and further boosting the colleges offering as the only college in England to have its own hill farm. We understand the importance of investing in the next generation to ensure that they have the tools to develop and be successful in this ever-changing industry and are delighted that we could deliver this project for the college.” 

“Being able to provide the full project from start to finish ensures that we are able to guarantee the quality of the work and the efficiency of the project as we will have full control of the construction of the building and surrounding works on the site.” 

The building will be officially opened on Friday, June 13th 2017
