Construction work is progressing on A C Lloyd Homes’ residential scheme in Lapworth, on a site bordered by countryside and leafy canals. Robothams Architects have designed the scheme’s 38 new dwellings in a contemporary style drawing on the rural context and using local materials. The houses are generating a considerable amount of interest from purchasers with a sales suite opening in May.
The 1st May 2019 saw the grand opening of Aston University’s new students union building. The event brought together the whole team who were involved in delivering this vibrant new addition to the University’s campus, and facilitating the continued redevelopment of its city centre home.
Robothams Architects have led the design team both on the construction of the shell and its fit-out ready for occupation in the coming months. The scheme has been delivered using a design and building contract with Clegg Construction.
More details are available on our website at the building’s project page.
The new national office for RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association) has now been handed over to the charity at its site Lowlands near Warwick. Earlier phases saw the refurbishment and extension of an indoor menage, however the final phase gives RDA training and office space and creates a contemporary face for the public visiting the site.
Construction work was undertaken by Greswolde Construction, with a consultant team including Starkey Button, Couch Consulting and Greenways.
Abingdon & Witney College’s new Livestock Technology Centre has completed on site. The project which includes the construction of a new indoor riding school will extend the College’s potential to integrate technology into their courses. It features both a large practical space, changing and bio-security areas and a theory teaching room.
The new building will be used to teach animal husbandry across a wide range of livestock. Working closely with the farm manager and the Head of the Faculty the fit out was coordinated with the shell building to create a facility that both reflected a real work environment and had the IT infrastructure to support the technology.
Works are progressing on site at RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association) Lowlands Equestrian Centre on their new spectators area for the indoor menage, training accommodation and new offices. Due for completion in 2019, Greswolde Construction are completing the project in phases, the first of which is before Christmas.
