Robinson is one of the leading steel supplier and fabricators in the UK, has for sometime aimed to design and build their very own offices and factory, for optimal efficiency, business growth and to showcase their capabilities to clients, both new and existing.
In 2015, Robinson purchased a 5500m² site on Haslams Lane in Derby and the planning of their new, state-of-the-art premises began. Whilst maintaining a busy order book and winning new business, Robinson managed all aspects of the planning and construction of their new offices and factory, including the installation of six overhead cranes in the 4500m2 factory.
Works included Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing across the entire site, along with the implementation of a ‘Triton Storm Water Solutions’ system for underground attenuation, along with a Syphonic guttering and drainage system, for overall enhanced site drainage.
Where possible, Robinson upcycled existing floor slabs and materials. The entire steel frame of the building is Galvanised, excluding the boundary wall columns which were intumescent coated on site. Pad foundations were placed by the Robinson in-house site team and a composite metal deck floor with a stunning white finish was installed throughout. Robinson chose to have a Trapezoidal roof along with micro-rib wall cladding, which was imported from a partner in Europe.
The 4500m2 factory benefits from Pre-cast walling to the entire perimeter and final touches include full interior design, office fit out, ample car parking and mature landscaping.
