Engineering Services for Buildings

NIAB Research, East Malling Kent

Our working relationship with SDC Builders and NIAB continues in Kent with the redevelopment of the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) East Malling Research facility (EMR). This is our 4th major NIAB development with SDC over recent years. Phase 1 of this particular scheme incorporates the overall project infrastructure, facilities building 1 and new glass house and polytunnel. Further phases will provide an additional facility building and 3 more glass houses/polytunnels. We are currently advancing the enabling package and the design of phase 1 which includes a new 1Mva UKPN power supply. The EMR site serves the “Garden of England” and concentrates its services around the soft fruits and the latest UK growing industry…….the grape. We look forward to the opening, and possibly, some English wine tasting!
