Herefordshire and Ludlow College Agricultural Engineering Workshop

Client: Herefordshire & Ludlow College

Architect: Hewitt Studios

Following the completion of the LRC and Straw Bale Cafe at H&L College, we designed this purpose-built workshop for specialist training in the repair and maintenance of agricultural machinery.

The light and airy space is built from cross-laminated timber panels on a glulam frame. The M&E services were carefully integrated with the interior to maximise the floor space and height. It includes specialist fume extract and vehicle ramps for tractors, 110V, 230V and 400V electrical distribution with an emergency stop system, a compressor store and a full compressed air distribution system.

The project was the winner of the Education Project of the Year in the 2017 Structural Timber Awards.
