The Orangery - Rushton Hall, Rushton, Northants
- Construction - Structural Steel Frame fronted with Ashlar Limestone. Behind the stunning façade of this building lies a cleverly designed structural steel frame necessary to support the large loadings and harsh moment forces imposed by the Ashlar stone blocks, some of which weigh in excess of 3 tonnes. The steel frame is millimetre precise and level to ensure a perfect fit of the computer modelled and bespoke stone blocks.
- Building Size – in excess of 900m2 including function rooms, foyer, kitchens and accommodation areas.
- Steel tonnage – 40 tonne
- Awards – Winner in the Recreation and Leisure category at the 2019 RIDBA Building Awards. This project was praised by the judges for its traditional look using modern materials and its completion on time despite the numerous site challenges faced.
