Rolawn Ltd - New Head Office
Lindum provided Design and Build services to turf specialist Rolawn to facilitate its expansion into new purpose-built head offices. After 40 years based at Elvington, on the outskirts of York, the company wanted to move its administration, sales and management staff to its 21-acre warehouse and workshop site, seven miles away in Seaton Ross, East Riding of Yorkshire.
Our York team were invited to carry out the construction work after providing a price, based on Rolawn’s initial designs. Lindum provided Rolawn with a two-storey office building, using brick and block walls, pre-cast concrete flooring and a timber roof, with the design including a glass foyer with feature lighting and open plan offices.
Rolawn Managing Director, Paul Dawson, said: “This is a key investment for the company, as the provision of ever more consistent, high quality products and services is reliant on well-co-ordinated, focused attention to detail, requiring joined up thinking and actions, across all departments. By putting Head Office right where we process, blend and despatch all our products, brings all staff much closer together. In addition to which, the site is centrally located within the area where we grow all our turf.
“We have also worked hard on the design of the new building to ensure it provides an improved working environment and after the first few weeks I could not be happier with the feedback I have received. I firmly believe this will be good news for customers as after over 40 years."
