Industrial Masterplan Holme Upon Spalding Moor


Project Scope:

ACA+I has worked closely with J. Rotherham, a progressive stonemasonry company based in Holme on Spalding Moor near York, to devise a masterplan for the exciting expansion of their company. The project promises to improve the infrastructure of the area, complement the vernacular of the rural surroundings and bring employment to the area. The phased industrial masterplan comprises of an office block, café, gym and other facilities that will enhance J. Rotherham’s position as ‘Employer of Choice’.

The site is located on an old airfield in the heart of the East Yorkshire countryside. The external design has been carefully formulated as a response to the building size, location and context. The main factory development will be fabricated using a ribbed metallic cladding that will absorb the colours of the surrounding landscape. The future office block development will connect to the large monolithic factory building. The appearance of the office block will be achieved using a combination of architectural stonemasonry and metallic cladding panels. Using a clever combination of contemporary, ergonomic and biophilic design, the internal design will create a healthy, welcoming and happy workplace.
