Hotel milestone for timber engineering firm


ROBERTSON Timber Engineering has been awarded a contract to to build what will be its 6,000th hotel room in the space of two years.

The firm, which manufactures out of Elgin and County Durham, will design and build a £200,000, 64-room extension to the Helston hotel in Cornwall.

Robertson said the new Whitbread hotel brings the firm’s total number of bedrooms created to 6,000 – equating to £6 million worth of business.

Mike Turner, managing director at Robertson Timber Engineering said, “The past year has been phenomenal for us. I believe the main reason for this is our ability to manufacture the timber kits off-site reducing costs for our clients. 

“Alongside our other works we have a specialist team who work solely on engineering hotels so we’re able to respond quickly. We’ve managed to carve a niche for ourselves in this space, and I’m excited about what lies ahead for us.”
