£200,000 win for Robertson Timber

Robertson Timber Engineering- which manufactures out of Elgin and County Durham- has secured a £200,000 contract to design and build a 64 bedroom hotel extension.

The project on the Helston hotel in Cornwall will be the timber firm’s 6,000th hotel room in only two years.

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." 

UK hotels are continuing to benefit from the improving economic travel backdrop. According to professional services firm PWC, the regions Robertson Timber Engineering operates in have welcomed double digit growth in terms of revenue per room.

Similarly, Visit Britain estimated that the country would welcome 36.7million overseas visitors in 2016, an increase of 3.8% on 2015. This market confidence is steadily becoming a reality as Robertson’s hotel build order book continues to grow.

"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," adds Mike.
