Following a turbulent few months navigating the limitations imposed on the construction and manufacturing industries during COVID-19, Robinsons Structural Steelwork & Cladding Division are back and have hit the ground running!
Having gone from strength to strength over the last 15 years, the team have found new ways to adapt to the “new normal” while being one of the businesses affected by the nationwide shutdown and, despite these challenges, they have continued to thrive thanks to their dedicated team and loyal customer base. Using this “downtime” to strategise, build relationships, and work hard on improving their bid and tender options, Robinsons have identified new ways to take the Division to the next level. With restrictions in place, new ways of bringing potential clients to the office were looked at, with team members deciding that utilising video would be the most engaging way to let people know what Robinsons are all about.
Robinsons’ dynamic Structural Steelwork & Cladding Division have the ability and expertise to take on a variety of projects, having worked on a substantial – and rapidly growing – number of interesting jobs. They have worked on several supermarkets, retail outlets, educational buildings, office buildings, warehouses and distillery contracts, subcontracting to both Councils and Main Contractors. Projects such as Bruichladdich Distillery have allowed the team to showcase their expertise – for example, providing 360 tonnes of structural steelwork and 1150 concrete panels for cladding in 120 well-planned loads to the Isle of Islay, where the erection team battled with inclement weather conditions! While the projects on Islay have been challenging, Robinsons were quick to apply to take on further phases of work at Bruichladdich and are currently on-site for the fourth phase. Alongside this, the Structural Steelwork & Cladding Division are excited to be working on another Lidl Retail Unit at present for NRS, adding on to the various Lidl projects under their belt.
As Robinsons have grown, the knowledge and expertise their team members bring to the table has expanded – the business has developed Main Contractor, Architectural and Agricultural services to further complement their Structural Steelwork & Cladding Division. The Main Contractor team have a wealth of experience, coming from various backgrounds within the industry. The team has managed the construction of new farm shops, retail units, bonded distillery warehousing, sports clubs, commercial warehousing, offices and internal refurbishments of clubhouses, residential properties and educational buildings.
Robinsons’ quick growth has necessitated the addition of various new accreditations and the introduction of an in-house Safety, Health, Environment & Quality Manager who oversees all aspects of Health & Safety on and off-site. All steelwork is CE marked and Robinsons now hold ISO9001 accreditation, CHAS Gold Premium Plus, Constructionline Silver and SAFE Contractor. Understanding the importance of further development, the team are currently working towards ISO14001 and Constructionline Gold.
A quick look through the Robinsons portfolio and their knowledgeable team members will showcase the team’s flexible working attitude and their ability to work as a subcontractor, in collaboration with other companies, or as the lead in a variety of projects.
