By appointment to her majesty the queen - manufacturer of steel framed buildings A.C Bacon Engineering Ltd


A new contemporary work environment...


When ForFarmers wanted to construct new offices at Rougham near Bury St Edmunds, it had to make a statement that the staff and owners would be proud of and would reflect their modern approach to business.


The building has a stylish angular appearance combined with a jettied first floor that sets it apart from more mainstream offices. Together with economic running costs, the building is designed to house their 90-strong work force with expansion for another 30 staff, including a lift, gymnasium and canteen.


Working closely with Artisan (UK) Projects Ltd and the design consultants, A C Bacon Engineering Ltd helped develop the conceptual design to produce a building that would meet the requirements of the client. This included developing the structural steel frame and cladding support system.


The project put forward many design challenges including panel heights, colours and finishes forming the shape of the high level roof and bracing the lift shaft.


Once complete the scheme is set to be a prominent feature on the skyline of Suffolk for years to come.
