Retirement Development at Moreton in the Marsh

One of the biggest housing trends in the last two decades has been the rise of the luxury retirement development. These schemes have sprung up all over the country. One of the biggest names in the sector is McCarthy & Stone, who have long been a customer of Robinson Manufacturing. We have completed more than 30 large projects for McCarthy& Stone, going back to 2004 and supplied trusses as far afield as Storrington in West Sussex, Cromer on the East Coast and up to the north end of Staffordshire!

  • 34 Apartments
  • 250 trusses required
  • 37m3 of timber used in the structural components of the roof
  • Two-part trusses used to keep truss heights under transport limitations
  • Extensive use of steels to support trusses, all of which were concealed within the roof structure by the truss design

The apartments boast fully fitted kitchens with an oven, hob and hood, as well as double-glazed windows and walk-in wardrobes in selected apartments. The development has all the latest features such as a 24-hour call system, fire detection equipment and lifts to all floors. For peace of mind, homes are also equipped with a camera entry system and intruder alarm. For more information on this particular development, click here.

“We’re always delighted to work with McCarthy & Stone” commented Robinson’s production manager, Mat Harbour. “Repeat business from such a prestigious name in the sector is a reflection of the quality of our design and manufacturing expertise.”
