Project handover takes place at Hyde Hall in Rettendon

A year long construction by Ipswich construction company, Brooks and Wood Ltd, at the Royal Horticultural Society’s only East Anglian garden was officially handed over yesterday.

Hyde Hall in Rettendon near Chelmsford was bequeathed to the Society by the Robinson family and has been steadily turned into the attraction it has become today drawing visitors from all over the country and world.

The £4.5m project consisted of a new restaurant, activity barn and separate Learning Centre enabling the RHS to provide teaching spaces purposely designed for horticultural use.

This is the latest of three major projects constructed by Brooks & Wood for the RHS since 2008. Concertus Design & Property Consultants provided architectural, landscape, mechanical and electrical design for delivery of this prestigious design. Initial design concepts were provided by Cullinan Studios, a London based design company.
