Progress so far

We are continuing our efforts at Spen Farm with phase 2 now fully underway. This has been after a short break and the successful completion of phase 1.

During phase 2, the Farm Research Centre will see the main electrical circuitry system testing and commissioning on its agricultural feeding systems. A collaboration drawing upon skills provided by companies from across Europe. We will also be managing works for the University of Leeds which will include; the completion of bund wall painting, bollard protection, storage tank insulation, ramp areas and site signage.

The final stages of work will allow the introduction of Pig Livestock onto the Farm followed by systems optimisation, a proud moment for our Client.

...and with livestock arriving on site, your pig jokes are always welcome!

Over the next two weeks

Over the coming weeks we will be connecting Pig behavioural CCTV cameras and installing a new COMM's room.

Meet the team...

How does it feel working for Sewell?
It’s a privilege to work for a company that’s within the Sunday times 100 best companies to work for. Working with open, supportive and talented people to ensure client expectations are delivered.
What do you think about the Spen Farm Project?
It’s great to be working alongside the University of Leeds on this state of the art facility. The project requires close client and contractor engagement to ensure the facility operates in accordance with requirements. Working with the university has been a pleasure and we look forward to working with them in the future.

Tell us a little bit about where you are from?
I live in Melton, a village to the West of Hull on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds.

What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a two year old daughter and am expecting the arrival of another girl in October.
