The 2020 Engineering Award went to Haston Reynolds for Centre for Dairy Science Innovation. A brand new re-imagining of dairy facilities at Nottingham University, which allows for increased herd size and greater productivity, whilst providing a flexible platform for research.
In 2015 it was decided that the existing farmstead required updating and expanding in order that it would continue to fulfil its commercial, educational and academic aims for the foreseeable future by radically improving the environmental conditions of the herd and develop greater opportunities for dairy study.
All of the structural building frame members, ridge light, gating, fencing, hinge and slam posts, cubicles, animal doors, observation platform and fixtures were galvanized to provide smooth hygienic finishes and to protect from cleaning solutions which would otherwise, quickly corrode unprotected steel items.
