Construction underway
Rearing unit construction

Construction on a timber framed rearing unit starts tomorrow, just outside Welshpool.

Unusually this build is a 10ft posted timber frame unit, which is why the concrete base is in already.  This can prove a more cost effective option and with Powell's expertise in timber construction this project is spot on for us!

This rearing unit (Lloyds rearing contract) will house chickens until point of lay,  from day old to approx. 16 weeks old.  It's just one of the many new rearing sheds required due to the increased number of free range units being built accross the country, requiring point of lay birds.

Ventilation will be supplied by LA Systems (UK distributor for Skov equipment) whilst groundwork is being carried out by Connops.
