AA Projects has secured a position as Project Manager on the Reaseheath College consultant framework and already been appointed to take forward the first two projects of the college masterplan development programme. The first is a £7 million project to provide a new building for the Horticulture department which will include state-of-the-art glass house technologies including robotic equipment to help students meet the future requirements of industry. It is anticipated that this will become a National Centre for Excellence in horticultural studies.
