The Rural and Industrial Design and Buildings Association (RIDBA) is the leading voice in the modern rural design and agricultural buildings industry, representing and connecting surveyors, planners, designers, suppliers, fabricators and universities and colleges right across the sector.
With stringent criteria for quality, technical expertise and professional standards, RIDBA membership conveys confidence to clients who can be assured they are working with specialists who have a deep understanding of the needs of UK farmers and are embedded in the UK rural economy.
Richard Moody, managing director at Wolfenden Concrete, explains why the company decided to apply to join the Association,
“We have made significant investment in the last few years in new product development – leading to the launch of our SUPA range for dairy farming last year and to plaudits for innovation. We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to find our products – especially in the current climate, where there’s the potential for disruption in the supply chain. Being awarded RIDBA membership makes it simpler for the clients we want to work with to find our products and it reassures them that we offer quality and excellence.”
One of RIDBA’s featured case studies – the headline project for the Centre for Dairy Science Innovation, University of Nottingham, in the RIDBA Livestock category – was undertaken by Haston Reynolds, Chartered Surveyors who specified Wolfenden’s agricultural concrete products throughout the build.
