Cooper Dean Estate
Project name: Cooper Dean Estate
Product: Farmscape Anthracite (Profile 6)
Contractor: PH Hardwill Ltd
Client: Cooper Dean Estate Family Partnership
In 2012 the decision was made to invest in the farm, owned by the Cooper Dean Estate family partnership, near Beaminster. The buildings on the farm had not been invested in since the 1970s so plans were drawn up for a new cubicle house, collecting yard, feed passage and straw yard, increasing cow numbers from 150 to 300. The proposed site for the new building was to be dug into the hill behind the existing unit, minimizing the visual impact. Farmscape Anthracite was chosen for the roof of the unit as the dark colour perfectly matched the roofs of the existing farm buildings adjacent to the new development.
