We were delighted to see that our long standing clients at Beetham Nurseries made it into the recent Sunday Times 'UK's Best Garden Centres' List.
We have been working with the family run business for 20 years, working on a masterplan for the evolution of their site in the village of Beetham, Cumbria. The latest phase of the implementation of the scheme is a new 500sq.m retail building completed in 2019.
This is off the back of the successful tea rooms and other retail and office buildings completed previously.
Whilst we have our team working remotely at this time, we are still giving our clients the highest possible level of service. We have implemented social distancing and the use of PPE as necessary when we visit our active construction sites to keep our staff, clients and contractors safe during this challenging time.
You can still contact us on the usual office number of 01524 771377, or on our mobile numbers should you need to discuss your project.
From all of the MGA team, we hope that you are all staying well.

Even watching films or TV shows shot a few months or years ago feels oddly discomforting: did we really stand so close to oth...

Work has just started on site at a coach house renovation project in Carlisle. The coach house, which once formed part of a larger estate, is being sympathetically extended on the ground floor to create an open-plan kitchen/dining space that will afford extensive views across the gardens and beyond.
The extension will reflect the traditional detailing of the existing building with the addition of some contemporary features.
You don’t have to be a climate activist to want a more sustainable way of life. So why do UK tax breaks favour new-build developments over the restoration of heritage buildings?
Everybody recycles, right?

But lately, we’re also being asked to reflect more generally on how consumerism is helping to create the throw-away society that’s responsible for landing us with mountain...
