Bespoke Joinery Manufacturers

We’ve supplied bespoke joinery products of all shapes, sizes and quantities to a variety of refurbishments, some listed/heritage buildings and all other developments. On the occasions our work has been recommended for the traditional joinery involved with restoration projects, the quality, skill and precision of our joiners comes into its own.

The intricacy and complexity in the joinery work on some period properties is not for the appointment of any joiner. Our experienced time served joiners have the essential knowledge and traditional skills that are essential to take on the technical and detailed joinery.

The rejuvenation of the high end student accommodation which is the Melting Point has been completed.

The units were all in use for the duration of the works, with other students passing the site on a regular basis, therefore Health & Safety considerations were of paramount importance to us throughout the works.

The beautiful building dating back to 1878, which is now a number of private apartments, has had a series of different external repairs completed upon it to bring it back to it’s former glory whilst ensuring it is watertight and weatherproof.

The works have been completed to the usual high standards and quality levels but with modern products giving the building additional protection than traditional materials.

 

 

Howzat!

Howzat!

The Myrtle Tavern in Meanwood has been transformed during a blisteringly fast refurbishment – 21 days from design briefing to serving drinks!

The site has been rejuvenated with a traditional ‘cosy’ vibe that has, due to the locality of the cricket pitch, a minor sport theme infused within the design.

The bespoke corky ball and wicket screens are complemented by the cricket bat balustrade as well as the signed memorabilia that is positioned within the main bar. The clean stonework and oak flooring lead you to the new, ‘old’ back bar with its many tantalising spirits tastefully displayed under the new copper lighting.

New cosy pockets and corners have been created to allow customers to enjoy the space in a way that they could not before.

After an introduction and a successful tender submission. We have been awarded a contract to manufacture, deliver and install replacement timber windows & doors to various properties in York.

The project is within a conservation area and will see the delicate removal of existing timber windows, replacing them with new bespoke energy efficient A* rated alternatives.

Careful planning and a high level of customer care will be implemented, providing a constant source of communication with the residents, adding to another successful social housing scheme.

 

No disturbance to trade!

No disturbance to trade!

No disturbance to trade was the client’s main requirement whilst undertaking the full recovering of the existing supermarket unit’s roof.

As a live functioning supermarket the last thing that the multi national client wanted to have was any issues or loss of trade whilst we completed the recovering of the existing roof.

Works were completed seamlessly to ensure no loss to trade, minimum disturbance to staff & customers whilst ensuring zero H&S risks.

 

 

 

 

Towering success

Towering success

The Towers, a grade II Listed building, was conserved, restored and repaired over a number of months by RDF specialists.

The building, that was built for the governor of Armley jail in 1871, has a mixture of natural stone and reconstituted artstone.

Stone was quarried specifically for the works with masons carving each piece of stone by hand to ensure a perfect match to the piece that it was due to be replaced.

Casts were taken of the heavily deteriorated balustrade and lion details which had to then be painstakingly re-fabricated and carved offsite to allow a mold to be created. Casts were then taken from the molds, the new artstone pieces produced, cleaned up and installed onsite.

The building was fully repointed prior to the existing rainwater pipes and metalwork being overhauled with sections being replaced as required.

Delicate timber repairs were undertaken onsite and also in the RDF workshop to rejuvenate the existing timber work present onsite before being redecorated.

All the works were discussed and agreed with the local Conservation Officer through detailed onsite discussions prior to them being completed.

Listed Building Show

Listed Building Show

RDF’s craftsmen were on hand at the Listed Building Show in Harrogate to provide expert advice, display our bespoke products and complete a demonstration on how to complete resin repairs to damaged timberwork.

The resin repair display was received with great success with many people commenting that they didn’t realise that it could be used as extensively as we demonstrated.

Many timber items that were previously thought to be beyond repair can now be saved through using this technique which is preferred by Conservation Officers.

The display included information on previously completed Conservation and Restoration projects as well as our in house project management service that we provide.
