“Your bespoke joinery came highly recommended by a renowned Wood Scientist and technical building consultant”
Following a successful tender submission, incorporating our detailed drawings and interpretations of how we would counteract the dramatic weather dynamics, a meeting was arranged at our Leeds Head Office with other specialists from around the UK, to discuss possibilities. We manufactured an operational prototype to show the client, not only the products but the finishes that would be applied.
After a series of further consultations, and ensuring the client’s satisfaction. We were appointed to manufacture, finish, deliver and install the bespoke Idigbo windows, doors and louvered venting systems.
The windows have an innovative 2 sensor, louvered venting system incorporated. There is an internal sensor to control internal humidity, external moisture sensor detects rain in the air, and this allows the vents to open or close depending on the Caribbean climate.
Once all items have been carefully loaded into a container and shipped, to their new home. Our skilled craftsman will then fly out to install them into the new built location.
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.
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.
