We have recently completed manufacture and installation of oak bi-folding doors and internal doors at the prestigious 3 Merchant Square apartments development in Paddington, London. Visit the website for the development here http://www.merchantsquare.co.uk/

We were delighted to be part of this luxury development, having been subcontracted by one of our London clients, Atlantic Contracts, to undertake the work for the main contractor, Mace.

Chester Train Station

Traditional sliding sash windows have been installed in buildings throughout the UK for centuries. Despite the age of the design, their popularity has never diminished and they are still installed today in everything from small domestic dwellings to large public buildings. Buckingham Palace and Downing Street are two of the finest examples of buildings that are fitted with the sliding sash.

Fortunately this is a window that has stood the test of time whilst adding great character to the buildings they occupy. The recognition of this character means they are commonly insisted upon in listed buildings and conservation areas by local authorities, but they’re also extremely popular with the general public and have even proved a favourite in newly constructed homes. However, although the sliding sash window is almost certainly the most durable of timber windows ever made, nothing lasts forever and they must eventually be replaced.

We are regularly approached by clients who are in the first stages of planning or construction of their own houses to manufacture many of the items they wish to incorporate into their homes.

Quite often a client will approach us for a specific product then decide to employ our services for the majority of their joinery works which was the case with Mr & Mrs Ikin of Culcheth.

The Royal Hotel

We have supplied the majority of required joinery items for the Royal Hotel in Waterloo for many years. The hotel is situated in a conservation area overlooking Crosby marina and the Liverpool estuary. This prominent position affords guests beautiful views and sunsets, and has proven a popular venue for many wedding parties as well as business travellers and tourists. Although such a location provides spectacular scenery, it also means that the building is exposed to the full force of nature. Subsequently maintenance is an ongoing project.

When the time came to replace the hotels traditional sash windows and elegant front façade the hotels owner employed our services to manufacture everything in timber. Being in a conservation area, modern products such as UPVC or aluminium are completely taboo. Even if these materials were permitted for use they would not have bonded well with the hotels traditional character so wood was the only viable option.
