Spring into action!
What happened to the start of 2019? It feels like one minute we were enjoying Christmas dinner we blinked and now we’re tucking into Easter eggs!
For the team at Powell Joinery the start of 2019 has been a busy affair. Here’s a quick update:
Work has started on our extension.
The walls are up and the lights are in! We’re around 3 weeks away from completing the new workspace.
The additional workshop area will allow us to manufacture on a larger scale and speed up production. It gives us a greater capacity to run projects side by side and ensure we continue to hit deadlines, delivering for our customers.
We are creating a new dedicated office for the business support team this will be the go-to hub for customers, suppliers and external contractors.
Speaking of contractors, we have used only local companies in the extension project and we would like to say a special thank you to the hard work and dedication of all involved this far… you guys have been awesome!
Projects and prospects
Our team have been busy completing numerous projects.
We won a large contract to refurbish the windows on campus at a local independent college, it went swimmingly and we achieved what should have been 5 weeks worth of work in just under 3 weeks, resulting in a very happy site manager.
We’ve completed a full renovation project on a large house on the outskirts of Leeds. We worked closely with the project manager to ensure the architectural joinery elements, including bespoke windows and an oak feature staircase were manufactured and installed to the highest standard.
Another substantial project we are concluding this month is the manufacture and fitting of several commercial staircases for an apartment development in the center of Harrogate. The staircases were manufactured and primed in-house here at Powell Joinery and then moved to site for fitting. The newels, handrails, base-rails and glass balustrade were all installed and finished onsite by our team.
On top of these projects we have completed 7 door and 5 full house window projects, 12 staircases, skirting and architrave, an ornate door porch...and that does not include the exceptional work from the finishing team!
We’ve all enjoyed the rest over the Bank Holiday…Now bring on the next few months!
