An Estimator on behalf of a well-respected construction contractor contacted us at Castle Bespoke Joinery. The prospective client was enquiring in relation to a specialist project at the prestigious National Gallery in London. Drawings were supplied with as much information as possible, and a quote was promptly returned. As with most projects, things are always changing and evolving and we recognise this inevitability. In this case, we were soon asked to re-quote because of a number of changes, and we happily obliged.
We were then pleased to be advised by the contractor’s Surveyor to proceed and begin the early manufacturing stages. Material orders were placed, whilst our Specialist Designer attended site to meet with site management to discuss requirements in finer detail. Once this information was ascertained, our Specialist Designer was able to produce and provide systematic drawings to the contractor’s site manager for review, and to pass to their architect for inspection.
Once endorsed and approved in writing, manufacturing commenced. This included bespoke solid oak doors and hardwood doors supplied ready for painting. All of these ornate doors were required to blend with existing joinery and surroundings, some of which backdate to the building’s original construction almost a full two centuries ago in 1838.
Shown below are examples of stunning joinery post fitment at the prestigious and highly regarded National Gallery, London.
We at Castle Bespoke Joinery are extremely proud to undertake projects at such highly regarded Grade I-listed buildings. It is continued testament to our highly skilled workers and our ability to create perfection whatever the setting.
