Project Overview

The project was split into 2 phases over 3 years. The carpentry work included repairing ceiling joists, floor joists and floor boards. Existing door frames and doors were eased and adjusted for new ironmongery. A number of external windows were replaced with new. At one point we had 150 carpenters on site.
