We're seeing more and more building companies starting up as a result of the main sites shutting down. One of the main reasons our enquiries are so high is because people are relying on recommendation to find a company like us who they can trust to do a quality job at a sensible price.
Kettering, Northants (PRWEB) February 14, 2009
Kettering based joinery and building specialist, Birch Stone, has just announced that it has secured an important £180,000 joinery contract at a luxury Edwardian stone house build in Northamptonshire.
The specialist joinery skill of Birch Stone's in-house craftsmen was the key to comfortably securing the contract, fending off stiff competition. Steve Hill, Birch Stone's Managing Director, says, "To win a project of this calibre in a good financial climate would have been a great success story but with the economic conditions as they are, this is even more significant. Not only are we grateful for winning the project but we're excited at the opportunity to add our craftsmanship to such a prestigious build."
Work is already underway to manufacture hardwood windows with 35mm of solid oak window boards and all external and internal doors, including the solid oak main entrance doors. The property's unique high ceiling design demands that all the doors are tailor made to ensure the correct room proportions. One set of bespoke French doors will lead to the swimming pool area while another two sets of French doors access the conservatory overlooking a lake. Another special feature will be the oak staircase built in traditional cut string style with bespoke turned spindles.
All evidence indicates that Birch Stone, who offer new and existing clients a free planning and build regulation advice service, are rallying despite the financial crisis; their customer enquiries are up 29% on the same time last year. Steve Hill says, "We're seeing more and more building companies starting up as a result of the main sites shutting down. One of the main reasons our enquiries are so high is because people are relying on recommendation to find a company like us who they can trust to do a quality job at a sensible price."
