Bespoke Joinery and Doorsets at De Montford University

Job title:
De Montford University, Leicester.

Client:
Balfour Beatty plc.

Value:
£1.4m

Programme:
31 weeks

Detail:

Our works included over 700 high performance ceiling height laminate faced doorsets and a large second fix joinery package.

The main interest to us however was the design, manufacture and installation of a “Harry Potter” staircase. Having been redesigned frequently the staircase consisted of a series of flights of steps each over laying each other all in different directions and different plains. The staircase was finished in solid Oak and laminate faced panels.

At the time we commented: “if you can draw it, we can make it!”

On this occasion we had to put our money where our mouth is, and here are the results. A totally stunning complexed feat of engineering with the highest calibre of skilful installation that has created the outstanding feature in this state of the art global learning centre.
