Bespoke Commercial Joinery, Bespoke Joinery Manufacture and CAT B Office Fit-out
Project background and description
Allstar Joinery was appointed as the main commercial joinery subcontractor including bespoke manufacturer and office fit-out for this project by principal contractor GHI Contracts Ltd.
The purpose of the project was to complete the internal fit-out of the sixth floor of the Garment Factory, an exciting new studio space to accommodate Threesixty Architecture’s continued growth.
The programme had a very intensive timescale with minimal lead in time. The following challenges needed to be addressed:
- Vast amount of works to be completed in a very short timescale.
- The attention to detail required to meet the exacting standards of the architectural design and the build.
- Bespoke reception desk with integrated Corian® counter top.
- Bespoke presentation screens.
- Bespoke birch veneer featured wall panelling.
- Bespoke glazed cabinet and shelving
- Bespoke bench storage seating.
- Several fixed bespoke birch veneer desks.
- Bespoke presentation pods.
- Bespoke birch veneer shelving throughout.
- Bespoke Corian® worktops to main kitchen and island.

The solution formulated and carried out was as follows:
• This was an eight week programme of works. As always it was a fast moving programme.
• Integrated the Allstar Joinery team in place within a quick response time.
