After client consultation and measuring, most of the manufacturing is done off site in our large and well equipped workshop, where the work is completed and finished, ready for installation. This work method ensures that the minimum disruption is created on the site, near completion time of the project. The completed work is carefully transported to site, wrapped in bubble wrap and blankets to ensure no damage is done and then installed on site with minimum time and disruption. Small adjustments and finished might be needed on site.

It is important that the “Upstairs” consultation takes place earlier on in the project to ensure that the best possible solution and product is chosen, but equally important that the work be done as late as possible in the project life cycle, to ensure that the high quality finishes is not damaged by other contractors still on site.

10:00am: Frans arrives on site, where the stair case is ready for the installation of the balustrade. The balustrade was manufactured and completed off-site and is now ready to be installed.

16:00pm: The installation is complete. Frans spends the absolute minimum amount of time on the site, preferring to manufacture and complete the balustrade in his workshop as far as is possible.
