The refurbishment of this grade 2 listed building meant much of the ironmongery had to be in line and match the existing patterns, some of which had been in-situ for over 100 years. Working closely with a Midlands based manufacturer who still had the original patterns and designs, we were able to provide the client with exact replacements to those that were installed originally as well as the ability to refurbish and refinish some existing products we were unable to supply. We also provided a full supply and installation of power assisted operators to a number of doors in order for the building to meet equality act requirements.
