JP Corry and International Timber put their product knowledge and expertise to the test at the new Grassy Meadows Dementia Resource Centre in London.
The collaborative approach enabled both suppliers to meet the hardwood requirements for the impressive centre. Working closely with main contractors Farrans Construction, JP Corry and International Timber provided a new cutting-edge Iroko handrail. With the client specifying a durable and aesthetically pleasing handrail, it was agreed that Iroko Hardwood would be the perfect material choice for the centre to ensure the highest standards were met.
Four different profiles of handrails were provided, a different profile for each floor of the building. This unique design allows patients of the Grassy Meadows complex to distinguish which floor they are on depending on the handrail design - an innovative approach which perfectly showcases the attention to detail delivered by JP Corry and International Timber.
Throughout the project, International Timber liaised regularly with Farrans Construction to ensure specification was met and samples provided in a timely manner. Despite the straightforward nature of the contract, the task wasn’t without its challenges. Bespoke lengths of product were required within tight timelines however, the long term relationship between JP Corry and International Timber allowed products to be delivered direct to site on time.
Tommy Gordon, Sales Manager JP Corry said: "We were delighted to have the opportunity to be involved in such a unique project and are very happy with the end result. This job is an excellent example of the high standards and attention to detail we are committed to offering. We’re looking forward to working with Farrans and International Timber again on future projects.”
