Morland say it is not luck to get three cherries in a row
|On a recent student accommodation project in Nottingham the client wanted to differentiate their accommodation with a superior fit out. The architects choose a cherry veneer for the doors and frames and Morland Fit Out Products were invited by Construction Services (Mansfield) Ltd to tender for the door-sets.|
Andrew Warren Commercial Director for Morland takes up the story:
"The wall thickness was significant and we quoted offering two choices; a solid section frame, and one based on veneer wrapped MDF. It was a perfect example of the impact veneer wrapping can make to door-set projects as the saving between the two options was well over £10,000 just from using wrapped MDF rather than solids. Morland carry a large inventory of wood grain finishes and were able to give the architect a choice of effects to best match the cherry door veneer.
Once the finish was agreed we were able to get into production straight away and avoid the delays often associated with the availability of materials for hardwood specifications. 261 fully finished cherry doorsets were delivered to site in full on time, allowing the building to be handed over to the client for the start of the academic year as scheduled."
Mr S Hunt, Managing Director of Construction Services (Mansfield) Ltd said “It is always an issue in the school holidays to get manufactured joinery on time, amidst factory shutdowns. Morland performed well in terms of the commercial choices they gave at the start and the quality of product and service delivered on the contract”
