6. Installation

Fitting is a game of three-dimensional chess played at high speed. The key is good planning and preparation.” Angus Simpson, Director and Project Manager.

Fitting is another team effort. Cataloguing packaging labelling; deliveries in quantities to suit the demands of site; Project Managers organising, marshalling, ensuring the integration of fittings with furniture so that the design intent is fully achieved; installers carefully assembling the work, fitting it to the building where required. And once signed off, everything protected.

7. Aftercare

"In 2013 I chose William Garvey to make all my joinery. They were a delightful company to work with and there was communication every step of the way. From the technical drawings to installation I can’t fault them. Over the years since installation, I have had items damaged and William Garvey have always been there to help, advise and fix all issues for me. I would have no issues recommending them to anyone who wants a first class product and a first class service. They care and their products are of a high quality and made to last. Seven years later all my William Garvey joinery and furniture look as they did the day they were installed." Client, Hampstead, London
