We’ve had one of our busiest years to date! From working in some incredible locations to creating completely bespoke systems, our projects have had it all.
And with 2022 now coming to a close, we asked a few members from our sales and projects teams to reflect on the last 12 months, and let us know the jobs that really stood out for them.
Lloyd Palmer – Project Manger
EBRD for sure, it had everything! Manual and motorised Shy Shading blinds, curtains, angled blinds, a bespoke control system, custom metalwork, special Kvadrat fabric and a chain driven motor track by Triple E Ltd in the auditorium, which reduced the stack size by 75%. This really was a masterpiece in office fit out!
Dan Voller – Junior Estimator
The Alchemist in Liverpool. The requirement was for a custom printed blind to cover the servery hatch when not in use. Lloyd and I had some problem solving to do with how to split the hatch area’s irregular shape whilst keeping the pattern on the blind and how the blinds could be controlled without having dangling cords across the hatch. We came up with a solution of 3 blinds installed side-by-side with detachable crank control, and were really happy with the results!
Richard Reeves – Estimator
Old Bromley Town Hall was probably my top project of 2022. Not because it was a high value project or we had to come up with a creative design, but some great project management from Callum Barry emphasised Waverley’s values down to a tee! He was in constant communication with all involved to deliver a great project.
Ian King – Project Manager
Possibly the most challenging project of 2022 for me was the curtains and tracks for the RIBA Exhibition, as the job required bespoke printing on several panels and a very quick turnaround. But thanks to our curtain workroom facility, the curtains which comprised of several printed panels each, were put together with utmost care and precision.
The overall effect of the curved tracks and curtains was stunning.
Callum Barry – Project Manager
I will choose Park View House. It was a high end job with a real mixture of blinds to all windows, including motorised and manually operated systems with a mix of sheer and blackout fabrics.
It stood out as it was fitted with real care and coordination, with Graham Hardcastle leading our on site team. And the highlight was an integrated blackout blind with a fully recessed headbox and side channels.
Cameron Davie – Senior Estimator
280 Bishopsgate for me. Although it was not overly challenging from an estimating point of view, we developed our relationship with the Quantity Surveyor on the job which is of paramount importance to us! Lloyd Palmer also did a great job as the PM.
Simon Gould – Project Manager
I think my project would be this multiple dwelling unit.
This job included 62 chain-operated roller blinds, 65 sheer wave curtains and 65 blackout curtains used with a wide range of fabrics to match the colour schemes! Kvadrat Shade systems were used throughout the project.
We’ve also been incredibly busy away from all of our projects this year, as you can see here:
A huge thank you to all of our invaluable clients who have supported us throughout 2022. Have a great break and we’ll see you in 2023!
