From the tender process through to hand over and complete satisfaction.

A vast experience of joinery project management is a key asset at HW.
Understanding and interpreting our customers requirements has become a standard practice.
Whether working with Architects, Surveyors, Contracts site management or the end user Client, we tailor each project with the best fit for all concerned.

Starting from the tender process each project has a key point of contact whose brief starts at the beginning  
  • Capturing project requirements managing the resources and timescales.
  • Developing and implementing the project management plan.
  • Leading and motivating the project delivery team.
  • Managing the risks, issues and changes on the project.
  • Monitoring and reporting progress against plan.
  • Managing the project budget.
  • Maintaining communications with our customer and the project organisation.
  • Closing the project in a controlled fashion to ensure success and satisfaction are achieved   













 

Value Engineering and Concept Development are all part of the process.

At HW we have pride and passion about the service we offer for the interpretation of our clients
design. 

From the start we develop the client’s concept to provide the manufacturing quality detail drawings that
are essential throughout the processes of production, installation and 
onward to maintenance and service.
Starting with a site survey and design review meeting, where we believe people should sit face to face and
actually talk about what’s required, (It may be old fashioned but we do know it
works). Design details are turned into full workshop construction drawings for
each project to review and approve the process. 

Each project is detailed by people who have joinery manufacturing experience and understand
constructional detail that matches with production methodology and who think
about how the items are constructed as they draw.

We are often asked to be involved with Value Engineering

VE is a systematic method to improve the "value" of
goods or products and services by using an examination of customer
requirements.

HW pays close attention to the value and therefore either
increases or improves the function or reduces the cost.

We are fully conversant with integrating all types of ancilliary materials. We can therefore produce
drawings incorporating all joinery works complete with metalwork, glass, stone
and plastics. 

Our drawing team offers a complete service which includes:
  • Full initial site survey
  • Drawings for approval, manufacture and site installation
  • Site liaison during the install process
  • Complete as built drawings
  • Cleaning and maintenance manuals

Drawings are produced to current standards and can be supplied in the client's preferred format.
