The Brief

Hillsons fitted carpentry and flooring in the 14 affordable apartments (over three floors) that are part of the scheme. Flooring was a danskin sub-floor with Amtico strips laid on top, and carpets in the hallways. Inside each flat, MJ Hillson teams fitted skirting, kitchens shower doors and bathroom cabinets, plus a mixture of fire doors and normal doors. In the communal areas, we fitted flooring, skirtings, architraves and carpets.

The Approach

What began as a straightforward project encountered an unexpected challenge. We completed the project within our expected timeframe of September-December 2023. However, returning to site in January 2024, we discovered a leak affecting six of the apartments. After other contractors had ripped out and replaced walls, we came in to re-do all the floors, kitchens and doors, wrapping up the project in spring 2024.
