Bespoke Doors – Facilitating Regeneration

A brand new, high-specification apartment block in Manchester has been supplied with a range of customised doorsets by Bespoke Complete Solutions. Nuovo Apartments, located in Ancoats, forms part of a large regeneration scheme in the area and, when fully completed, will boast 166 new residences, of which 40 will be dedicated Affordable Homes. The ground floor of the building will be used for commercial development.

Ancoats takes its name from the Old English ana cots, meaning ‘lonely cottages’. Located just outside the city centre, Ancoats suffered economic decline for many years until its heritage became more widely recognised and the area began to see a sharp rise in investment. Now a desirable place to live and work, Ancoats continues to grow in importance with the development of Nuovo Apartments, which comprises a 13-storey tower accompanied by two smaller blocks.

The main contractor on the Nuovo Apartments project is Sir Robert McAlpine, a leading civil engineering company in the UK with over 140 years of experience. With a diverse and impressive project portfolio, ranging from the Olympic Stadium to the Eden Project, Sir Robert McAlpine insist on materials of impeccable, superlative quality in their work in order to maintain their unmatched reputation.

Sir Robert McAlpine chose Bespoke Comple Services to provide all of the external entrance doors and frames, manufactured in solid Iroko to specific requirements, based on our own impressive reputation for supplying quality products manufactured with close attention to detail, a critical factor on such an important and complex project.

All of the bespoke doors have now been supplied to Nuovo Apartments and we look forward to hearing more about the ongoing project.Subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you never miss out on any of our updates.

TK Maxx Refurbishments – BCS Doorsets Supplied

Bespoke Complete Services are working in close partnership with Suffolk-based building contractor Albany Interiors to supply a range of doors to several new TK Maxx stores. The latest delivery of successfully-completed doorsets, to TK Maxx in Hull, marks the second of five stores we will be supplying doors to; plans are currently being made to manufacture further doorsets for 16 more stores around the UK during 2014.

TK Maxx is the European trading name for the American store chain TJ Maxx that was founded in 1976, and was renamed to avoid it being confused with Europe-wide retailer TJ Hughes, with which TJ Maxx have no affiliation. Within Europe, TK Maxx have more than 300 stores and, as well as selling the clothing they are most well-known for, also supply a wide range of furniture, toys and beauty accessories. The company participate in a wide range of charity work, most notably being the only retailer chosen to stock Red Nose Day t-shirts for Comic Relief.

All of the doorsets supplied to TK Maxx feature our severe-duty rated solid timber cores and are faced with primed, heavy-duty foil wrap. Each door will sit perfectly in a solid rebated timber frame which, factory-primed, is of a 45mm section with varying wall depths. The doors to be used in the store area have been faced with high-pressure laminate which, in contrasting colours of cream and brown, will offer a pleasing aesthetic to customers. In areas where there is potential for damage, such as busy stockrooms, the doors have been fitted with the pvc edge-guards often used in hospital doorsets to provide added protection from bumps and bangs from transportation trolleys.

We look forward to continuing our work with Albany Interiors to provide quality doorsets for TK Maxx stores. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive regular updates on this and other work from Bespoke Complete Services.
