Newsletter 8: Cre8 Joinery Solutions is one year old!

Mon, 2012-11-26

 

Cre8 Joinery Solutions celebrates its 1st birthday!

The re-branded Cre8 Joinery Solutions – formerly Washroom Joinery – is twelve months old this month – and what a ride it’s been, encompassing a brand new website at www.cre8joinery.co.uk and a shiny new 32-page brochure, available for download or on request NOW.
 
“Cre8 joinery Solutions in Abridge offers a prompt and reliable service. Couldn't fault them, would recommend to anyone.”
 
In the rush of running a business it’s all too easy to overlook what’s been achieved – perhaps that’s why there is no one more surprised and delighted than us that Cre8 Joinery Solutions is now a year old – though, of course, under our previous trading name Washroom Joinery we have been delivering high-end joinery solutions, office fit outs and refurbishments across London and the UK for more than a decade.
 

12 months of joinery excellence

 
Back in November/December 2011, everything kicked off with the unveiling of our brand new website at www.cre8joinery.co.uk - which now includes engaging videos and stunning slideshows of joinery jobs, as well as details of our innovative products such as Qubewall ® (also known as Storewall), Duraglas ® plus the Cre8 Joinery Soft Furniture Range – specifications for which are available as downloads in a couple of clicks, so you can incorporate them into your own client presentations.
 
Not content with a new identity and website, the same month saw Cre8 Joinery appoint a new Manufacturing Manager in Michael Brookes, who joined us with 20 years experience under his belt and the achievement of generating a £35 million turnover for his previous employer.
 
Our second month in existence saw the official launch of Qubewall® - raising the benchmark for what is achievable in storage for the workplace and rest area. Also known to the industry as Storewall or storage wall, Qubewall® is available as a standard product in melamine faced MDF with PVC edges. Bespoke and custom versions in many other finishes are also available.
 
December 2011 also saw Cre8 Joinery Solutions’ first appearances on Twitter and Facebook – providing a social media platform via which clients can keep up to date with product launches and achievements on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. If you still haven’t caught up with us, then:

Successful joinery jobs at this time included specifying a number of Cre8 Joinery products for the construction of Tidemill Infant and Junior School in Lewisham, South East London, as well as partnering with the Washroom Washroom arm of our business to supply and fit age specific 'washrooms'.
 
Meanwhile in New Oxford Street, London, we delivered the full package and completed high-end joinery work on the reception area, lift fascias and lobby door sets for Castlewood House.
 
We also put the finishing touches to a joinery job for Nuffield Health Centre. This followed a brief to install striking male and female changing rooms and rest areas that would help visitors to feel comfortable and secure. We manufactured, supplied and fitted cubicles, showers, benching, lockers and vanity units.
 
2012 kicked off with the official launch of Duraglas®, the eye catching solution to maximise the passage of light in office and restaurant interiors – offering the double whammy of being both attention grabbing and hard wearing.
 
Competitively priced and of the highest quality, Duraglas® is available from Cre8 Joinery Solutions either on a supply-only basis or supply and install, as required. Where Duraglas® is being considered we recommend our involvement at the earliest design stage in order to address technical or aesthetic issues.
 
The start of the year also saw us complete a fit out for Frozen Yoghurt company Tutti Frutti at the flagship store just off the Strand, London. Cre8 Joinery Solutions supplied and installed subtly curved service counters and stylish, clean and contemporary self-service positions - our design and implementation described as ‘as sharp as a shot of juice from a lemon’.
 
February 2012 saw the launch of the Cre8 Soft Furniture Range - designed with the exacting requirements of the modern office environment in mind. To get a complete list of available furniture, visit the download section of www.cre8joinery.co.uk. Here you will also find explanatory documents, pdf files, plus sample JPEG images that can be inserted into architects' pitches and presentations to win potential work.
 
We additionally appointed a high-flying new Project Technical Assistant. Displaying a natural flair for drawing, the aptly named Michael Tattoo quickly mastered the technical mechanics of the construction industry – and joined us on the back of a BTEC National Diploma in Construction passed with Distinctions.
 
Considerable financial investments were also made in high-end 'bisTrack' management & manufacturing software. Cre8 Joinery has been using the high-end software to also help control costs, stock, and of course, assist in the elimination of waste. At the same time we upgraded our computers and took delivery of SolidWorks 3D CAD drawing package – repaying our investment by producing cutting lists and material take-offs, thus reducing time and waste on materials.
 
Our latest top-end office fit out was completed at 29 Ludgate Hill, London, in the shadow of St Paul’s. This showcased a range of our bespoke joinery solutions from the minute you enter its doors, delivering a clean and crisp entrance lobby with signature joinery detailing, feature wall and reception desk. See the result for yourself in our new Projects and Products brochure, available on request from our website or by calling 0845 470 3000.
 
As spring 2012 approached, Cre8 Joinery Solutions completed an office fit out at Canary Wharf in London’s Docklands, where we manufactured and installed new office suite joinery for Telecity Group on the fourth floor of Exchange Towers. Our second new office fit out of the month was for Zebedee Capital at 25 Great Pulteney Street, London.
 
The following months found us hard at work devising and designing our new brochure showcasing all of the above – plus launching our own YouTube channel.

One video came courtesy of a recent Cre8 collaboration with Morgan Lovell. Artist materials company ColArt wanted to create a multi use space that was more than just an office. To help deliver this, Cre8 Joinery Solutions was brought in to provide bespoke joinery, working alongside Morgan Lovell.
 
But perhaps the biggest news of recent weeks has been our glossy new brochure landing on desks with a reassuring ‘thump’, put together by creative agency US3 Media Ltd and providing inspiration for your own projects by showcasing our high-end joinery work – across London and the UK.
 
Hard copies are limited so give us a call on the above number or log onto our website www.cre8joinery.co.uk to make a request, where you’ll also find the brochure available to download electronically in easy–to-view PDF format.
