Visitors to our factory and showrooms here in Yorkshire will have noticed a few changes to our office recently. When we first moved here, more than 12 years ago, we didn't have time to worry too much about the floor that was put down in the office, our priority was to get our systems up and running as soon as possible. We think that now is a good time for an update and to take the opportunity to showcase our beautiful Engineered Wood Flooring.
The British Hardwoods office is a lovely size (45m2 ) but we perhaps were not making the best use of the area. We decided to split our large rectangular office into two horseshoe shaped sections to provide us with much needed desk space. Our Managing Directory, Tony Fillingham, set the renovations in motion, and the following photos show his step-by-step process to date:
All the work to the office so far has been undertaken solely by Tony - showing his all-round versatility. Despite a busy order book, our flooring department have managed to manufacture our new Engineered Classic Grade Oak Flooring. We are always so busy that trying to find an appropriate time to lay it so as to cause minimal disruption is quite a challenge. Once the new floor is laid, we also plan to change all our desks to our own handmade oak desks - which should look truly beautiful.
We are now looking forward to stage 2 and will keep our blog updated with new photos when we have them. Thank you to all our customers who have called in, for bearing with us whilst our renovations are in progress.
