Following a simple installation of a hand rail at a new customers house Philip was asked what else Manor Welding could do? After explaining their experience fabricating steel work for houses and industrial buildings they were asked to construct and fit structural steel, balconies, parkland fencing and a feature one-off copy of a victorian ornate ventilator in a small development in Rutland.
Following this successful project Manor Welding were then asked by the same developer Urban Rhythm to quote for constructing and installing the structural steel and decorative elements on a much larger development of the former 'Co-op Wheatsheaf Works' factory in Leicester. This vast grade II listed former works is being sympathetically converted into flats and apartments. Because of the scale of the development the work is being carried out in several phases and has a time span of a few years from inception to final completion.
Each piece of the development requires every section of steel to be bespoke to that particular flat or apartment. No two are the same, whilst there is a common theme running through the building given the nature of working with twenty first century design transplanting into Victoriana always bringing it’s own challenges.
Work is now progressing into the next phase, a new even larger section of the vast factory and with the potential to give Manor Welding some further unique challenges.
Modularity with the uniqueness of individual style and fit. Philip and his team are constantly tailoring their solutions to the exacting standards or the refurbishment. Designed to last and see the former factory have a long term future, as a rather stylish place to live in the heart of the City.
