Point A Dublin: Multifaceted Manufacturing
For the first #ManufacturingMonday of 2022, we wanted to share a manufactured joinery project which was recently featured in Premier Hospitality magazine.
Our talented factory team created a mixture of bedroom and public area case goods for this new Dublin hotel.
Our Manufacturing Manager, Michael Hillman, took us through the project:
The bedroom case goods were manufactured on a supply only basis and shipped over to Dublin. Our team – as usual going above and beyond – created bespoke videos and installation manuals, to aid with fitting and any future adjustments.
Using a mixture of materials including Finsa, Egger & Abet laminates; Walnut hardwood (stained to match laminate); powder coated mild steel; mirror; and Sunbury Fabric, our team created a range of high quality pieces. The range we supplied included various sizes of headboards and bedside storage, vanity and headboard mirrors, vanity tables and room entry panels.
We negotiated this project pre-Brexit, so had to navigate a number of challenges including adapting to the new regulations and rules to ensure the goods were delivered successfully – and our courier company were a great help with this.
Case goods for the public areas were manufactured in our 30,000 sq. ft. factory and then fitted by our own workshop joiners. Our Manufacturing Manager and Workshop Manager both visited the site to oversee the works and ensure the highest quality standards were being achieved.
Again our team worked with a wide range of materials, including American White Oak Veneered MDF with FR clear lacquer (lift lobby); various Egger laminates; American White Oak Hardwood; powder coated mild steel; blackened mild steel; glass; mirror; and tiles. The wide selection of items supplied included lift lobby panels for every floor; reception pods; info + community wall; glass display wall; hanging planters; window planters; buffet counter; tech table; island unit; coffee counter – front & rear (the main bar); and various seating.
From Setting Out, who met pressured deadlines to deliver drawings and cutting lines, to our workshop team who created, finished, packaged and, for some items, installed these pieces: the whole team overcame challenges to deliver another high quality project.
