London Dock has seen a former working dock transform into a vibrant residential neighbourhood in historic Wapping. The development comprised of a mix of high specification new homes, retail outlets and restaurants.
"Merenda understood from the outset the complexity of the London Dock residential project, particularly the knowledge of the intricacies of using dyed wood veneer, matching and laying grain."
For the London Dock project, Principal Doorsets needed the wooden surfaces to match the dyed veneer specified by the architects. Previously, solid wood would be machined and dyed to match the veneer, a time consuming and inconsistent approach.
Working closely with their project managers and designers, Merenda Surface were able to provide door frames, stops and door lippings using the specified veneer. These pieces were finished with the same finishes as the flat panels, ensuring consistency across the build.
"Merenda took a hands-on approach throughout their organisation, never shirked their responsibilities and were always looking for solutions to any unforeseen issues that arose."
"We received samples, costings and lead times promptly, allowing us to deliver an excellent service to our client and in turn allowing them to rest easy in the knowledge that the supply chain was understanding of the needs of the project in both quality and delivery performance."
Using Merenda Surface solutions throughout the project, Principal Doorsets were able to complete a complicated project on time and on budget.
