"Merenda worked closely with our Design Manager to come up with the best quality product at the right cost which provided the solution to meet the unusual design specification on the Thanet House Project."
For the Thanet House project, Specialist Joinery needed to meet an unusual specification, with rows of trapezoidal wooden slats lining hallways. Normally, this would be machined from solid wood, or have the veneer pressed onto each surface separately.
Working closely with their project managers and designers, we were able to provide samples to ensure the piece would work with other components in the fit-out. Merenda Surface was able to part-supply the products to allow manufacturing to begin, and supply the remainder of the order as manufacturing proceeded.
“Samples were key in providing reassurance to the Design, Production and Fitout teams. Ensuring that the wrapped M.D.F. moulding being offered as the solution for the design challenge, would work and fit with all the other components. The supply of these samples was never an issue for the Merenda team.”
We supplied over 750 pieces at lengths varying from 2.44m to 3.1m. The project was completed on schedule, and the use of veneer wrapped MDF saved an estimated 30% over the use of solid wood.
