Capacity Key in Major Handrail Project for Edinburgh Hotel Project
Haldane UK has completed one of its most challenging projects for Edinburgh’s newest and most prestigious city centre hotels by manufacturing and installing luxury timber handrails for no fewer than 23 separate staircases in the property.
Faced with a challenging deadline to coincide with the city’s busy summer season and the world-famous Edinburgh Festival, the main contractor awarded Haldane UK the contract, stating, “Haldane was the only company which had the capacity, experience and expertise to meet the uncompromising specification of the client.”
The project involved the refurbishment and extension of two Category A Listed Buildings. Therefore extreme care had to be taken throughout the project to ensure any materials and restorations were carried out sympathetically and authentically.
Working closely with the main contractor, who liaised with the project stakeholders, Haldane UK called upon all of its timber machining capacity, including five 5-axis CNC machines, to deliver the project within the short lead times.
Haldane UK’s in-house installation teams and dedicated French Polishers were critical in delivering the project, as was the state-of-the-art technology the company has invested in.
The unpredictability of refurbishment projects can see slight nuances and unexpected conditions, which require alterations, reworks or additional components to planned works.
Haldane UK was able to use its 3D surveying equipment to digitise the environment and emailed directly to the programming team to allow components to be machined and despatched in a matter of hours.
The finished project befits one of the world’s leading hotel brands and is another iconic name in Haldane UK’s portfolio.
