While many customers employ us on a single job basis, we also offer our services on a project basis. This is extremely cost-effective where there are large amounts of different cosmetic repairs to be carried out or where major resurfacing or finishing is required. Major projects that we have worked on include:
Mann Island, Liverpool. £16,800,000 development by BAM Construction
A very large project and indicative of our capacity. This involved fine finishing across apartment blocks, retail spaces, restaurants and offices.During Plastic Surgeon’s £250,000 project, we repaired worksurfaces, tiles, bathroom fittings, door frames, granite interiors and damaged metal window frames.
During the project, Plastic Surgeon helped BAM achieve its goal of halving waste to landfill, by using its VisibilITy reporting system to demonstrate how much potential construction waste had been saved from landfill by repairing. Plastic Surgeon saved BAM 54.7 tonnes of waste from landfill.
Cynon Valley Neighbourhood Hospital – £73 million scheme by Vinci Construction.
Addressing all the surfaces damaged across the 18,000 square metre building caused by the movement of materials and trades placed considerable workload on Vinci. Plastic Surgeon’s finishing contract, worth £143,000, helped to keep the project on schedule. Finishers removed scratches on glass, filled and rubbed down a large percentage of polyester powder coated frames, before re-spraying and lacquering and repaired doors, handles, sanitaryware, worktops and IPS panels.
Morgan Sindall, Parkside Community College.
Plastic Surgeon repaired sandstone cills, chipped when scaffolding was removed, and scratches to powder coated metal frame windows. The Contracts Manager commented: “Although I had been aware of Plastic Surgeon being used by our company, this was my first experience of the specialist service. It seems a very efficient approach to accessing a one-stop shop for snagging or remedial work.”
Laing O’Rourke, Link 62 Data Centre
A £250,000 project to re-finish wall cladding in a warehouse the size of 12 football pitches, requiring multiple finishers on shift work patterns for 7 days a week.
University of Leicester, Crittall Windows
We carried out specialist recoating of over 180 steel windows to precise factory finish standards.
Asda store, Lancaster
We recoated 70 steel external wall cladding panels measuring 1200mm high by 6500mm wide. The panels suffered dents and scratches to the powder coat finish. We repaired them to exacting standards and exactly matched the colour specification to ASDA’s corporate colours, using specialist powered access equipment.
With our nationwide presence and the largest fully employed fine finishing team in the UK, we have the logistics and expertise to help, whatever the size of your project.
It took the Fine Finisher less than two days to complete the work and everyone, including BAM Construction and the University is completely happy with the way the doors now look. It has saved in the region of £4,000 for their replacement, plus the delay there would have been in re-ordering which could have run to weeks.
