The site refurbishment is coming to an end. The site has been abused for 6 months while the construction company carried out a major refurbishment. The doors frames have been repelleted and shaved flat

The tilers spilled adhesive on the faces of the doors. There are gouges and scratches in the woodwork. The building contractor contacted us knowing that the client would never accept a handover in this state.

As usual we attend the site induction on the first morning. We know that our RAMS (risk and method statements) will be in order as not only are they written by our IOSH trained manager but also many of our polishers are also site safety supervisors so have the authority to amend as necessary on site.

The size of the task at hand: About 350 doors in total!

The first site agent says just do the door frames as the doors are being done by another company. Then another agent says do all the doors and frames. As usual, after an hour or so, they come and see what we’ve done and agree we should do everything as they are amazed at the results.

We sent these pictures to our client who emails back:

The site foremen of a different section come to us asking if we can go to their section next? Our response “Yes!”

Can you provide more polishers? “Yes!”

Can you touch out the damaged Lino flooring? “Yes!”

What about the solid timber flooring? “Of course!”

What about the laminated and refinished desks and doors can you repair those?…. “Yes we can!”
