This bathroom installation started on a Monday and finished the following Wednesday.
The work schedule was very tightly organised by a project manager (me) ensuring the work was done in the correct order to give the best finish in the shortest time.
It involved many tradesmen that the homeowner may have found difficult to source individually, and then organise into a tight schedule: On this job we had a joiner, tiler, plumber, electrician and a couple of labourers & painters – All project managed by a single source to make the process as smooth as possible.
Thanks for reading, give me a call if you would like a nice new bathroom in under 2 weeks or fill in the call back form on the right.
