I carry out project managed bathroom fitting in Leeds.
Please see here for more details or continue reading for a case study of a recent installation.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any ‘before’ photos so it may have looked better before than after for all you know!
However, it doesn’t and here’s why.
Although the layout was kept more or less the same, we made the following improvements:
This involved chasing the pipework into the wall before tiling over it.
You can see the shower & basin pipes protruding from the wall as well as the basin waste. The height & position of all these pipes is very carefully worked out at 1st fix stage to ensure the correct positioning of the shower & basin at 2nd fix. e.g. the height of the basin is set at height to suit the user.
The plumbing & tiling work was co-ordinated so that the shower would finish in the exact centre of the shower tray whilst still being centred on the feature border tile (see above).
Again, I forgot to take a picture of the finished shower but it was similar to this one above (sorry!)
The finished bathroom is a clean & contemporary room which makes better use of the space available (which was 110cm x 280cm in total.)
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, plasterer & tiler, plumber, 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.
