Fully Bespoke Project Managed Service
Should you want Woodchester Cabinet Makers to fully project manage your kitchen project, the process starts with a visit to our showroom and workshop to meet Tim Buckingham on a day and time previously arranged. This will be followed on another day by him visiting your home to advise on a lay-out and take measurements. Alternatively, Tim could visit you first and then you visit us on another day sometime after.
After this process and after you having answered all the relevant questions such as, style of cabinetry, choice of appliances and worktops etc, we can provide you with our estimate for your project and some three dimensional visuals to show you what your kitchen could look like.

After these processes, should you wish Woodchester Cabinet Makers to do your kitchen project, our payment terms are 20% plus vat on confirmation of order and prior to final design. After this Tim will then produce hand-drawn to-scale elevations of all the cabinetry and these will be the working drawings used to order all the materials needed and for the cabinet makers to construct your cabinetry. Before the materials are ordered, a further payment of 20% plus vat is required.
Woodchester Cabinet Makers will be project managing your kitchen project and you have the choice of us liasing with all the relevant trades that we have used over the years and we know and trust, such as plumbers, electricians, plasterers and flooring contractors or we liaise with your own. Once you have decided on this we will need to meet the various trades at your house to talk through what needs to be done so they can provide estimates for their work. After this we will talk about when we will be starting your project , after which we can provide you with your schedule of works.
They day before we arrive to start fitting your cabinetry a further payment of 40% plus vat is due and this is followed by a final payment of 20% plus vat at the end of the project.

The above schedule of works is based on you having a new floor and granite/quartz worktops so as you can see the whole process can take up to 6 weeks. Obviously this process can be a lot quicker if you do not need a new floor and maybe having a wooden worktop and not granite.
