Maintenance can be tricky when you don’t know who to call, but at Chapel we love nothing more than being asked to return to properties by clients to maintain their homes. It gives us a great deal of pride; Strafford House needed a fresh up, so we were delighted to paint the outside of the house & carry out a few window repairs.
Small projects, are just as important too & we have a small works team specialising in maintenance, small extensions, renovations & landscaping to name a few…
Rectory Lane – before & after photos of a beautiful garden make over. This consisted of removing the rotten summer house & overgrown borders, then 2 new decking’s were laid for the gazebo & shed, new fencing erected & paving laid. Fabulous entertaining area in a low maintenance garden.
We are delighted to announce we have won another Regional LABC Award for, ‘Best Residential Extension’ & are automatically entered into the National Finals to be held at The Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, London in January 2024. The extension was to a grade 2 listed house joining it to the reconfigured outbuildings to create an amazing kitchen, breakfast room. More details in our projects folder, ’Thorpe Hall.’ We would like to say a big thank you to Simon & Caroline for allowing us to be put forward for the award, Emily, (who is our port of call @ ESC Building Control Team Leader) for submitting our entry & to everyone at Chapel who work as a team to produce quality workmanship.
September was a busy month for us, we also held our annual Go-Karting Competition, this year our winner of ‘The Baz (memorial) Cup’, was Andrew Soames, 2nd came Max Poole & in 3rd place was Sam Garwood, well done guys. A highly competitive but fun night which ended with some great food, thanks go to Anglia Go-Karting.
This month sees our Plumbing & Heating Department gain their MCS Accreditation.
MCS is a qualification in renewable energy products and installers, enabling us to install and service air source and ground source heat pumps. One of our engineers is 1 in only 4000 in the UK that has this qualification, along with an accreditation with Mitsubishi Electric, the market-leading brand of heat pumps made here in the UK.
“CONGRATULATIONS” to Tom on qualifying as a Quantity Surveyor, he joined our team as an office administrator & buyer in 2016 & then embarked on a 5-year degree course at the Ruskin University attending on day release. He has worked & studied hard & deserves his new position in our Chapel team. Thanks must go to Rodney for all his help & continued support.
21st of May, Woodbridge held the gruelling 10K race, great turnout, fabulous weather & all the local establishments provided excellent food, drink & music.
Chapel entered a team with a surprise winner this year, Aaron (707) who has always been the fastest & loves a bit of competition was beaten by Charlie (706), his excuse was…. he has become a 1st time daddy!
Welldone Charlie… till next year.
