East Midlands manufacturer provides bespoke kitchens for new residential scheme

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading furniture and fitout specialists to the residential sector, has completed a contract to provide bespoke, contemporary kitchens for a new development in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Awarded by main contractor Clegg Construction, the contract for Gilder’s Yard was for 158 high specification kitchens which were manufactured and installed by Deanestor.

Developed for Grainger plc, the UK’s largest listed residential landlord, Gilder’s Yard comprises the renovation of a three-storey Grade II listed former jewellery factory and the construction of three further blocks to provide high quality apartments for rent.

There were three kitchen configurations – island, L-shaped and single wall – and two colour palettes for the cabinets – platinum white and graphite grey, both with white quartz worktops and contrasting stainless steel handles.

The ‘loft’ finish and open plan island kitchen layout were developed for the apartments in the listed building with the dark grey units designed to complement the exposed brickwork and surfaces.

According to Josh Barker, development manager at Grainger: “This was a complex regeneration project which is breathing new life into an historic building in Birmingham’s thriving Jewellery Quarter.

“We recognise the importance of quality, durable kitchens that are designed to meet the requirements of our residents, and we are pleased that the Deanestor team helped us to achieve this at Gilder’s Yard.”

Tim Croft, project manager for Clegg Construction, said: “The interior design of this scheme was a prominent part of the architecture and was designed to complement the retained exterior which has large picture windows that increase visibility of the internal features such as the kitchens. The new build wings are a modern interpretation of the listed elevation in fenestration and materials.

“We were confident in Deanestor’s ability to deliver the quality required for the project and in a short timeframe. Their design team performed well with a good level of detailing and technical expertise. They were able to accommodate variations in layout whilst achieving as much standardisation for manufacturing efficiency as possible. The kitchens have been finished to a high standard.”

Deanestor also supplied and installed the integrated appliances for each kitchen.
