Over 100 properties completed at Waddesdon

With over 100 properties now completed at Waddesdon… 

…we are working on many more!

 
For well over 8 years we have been chosen by the Waddesdon estate to carry out refurbishment work on properties for the Rothschild Foundation in and around the stunning estate.  Work includes carpentry and flooring but on all the properties, our highly skilled painters and decorators have done an amazing job to repair and apply the products to conserve the buildings and their heritage.

We continue to work on properties within the Waddesdon Estate and also at their Offices and Apartments in Central London.

 
With the Estate’s portfolio of amazing historical buildings including residential homes in the village, farmhouses, the Village Hall and The Five Arrows Hotel that we have worked on, it is well worth a visit.

 
The manor house on the estate, Waddesdon Manor, was originally bought in 1874 and has been owned by the same family since, who have subsequently invested in further properties in the area to help conserve the heritage for future generations. This lovely country estate is open to the public and runs many family events throughout the year and has its own woodlands and parklands.

A Fantastic Five Star Review

Full Refurbishment Project Review

We carried out a full refurbishment project to this beautiful property in Chalfont St Giles. The work included coving, carpentry, electrics, security and painting and decorating.

Google 5* Review

Client:  Nick Riddle  Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value “Fantastic service from Roy and the ABK team. We engaged them originally to redecorate the interior of our house but the scope of the project evolved considerably as it went on. The team were responsive, creative and accommodating throughout with spotless attention to detail. We were kept very well informed at all stages and pricing for incremental work was done in a very transparent, fair manner. Andy, who was with the project from start to finish, did a fabulous job and came up with some excellent ideas and solutions for various finishing touches. Roy is a real pleasure to deal with, nothing is ever too much trouble and the project management was flawless. Professional friendly team who are real masters of their business. We would highly recommend them and will definitely be using ABK again.”

Waddesdon Woodwork Restoration – Case Study

Waddesdon External Decorations

External decorations to a beautiful historic property in Waddesdon. Upon inspection of the property, the team discovered heavy woodwork degradation to various areas. Our team worked diligently with the client to put a plan in place and restore the property.

Solution Implemented

We removed the rotten wood and then moulded a resin into these areas. Then prepared the rest of the woodwork and painted in a long-lasting protective paint in the heritage colour required.

Challenges Overcome

This was high level work and we used our access equipment in a safe manner to reach the areas. See our building section for a full range of trades for any refurbishment work https://www.abkltd.co.uk/more-than-painting/

Burnham Parish Council Offices – Case Study

External Painting to Burnham Parish Council Offices

External Decoration Burnham Park, Windsor Lane, Bucks.   Burnham being the home of the ancient woodland, Burnham Beeches.

Project Requirements

To clean and apply wood stain to give the building a refreshed look and adding further protection with as much longevity as possible.

Solution Implemented

We cleaned and emptied gutters of debris. Then cleaned the pre-finished soffits and fascias then our decorators prepared the existing timber cladding, beams, posts, rafters and columns and then applied a Sadolin woodstain to match the existing finish.

Challenges Overcome

To match the existing wood stain colour we tested a couple of colours first so the client could approve. We also had to work around the public on this project because as with many of these types of properties they need to remain open at all times.

Results

The building now stands out in its lovely central location in Burnham Village. On this page, you will find some imagery relating to works completed on the project. For further information about this or any other project carried out by the ABK team please contact us directly via the office.

Wycombe High School Case Study

Wycombe High School Case Study

The ABK team was approached by Wycombe High School to carry out some external decoration works.

Project Requirements

We were awarded the contract to carry out the painting to four main buildings, including staircases, link bridges and front entrance gates.

Solution Implemented

We carried out a very high level of preparation work to ensure longevity and a high-quality finish.
Using existing scaffold and mobile elevated platform lifts for access we completed the high-level work first. We used high-quality paints throughout the contract tinted to the school’s colours.

During the project, we were asked to replace the guttering and downpipes on one of the buildings, our building division completed this using light grey materials consistent with the other school buildings. Please take a look at our building page for the building services that we provide.

Challenges Overcome

Working on School premises it is a necessity to have enhanced DBS disclosures.  All our decorators and management have up to date DBS.

Our painters were reliable, professional, very skilled and were backed up by the office staff and our Decorations Contract Manager who provided the specification for the work. We also provide a full range of trades for any building refurbishment work.

Results

The client was extremely happy with the finished project. The images above are our genuine pictures of the project.

Client Testimonial

“I am delighted with the external paint works to several buildings and railings. The advice given prior to works commencing regarding materials and methods used was helpful and informative, the administration was smooth and all legislative requirements met. ABK’s operatives on-site followed our school procedures and were a pleasure to have on-site.”
