Testimonials

“Just a brief note to say it’s been a pleasure working with you guys on the DPD, Network 46 Project over the course of the last 12 months.

I visited the site earlier in the week and it looked excellent.

Hopefully there will be plenty of other opportunities for UMC and Quantum to work together again in the future.

Many Thanks again,

Matthew Salanyk

Director”

This enquiry was handled as an urgent request to assist the Client achieve completion of an innovative concept using modern techniques within a traditional background. The brief involved designing a booking hall and activity centre to complete the Client’s ‘Village Hotel’ development.

A decision to include the planting of an English Oak within the timber framed building led to careful consideration of the implication for permitting the tree to grow through the building
without having a detrimental effect upon the structure.

In order to adhere to the Client’s wish for a ‘Green’ building, a ground source heat pump, wind catcher ventilation system and sedum roof were all incorporated into the design.

Inclusion of copper vertical wall panelling, and part roofing, added a modern feel to the overall appearance.

Bespoke joinery products, including reception desks, play and office cupboards and equipment were manufactured off site and brought into the finished product.

A highly sophisticated sound and vision system completed the arrangements for the activity function of the building.
