Synseal group companies Masterdor Ltd and Sheerframe Ltd have helped Nick Knowles and the BBC DIY SOS team to transform properties in Manchester and create high quality homes suitable for British war veterans and local community residents.
In BBC1’s two-part special, the DIY SOS team delivered its most ambitious project to date when it agreed to refurbish more than 60 houses in Manchester’s New Street and Canada Street. The programme of building works was undertaken to create an improved, more resident-friendly neighbourhood and included a Walking With The Wounded advice and therapy centre as well as extensive streetscaping work.
Masterdor Ltd was delighted to supply 15 composite residential doors with Sheerframe outer frames on the project and supplier partners Select Engineering Asia, UAP Hardware and Distinction Doors also contributed associated door components free of charge. The Masterdor doors were expertly fitted by Glen Bracek of CLG Joinery who provided on-site installation services.
Sheerframe Ltd provided PVC-U extrusions for energy-efficient windows in the 66 homes which were specially fabricated and fitted by leading window, door and curtain walling manufacturer and installer CMS Window Systems.
“When we heard what the DIY SOS team were planning to undertake in Manchester we all wanted to contribute in a meaningful way,” comments Synseal’s Chief Executive David Leng, “This endeavour was obviously for such a good cause and the BBC programmes screened in October were both heart-warming and inspirational. I would like to thank our associated Synseal suppliers and fabricator partners for their additional hands-on support and practical assistance with this impressive community project.”
