Graham Plumbers’ Merchant has recently supplied Willmott Dixon Interiors with a range of brassware and sanitaryware products for Twickenham Stadium’s East Stand redevelopment.
The full £34 million fit-out encompassed 11,000m2 of hospitality space and took 40 weeks to complete. The finished East Stand now consists of six floors of event space for private hire, including bars, restaurants, conference facilities and a rooftop rose garden, for use on both match and non-match days.
Graham Plumbers’ Merchant supplied contractors Willmott Dixon Interiors with a variety of sanitaryware products, brassware and other items such as hand driers and washroom accessories. The products were used to fit-out washroom areas across all six floors, including accessible WCs, cleaners’ stores and staff areas.
David Stephens, Estimating Services Manager Commercial Sales and Spares for the South at Graham was behind the lengthy strategy for the project and engaged in several value engineering exercises with the Willmott Dixon Interiors team to select the best products for the job.
David commented: “From day one I was involved in collating all the relevant information and preparing the finalised quote. Once everything had been signed off, I then passed the project over to our brilliant team at the Hayes branch, who were instrumental in servicing the project with supreme excellence. A great combined effort that I was very proud to be part of.”
Chris Musson was Senior Quantity Surveyor on the project for Wilmott Dixon Interiors. Chris commented: “The service we received from Graham was excellent from inception to project completion. What stood out for me was the proactive approach of the Graham staff and their ability to deliver under tight time constraints on what was a challenging project. Graham also went above and beyond to ensure that any issues were closed out before completion.
“I found the value engineering side of the service very useful and the staff were really committed to providing options that worked within our budget and programme constraints. This is the first time I have worked with Graham, I would definitely recommend the merchant in the future without any reservations.”
