Re: Everest Home Improvements (ES1910AR)

Hi Mr Meacher,

Ken Lees the installation centre manager for London North depot has advised me that we will have to wait for surveyor Robbie to return on Monday 4th November for drawings.

However Ken would be happy to arrange for you visit the centre (located in St Albans) if you wish to have a look at some manufactured.

If you would like to do that, I will get Ken to call you to arrange, otherwise I will chase Robbie up early next week.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Kind regards,

Sean Meacher <sean@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Re: Everest Home Improvements (ES1910AR)

Just to confirm from this end. I've conversed with Andy Hill at CET and we've sorted out the stained glass designs, so he's said he's confirmed with production control that they have everything they need for production to go ahead.
So finally, it's all looking good.
I would say I'm a little disappointed that I was (originally) feeling pressured to sign off on a design that really was sub-standard and ended up having to take the initiative by talking to the manufacturers directly to get it sorted out.

The other thing that has had me somewhat intruiged, was that at no point has anyone actually shown me, or offered to show me, the design of the frames.
When Trevor first came over, I asked him for, as I've mentioned previously, 'like for like, as far as possible, for keeping the character of the house'.
Now the list of window panels all show 'Timber Casement', so am I to assume that there's only one style for this?...
If so, could you point me in the direction of what they actually look like please?
If not, then shouldn't someone have discussed this with me?
I would have brought this up earlier, but I've been somewhat out of action for the last week and a bit.
I've got some cross-section diagrams that Robbie left with me that show the internal construction, which is all well and good, but having something I could do a mock-up with would be great.

Further to the previous mail.
I'm more than happy to provide any assistance I can to ensure that your supplier can provide what has been asked for/agreed.
I'd even be happy for you to 'borrow' the panel that's inside the porch so that the replacements can be equivalent.
I hope you can understand that for me, this is probably the most important part of this refurbishment, as it's what I'm going to have to look at every day.
As an engineer, I understand what it takes to reproduce something to quite specific tolerances and that's what I'm used to working to - whether that be wood, metal, electronics or any other construction.
I do also have friends who make stained glass for a living. So I have some understanding of the processes involved in the construction and manufacture. Compared to some of their commissions, this isn't that difficult a design.
I know I'm asking for something quite specific and really I'm not trying to be difficult.
However, when Trevor first came over and I explained what I wanted - 'like for like as far as possible, keeping the character of the house' - he assured me this would be possible.
I would have thought that as you are 'the biggest and best' (and were actually my first choice), then we can make everyone happy.

Further to my earlier mail with the reconstructed images, could you also confirm about the type of obscured glass in the clear panes of the larger panel(s) please?
These particular ones will be going in my hallway so I'd like them to be as similar as possible - or if that's not possible, at least the style that looks like it's lightly sandblasted so that we can't have outsiders peering through the windows...
For details, see the "Big Window Outline with Colours.pdf" in the zip file from the previous email.

Dear Mr Meacher,

Your products are currently in the beginning stages of manufacture however there is a query over the stained glass.

I understand Robbie Yapp surveyor has emailed you about this.

In order for this to be resolved I need to make contact with you as soon as possible. Robbie can converse with you via email or come out and see you at your convenience.

Please do get in touch as soon as you can.

Kind regards,
