Poliform Contract & Development Procedures
Poliform manufacture some 400 wardrobes and 150 kitchens per week in our Italian factories, which have been in operation for over 60 years. Generally, we can provide wardrobes within 6-8 weeks and 8-10 weeks for kitchens (depending on the finish) from signed design and quote acceptances.
Our Contract Department offers a turn key service, working with the Client and Architect from an early stage, on the design concepts and specifications and with the Main Contractor and Sub-Contractors, where required, on the Project Schedule, lead times, deliveries and installations to make sure that the finished product is completed on time, on budget and to the standard that has made Poliform one of the most influential and significant presences within the Italian furniture sector.
We have the capabilities to complete both large and small development jobs and run a complete design and fitting service to ensure the highest satisfaction from our clients.
A full design service will be offered, taking initial sizes from CAD plans or site measurements. Poliform will then design a range of wardrobes to standard or bespoke dimensions dependant on your requirements and issue a set of drawings with the minimum fitting space required for each unit noted. These details can then be passed on to the relevant trades to ensure the site dimensions are correct for installation purposes.
Quotations and costs
Based on the drawings issued, Poliform will provide a detailed quote breaking down the details of the wardrobe finishes, door types, lights, internal options, sizes, delivery, distribution, installation and costs as per the specification and schedule required.
Architects and plans
Poliform can provide drawings and wardrobe dims that can then be inputted onto the plans at an early stage so all trades are aware of the spaces and alcoves dimensions required on site.
Detailed schedules based on the build programme will be written and revised throughout the project by our contract managers in accordance with site progress and the developer’s instruction. Poliform always prefer to have a high level of communication with the construction managers on site to ensure the project runs smoothly.
Poliform will co-ordinate between the production programme in Italy, delivery schedule to the UK and on site managers to ensure that the supply and installation of the wardrobes and/or kitchens is effective and runs with maximum efficiency.
Poliform can take on the site survey if requested which will form a check of all the alcoves sizes so any remedial works can be carried out prior to the delivery of the wardrobe or kitchen. This should avoid any unnecessary delays on site.
It is important that the correspondence between site, head office and the developers is strong at all times. Therefore Poliform would instruct our project manager to oversee all works on site and build the vital relationships with all parties to schedule and complete the project effectively.
