Driving Eco forwards, once more !

Ey up my faithful blogworms, it's been a month since my last post, hope you haven't missed me too much but it's been an eventful month !

Firstly, I was rushed into hospital with Diverticulitis but the wonderful staff on the NHS looked after me superbly and I survived, all credit to them.
Secondly, we've been working down in Dover on a superb new Eco project which I'll tell you all about in a minute. 
We've gone totally handleless with a new system to us and it can be created using all our current stable of Eco2 materials, happy days !

Bit of a learning curve on this one but we sorted it and results and comments have been more than complimentary, feeling pleased.

We are making this type of kitchen an addition to our stable and hoping to use gloss colours aswell to cover thecurrent trends.

Anyway, here's what it looks like:

First of all, here in the sleepy little village of St. Margarets at Cliffe, is where it all takes place

The entrance to the Bay Trust Project which is an environmental education and study organisation and well worth a visit if you're ever in the area.

Intial set up and cabinet placings.

Because we were transporting the whole things to site in our own van, the tallhousings were flatpacked are needed gluing and clamping together on site.

The vertical rails going in on the housings to provide the hand space to open the doors

The wall units have a rebated aluminium trim to go in at the bottom, again to provide handspace.

The base units have a rail section fitted just under the worktop for the same reason

Appliances going in

This view shows the base unit rail providing the handspace just above the doors

This view and the one below shows how the rails provide for opening the doors

The finished look giving a very clean, smart, contemporary appearance.

Simplicity with style and functionality is definitely the key here.

The whole thing was interesting for us the create, being the first full project we've done in this style and something that we would love to do again.
We don't currently have this on display but are going to have some display cabinets made to show you exactly how it works here at our HQ.
One final thing to mention, is that we are now looking into building a fresh website for Milestone as this kitchen version will bring our Eco stable up to 9 different styles of kitchen. More Eco kitchens from one company than are currently being offered by any other company in the UK, a fact we're very proud of !!
Driving Eco design forwards once more !
Looking after the planet..... Jules
