The client approached Wernick after receiving a referral through an existing customer. Derek Lewis Ltd desired a similar building, and the delivery timeline of a refurbished building fitted their requirements.

Wernick Refurbished Buildings implements the utility of steel frames from existing modular buildings but ensures the entirety of the interior is brand new. Developing sustainability measures through recycling extant buildings ensures cost-efficient methods are provided for customers.

Wernick worked closely with the client, certifying designs and layouts that worked to their requirement. In a total of 12 weeks, Wernick Refurbished Buildings produced a new Head Office for Derek Lewis Ltd that proved value on a number of levels from sales service to cost and build.” Tom Lewis, Director at Derek Lewis Ltd.
