Back in the summer, we announced our acquisition of specialist interior fit-out and bespoke manufacturing contractor, GS Contracts and we’ve spoken about our hope that this partnership will prove beneficial to both companies. But what are the benefits of such a partnership?
Below we provide some insights into some of these benefits as we look to foster our relationship for the remainder of 2020 and beyond.
GS Contracts founder, Gary Smith and Gaysha Business manager, Lewis Elsey, discuss an upcoming project
Partnering on projects
The GS Contracts & Gaysha collaboration has allowed us to partner on projects that may not have been available to each business individually, utilising the expertise and experience from each business and bringing them together to deliver the clients desired end result.
For example, we have recently started works on a residential refurbishment project in Tower Hill. This £700k project has a £200k+ joinery package perfect for GS Contracts to demonstrate its expertise. Coupled with Gaysha’s extensive management experience working on high-end residential projects and its robust supply chain, we are able to work in collaboration to deliver this project for our client.
Ultimately, the partnership has allowed both businesses to deliver projects which they previously may have not considered.
Utilising the bespoke joinery & metalwork expertise of GS Contracts
From Gaysha’s perspective, our partnership with GS Contracts has allowed us to take full advantage of their facilities and experience to take the joinery and metal-work we can offer on projects to the next level.
We are now able to offer in-house bespoke joinery on projects which allows us to guarantee quality and timelines. We have access to GS Contracts 20,000sq ft manufacturing facility with state-of-the-art plant and equipment.
Plus GS Contracts can assist us on our traditional projects with any areas that fall within their expertise. For example, on a recent historical building refurbishment project in Bloomsbury, GS Contracts manufactured and installed new tea points, bespoke VRV cases and brass lift portals.
Sharing supply chain & subcontractor resources
Both Gaysha & GS Contracts have invested extensive effort in building a robust supply chain of experienced subcontractors and suppliers. Our partnership has given both businesses a greater pool of resources to choose from and improved our bargaining power.
Sharing in-house resources
Both Gaysha & GS Contracts place strong emphasis on providing in-house delivery where possible. Across both businesses we employ in-house joiners, carpenters, electricians, multi-traders, site managers & apprentices. All of our in-house labour is highly skilled and understand fully what is expected of them. We invest heavily in staff development and ensure all staff follow the companies ethos and share our values. We are confident this approach coupled with employing trusted subcontractors for specialist trades will allow us to deliver a great service for our clients.
In summary, we are delighted with how the relationship is forming between both businesses and collaborative working practices have been a fundamental part of our approach to navigating the global pandemic. We are excited about what the future may bring as we continue to work with GS Contracts and look to build a wider group of construction businesses.
