How the pandemic affected the way we work.
During the unprecedented times, everything seemed completely out of the ordinary, the whole world had made a sudden change and we all have been put in situations we have never been in before. At the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, and the UK lockdown, we here at Middleton Bespoke Joinery, closed our workshops and offices and had to work from home. This of course became the new normal for many UK citizens, and we all adapted very well to the circumstances.
The workshop and the office stayed closed for several weeks until it was deemed safe for a skeleton crew to return to work, to reduce contact and the number of people inside the workshop. This meant a small handful of our workshop team could return to finish a few projects for after the lockdown. As the situation progressed, the spreading of the virus began to slow down and the lockdown was eased, we could not have been happier to get back into the workshop as a full team and start doing what we do best, office staff were still working hard at home until it was safe for everyone to return to work. Inside the workplace, extra safety precautions were put in place, with social distancing measures inside the factory and the office, cleaning equipment, hand sanitiser and protective equipment available and easy to access and meetings taking place over conference calls we minimised the risk of any infection and spread of the virus.
Back to work…
With extra safety precautions, obeying government guidelines and following any COVID-19 advice we were extremely eager to start designing, drawing and creating beautiful, bespoke pieces of dream furniture. With things slowly but surely returning to normal and we get back to what we were used to, it is time to start making things happen, creating your dream home and astounding pieces of furniture. Since being back we have already completed a few of our projects with many more exciting plans to come, we look forward to hearing your new ideas to create your perfect home as we are sure lockdown has made you think creatively, we know we have been.
