Leading mouldings manufacturer, The W.Howard Group has supplied a range of MDF mouldings solutions for an exciting residential renovation project in the North West, called The Chapel Apartments. During the restoration and redevelopment of the historic Wesleyan Methodist Chapel School, an interesting discovery was made by unearthing a time capsule dating back to 1906.
Located in the picturesque village of Astley Green where the business is based, the Chapel Apartments project has seen sister company, W.Howard Investments transform the Chapel School into six high specification apartments and one Mews home.
Providing finishes that would be sympathetic to the design of the conversion and complimentary to many of the building's original features, W.Howard manufactured and supplied skirtings and architraves in its white KOTA™ products as well as its American Black Walnut veneered skirtings and architraves.
Speaking about the project, W.Howard's Group Chief Executive, Jonathan Grant said: "It has been great to be involved in such a heritage project here on our doorstep. The new Chapel Apartments provide unique, high quality accommodation whilst the design has retained many of the building's original features - internally with the beams and window frames to externally through the treatment of existing brickwork.
"The team has done  a fantastic job in returning it to its former glory."
Located within easy reach of Manchester City Centre, Salford Media City and Liverpool, the apartments also benefit from views across open countryside and tranquil surroundings. They are located close to the picturesque Bridgewater Canal and the popular canal-side pub, Old Boat House.
