Mr Brown contacted us to assist with bulkheads design and installation at his residence in Midrand as part of his project to completely redo their kitchen.
He already had a clear picture in mind of how he wanted his kitchen to look but asked us to assist with the bulkheads to ensure that it is aesthetically suitable for his vision.
He desired to accentuate the kitchen and also have a lighting solution not only impress but also give a atmosphere of sophistication whilst still creating a relaxing and conducive environment with a bulkheads design.
Mr Brown replaced all the kitchen cupboard and appliances. We had to fix the bulkheads frame directly to the slab and compensate for a slight deviation in the slab level.
The final design was rectangular bulkheads with a recessed center which also allows for the option to fit pendulum lights, the drop from the ceiling to the bottom edge was carefully planned to fit in with the height and with of the room. Too little or too much of a drop is aesthetically displeasing.
The bulkheads looks amazing and compliments the surrounding areas amazingly. Mr Brown did an amazing job with the combination of fixtures and fittings.
The structure of the bulkheads was created from galvanized main tees and cross tees as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with wafer tech screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.After the bulkheads structure was completed 9.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used and corners trimmed with corner beads. Care needs to be taken that this done properly as a corner bead fitted a slight bit out of position will have a disastrous effect on the final aesthetic look.
After all of the above was completed two coats of Rhinolite was applied to the bulkheads and skimmed to a smooth flawless finish. Toni-Anne and her team then applied paint and fitted LED strips lights and pendulum lights.Both the bulkhead for the boardroom and meeting room was constructed and finished in only 3 days, which in it self is mammoth of a task not only to complete in 3 days, but also to do with detail and perfection.Well done to the team!!!
