Elta Lighting is an Automotive Bulb specialist business based in Coleshill, West Midlands, Elta has been trading from this area for over 15 years and now is housed in a 25000 sq ft warehouse distributing to our network of customers daily. Having worked for Elta in the past Bickford were awarded a contract for a new warehouse on their site in Coleshill. Here we show the development of the of the new disribution centre.
Is next door to Elta’s existing facility with the new building surrounded by other properties. This meant that considerable piling was required to retain the integrity of the new centre and of the other non Elta’s neighbours buildings.
Once we had completed the piling we started the process of building the shell and then putting on the roof.
“ I am delighted to provide this testimonial as Bickford Building Services is a company of which I think highly. They have previously done excellent work for me on both a business and personal basis. When I decided to extend our distribution centre in Coleshill Bickford’s were the natural choice. The job was to build a 1500 square meter warehouse in 6 months. Despite some horrendous rain which meant pumping out the site and the need to do additional piling, Peter Olds and his team completed the job on time, to budget and to our complete satisfaction. This allowed us to increase our capacity as planned to support the next phase of the business’s development”.

“ Bickford’s recently completed an internal renovation for us and we are really delighted with the outcome. Other than their craftsmanship and their skills which are a given, what was really important to us was the regular communication. I always felt very involved and understood the need for various steps to be completed prior to the end result. We have experience in large building projects and knowing this and what goes on in a typical project we are really happy to recommend Bickfords”.
“ We had never been involved in such a large project before and the whole team’s professional but friendly and flexible approach made the experience as stress free as possible. They were always extremely organised which really helped to keep to deadlines and budgets. The site was very well managed and secure at all times. They had no problem working with the other professionals engaged on the project, it was very much a team approach and the focus was always on achieving the end goal for the project. Nothing was too much trouble. We were heavily involved throughout the process and really appreciate the experience and craftsmanship that the team brought to our project. We are very pleased and proud of the end result and cannot recommend the Bickfords team highly enough”.
“ Bickford’s did an excellent job for us throughout. The site was well set up and managed. Demolition and excavation work was carefully supervised to create minimal disruption to us and neighbours. Attention to detail and craftsmanship were important to us and we were extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship in all areas. Indeed Bickfords went out of their way to ensure that we got exactly what we wanted, sitting through lengthy meetings and consulting us at every stage of the project. We are delighted with the end result which was in fact shortlisted for a RIBA award, and would recommend Bickford Building services”.
“ "Bickford Builders have been a breath of fresh air - honest, reliable, professional and courteous throughout we are really grateful for the transformation created for the whole family to enjoy. The support, workmanship and dedication of the whole team have been outstanding. We cannot recommend Peter, Paul, Mark and their team highly enough."”.
“ Bickford Building Services have just transformed one of our garages from what was a "tip" into a great office and downstairs loo. It has made a huge difference, having opened up our hall and liberated a bedroom. The men from Bickford were delightful, neat and tidy and obviously very good at their jobs. It was a pleasure having them in the house. I would happily recommend Bickford Building Services to anyone.”.
