Our project team
The Benchmarx affordable housing project team is headed up by Peter Boakes (Head of National Sales) who is supported by a dedicated team of managers, sales staff, kitchen designers, surveyors and administrators.
Unlike many of our competitors, we directly employ our estimators and surveyors. That means they’re always on hand to work on your projects, and are committed to providing the best possible service to the affordable housing sector.
Our dedicated project team is a key benefit of choosing Benchmarx as the kitchen provider for your next affordable housing project.
Centrally managed, locally distributed
The level of support we can provide is a huge advantage of choosing Benchmarx for your next Social Housing project. We offer a unique approach of central project management combined with local stock and delivery. Whatever the size or scale of your kitchen project, our dedicated affordable housing project team will successfully manage the process from start to finish.
You’ll enjoy personal service from our administration team - and you won’t need to liaise with multiple Branch Managers for larger projects spread over a wide geographical area. We’ll provide nationally agreed pricing with a free design service, before arranging free delivery from your local Benchmarx branch.
Of course, the support you’ll receive from our team will be backed up by your local branch. We will ensure they are prepared to dispatch your kitchens “on time and in full”.
Our view is that the delivery of the kitchen is an incredibly important part of the whole process; therefore we operate our own fleet of vehicles, which means that we can provide a professional delivery service to either a site compound, or the resident’s front door. We also use hand held terminals that ensure accuracy on all deliveries.
Our lead times
Once the property is ready for the new kitchen to be installed, we’ll arrange delivery within 24 hours. Contractor collections are always available.
We offer a lead time of 3 working days for planned maintenance, to allow time for vehicle scheduling, and let you plan effectively with your contractors and residents.
