As yet another year draws near to a close, many of you may be surprised that we have only just completed our third full year of trading… Despite Restorative Techniques relatively young age, our distinct reputation with key architects and specifiers, along with our in-house, professional technical expertise of materials and substrates, spanning over three decades, long experience, has gained our range being used on a considerable number of notable projects and structures.
Projects have ranged across the UK and Europe, even reaching as far afield as Saudi and Asia. Notable buildings within the UK have ranged from Royal Palaces, Cathedrals, Museums, Stations to name just a few, with many other structures also benefitting from our quality of technical support as a supplier. We don’t simply have some limited knowledge of machinery and products, we also have expertise on substrates and materials, which can genuinely aid a project, both in cost and outcome.
THERMATECH® The new generation of modular, 110v superheated water equipment, designed in 110v from the outset, is now becoming widely used and specified, with many architects and contractors now recognizing the performance and numerous features of the system over many other existing designs and alternative hot water systems. ThermaTech is already registered with series trademark and received its patent pending status back in Spring 2011, to prevent against infringements.
The system is both designed and manufactured in Bristol in a modular arrangement, with a number of important features that make the system incredibly versatile. You can now even successfully utilize the superheated water method effectively on internal projects, by combining ThermaTechs ‘optional’ Recovery Module…
ThermaTech, with the additional 110v Recovery Module, is then suitable for indoor use and provides enough performance for two operators, to be working simultaneously with a single set of equipment. This can be a massive improvement over many alternatives, such as chemical and/or labour intensive methods and can save time, whilst decreasing costs and overheads. Concerns over indoor water containment and increased vapour from the use of hot water, have been negated by the condensing design and performance of this unit.
We intend to continue in our ethos of going beyond being just another supplier to the industry and have many further new products and innovative practical solutions to encountered problems, which will be launched in the coming year. We really hope you appreciate our approach of technical support and innovation and that you’re already financially benefitting from our knowledge of why certain products will, or won’t work and why or when, they are best avoided.
All of us at RT, would like to take this opportunity in wishing everyone we have worked with, a very Happy Christmas and how much we look forward to working with you all again, in an exciting, coming New Year!
Too Busy, Even to Tweet!
Restorative Techniques details and range is now appearing in so many different publications and directories and we have become very busy, also in exporting our new systems outside the UK. So busy in fact, that we eventually realized that we’d lapsed in tweeting. Coincidence can sometimes be very strange and a recent example, is when one ThermaTech consignment, having been in Heathrow for a couple of days, was suddenly confirmed as being on the very same plane as Jamie, who was flying to view a large overseas project… That one alone was worthy of a tweet!
We continue our association with RIBA (rps 27199) and a couple of people have already mentioned having caught sight of our new 2013 Product Selector page. However, there are a significant number of other places that our details and range also appear, such as IHS Global, IHBC, Natural Stone, Conservation and other such directories, including Barbour and numerous trade magazines etc.
Jamie Fairchild continues to train, teach and provide CPD, to a number of companies, colleges and organizations and has now become particularly busy with the production of reports and other consultancy, including providing his technical expertise on removing paint, soilings and unwanted coatings from materials and substrates. Although this specialist service has frequently been in demand over the years, particularly with certain conservation architects, this expertise is now being drawn upon by a growing number of contractors, who are also using the professional expertise, knowledge and support, to try and improve upon results and make potential cost and time savings.
Thank you to all who have sent messages and continue to relay appreciation of our presence and place in the market and others who are now also in contact, having have noticed that our systems and products are becoming more frequently specified and even preferred for many projects. We plan to continue expansion next year and will be adding to this year’s new employees, Keith, Penny and Alf to be able to fulfill growing demands… We can reassure you all that Restorative Techniques is most definitely not a here today, gone tomorrow supplier, you will be hearing a lot more of us!
