About Bates Carpentry

I have worked mostly privately for the last 20 odd years but have worked on the Euro Disney project and at the MOD project at Abbey Wood. I have worked as a shopfitter
and with ornamental plasterers Hayles and Howe.I also built the front cover on the Glassboat restaurant in Welsh Back Bristol, the Atrium in Byzantium restaurant and most of the carpentry for the original build,the fitting out of The Spyglass restaurant in Welsh Back Bristol.I was the main carpenter on these projects and also for the conversion of the Old Fire Station in York Rd Bedminster to offices and building of recording studio there.


I am a good project organiser and deal well with tradespeople and customers alike.We always address customers' concerns and ensure that any issues are dealt with asap.
We have good contacts with other trades whom I have selected to be among the most professional and trustworthy. Apart from being competent and professional myself, We always turn up when agreed, and complete all projects on time.We can deal with all work from loft conversions to kitchens and can arrange relevant trades as necessary. We also make it a point not to leave loose ends.
