Precision Timber Handrails recruits new member

Published:  02 August, 2013

Precision Timber Handrails (PTH), the bespoke handrail and woodwork service from UK firm Clive Durose, has appointed Jenna Denson to head up its expanding operation.

Previously leading the technical design team at Armitage Shanks, Ms Denson will be responsible for growing PTH’s CNC capabilities and product range, as well as helping the brand to expand into new markets. As the dedicated coordinator for all PTH projects, her extensive technical background and knowledge of the industry will ensure the company continues to explore new and innovative solutions in high-tech, precision woodwork.

Combining some of the most technologically advanced CNC machines in the UK with the heritage and dedicated craftsmanship of the Clive Durose team, PTH specialises in intricate and complex wood components for a variety of projects, from high-end residential properties to large-scale commercial projects.

The company has recently worked on projects such as the extensive restoration of the historic Lancaster Gate building in London and the multi-million pound new Liverpool Hope University gallery. Most recently, the team has secured a contract to work on the £33m renovation of the Berners Hotel in London.

“I’m delighted to have joined the Precision Timber Handrails team at such an exciting time in the company’s development,” said Ms Denson. “As a qualified draftsman and CAD expert, I relish the technical aspect of the role, and it’s going to be great to work on new and challenging projects with the team to deliver unique components for a varied portfolio of clients.”

Clive Durose, managing director at Precision Timber Handrails, said: “Jenna’s technical expertise and experience in the industry will be a huge asset to Precision Timber Handrails as we develop our CNC capabilities. As we expand our range, we are able to create even more accurate and complex bespoke products to meet the specific needs of our clients, whether that’s for a boutique hotel or a five-storey commercial building. Now is a great time to bring Jenna on board to head up the business and provide an expert point of contact for all our customers.”
