Bryan Hudspeth formed Instal Ltd in 1994 after working in the office furniture industry for thirteen years. It is a small business based in south London who’s main aim is to ensure that our clients receive a professional and efficient service at a competitive price. We also strive to provide our team with the necessary tools to stay ahead of our competitors. Initially the company undertook small to medium scale office installation and reconfiguration projects. Whilst still undertaking smaller projects we started to be called upon to take on much larger and complex installation projects as increasingly our clients have acknowledged and appreciated our project management skills. On all projects we work closely with in-house facilities managers and manufacturers project managers. We are normally requested to undertake some or all of project management functions, including:
Liaising with manufacturers and designers on design and delivery
Agreeing phasing with clients
Providing and deploying manpower as and when needed
Arranging site logistics by liaising with other trades on site
Arranging and reconciling deliveries
Undertaking stock takes
Signing off completed phases and projects
