XL Joinery, Leeds

Client: XL Joinery

For over 25 years, XL Joinery have been helping homeowners transform the spaces they love.As an expanding market leading timber door supplier, distributing in excess of 500,000 doors and associated joinery products per annum to Builders Merchants and Retail Sectors across theUK, XL Joinery required a new Head Office and World Class distribution facility to support continued business growth.


Solution:Positive was appointed as Building Services Consultants by XL Joinery to advise on the Mechanical & Electrical Building Services for the bespoke fit-out of their impressive new 6acre site, including a 140,000 sq ft warehouse with production workshops and 15,000 sq ft head office. Located next to the M621 motorway in Birstall, the state-of-the-art offices and distribution warehouse enables XL Joinery to distribute their products throughout the UK to some of the most prestigious Builders Merchants and Retail outlets. Solution:Positive advised XL Joinery on their infrastructure requirements and negotiated on their behalf with the Distribution Network Operator for an increased electricity supply capacity to accommodate their plans for continued expansion. An increase in the supply capacity was achieved at no cost to XL Joinery.


Client feedback: “Having matured into a market leading timber door supply operation... and our 100 year old 125,000 sq ft premises duly serving its’ purpose well, the ambition of the business for expansion into a larger, purpose designed site became a priority. We needed a World Class distribution point, with both LED and

natural lighting solutions, low carbon emissions and energy efficient climate control to support our expanding operation... and from the outset, Solution:Positive understood our vision and demonstrated the experience and expertise to advise and deliver. Their ability to adjust to a particularly fluid design model, provide solutions, implement and then co-ordinate a structured plan with multiple contractors is particularly commendable. 18 months settled in to our new home and now a Carbon Neutral business, Solution:Positive were again on hand to help us capitalise on our energy saving drive and administrate further reductions in our supply capacity.”
