GOLDEN DESIGNS Engineering Services Limited has been in existence for the past 12 years. The company has the capacity to make just about anything using wrought iron or steel and specialises in Roofing Systems, Foundations, Steel Structures, Windows, Doors, Gates, Fencing, Staircase Décor and absolutely beautiful Accent Furniture.
Benedict Chung (Managing Director) is the mastermind behind the company’s successful operations. With an educational background in Draughting, Engineering Science and Metallurgy: the Theory of metalwork, Benedict established his business on a smaller scale many years ago.
His creative nature, outright love for designing and commitment to excellence are evident in his work and today he has successfully amassed a significant and ever-growing clientele.
Benedict is easy-going and has an accommodating demeanour. Clients profess that their decision-making burden is eased as Benedict expertly guides them through several options that cater to their needs, preferences and finances. While his work speaks for itself, his clients often share their experiences; hence many jobs are by referrals.
Golden Designs now has a growing number of employees trained under the expert hands and watchful eye of Benedict. Though Benedict now functions in a supervisory capacity, he still does the major groundwork and each job continues to reflect his creativity and personal touch.
In his commitment to excellence and his desire to make the company cutting-edge, Benedict has enhanced their product range from the traditional French windows or Spanish railing designs to Hand Crafted Wrought Iron Designs. These pieces are intricately designed and add sophistication to any home.
“Clients may sometimes request designs seen on the internet. Golden Designs can re-create these designs, however our own designs are not only comparable with those international designs but are more affordable.”
When Pre-fabricated, Scrolled iron or single pieces are used; these pieces are either broken down or built upon to create unique and elegant finished products with superb workmanship.
Golden Designs Doors are quite extraordinary in appearance and functionality. For instance they can be built with interior glass panels that open independently from the door or many other designs. There are various finishing options to match your home decor — metallic, pearl, flat etc as well as rustic effects using the sponging and stippling method. Additionally, the doors can also be coated in automotive paint to better protect it from weathering.
While Benedict mostly enjoys working on residential homes as it allows more personal contact with each client, he hopes to take the company more deeply into the commercial sector and has started by developing stock for retail. A variety of items are currently being showcased at the Golden Designs compound located at #59 Mc Bean, Main Road, Couva.
His advice for those looking for contractors? Look for someone who is reputable, whose work speak for itself, keeps his word and deals with you straight. Additionally, he offers the following tips:
1. Shop around and get at least three quotes from different contractors — note that price differences may account for different quality of materials.
