A new home for Christmas

With our bespoke craftsmanship in high regard, our new premises will allow us to meet increasing demand whilst retaining our reputation for high end finish and quality.

Health & Safety certainly isn’t an Achilles heel for Pinnacle

As the Pinnacle group grows – so do our responsibilities – to the environment, to health and safety practices and regulations and most importantly to our valued contractors and clients. We are always striving to do things better and our recent accreditation awards with Achilles, Constructionline and Builders Profile, are a testament to the hard work we have put into ensuring we are meeting all of your obligations.

We are immensely proud to have been accredited with these widely recognised stamps of approval. After rigorous evaluations, Pinnacle passed with flying colours which could only have been completed with a huge team effort.

Managing Director, Florin Stoica commented “At Pinnacle we take our responsibilities very seriously. We ensure that at all times we act responsibly and appropriately to ensure that our customers’ reputation is upheld. Being fully accredited in our industry means that our clients will have absolute assurance in our ability to deliver high-level services supported by a well-managed, audited structure”.

“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff who make it possible to meet the high expectations required to achieve all of the standards. It is a testament to the huge effort by everyone to ensure that we maintain our excellent reputation for delivering to (and above and beyond) the standards that our clients rightly expect. I am very proud that we hold these accreditations.”

A BRAND new look for Pinnacle


At Pinnacle we are able to offer our clients a one-stop shop for all of their bespoke carpentry, joinery, expert roofing and high-quality general building.

Our business has grown and evolved over the last couple of years to meet the growing demands of our industry. We have refreshed our logos to reflect who we are today – dynamic and forward thinking. This wasn’t a decision we made lightly. We are proud of our history and reputation for excellent customer service. This is why our logo retains its core elements. We have added a new colour for each of the Pinnacle specialities and also created a more modern feel.

There’s also a whole host of smaller but impactful changes as part of our invigorated branding, all to make your experience of Pinnacle’s service that much better. When we started the project we had big ideas, from updating our website content to emphasise the full complement of services we are able to offer, to helping users get from one place to the next without skipping our most important information. We have also created a host of new graphics to bring our breadth of service and expertise to life. We hope you like them!

Success at Willmott Dixon Awards!

Alex Aciu Achieves best SSCS at Willmott Dixon Awards 2017

Each year every regional Willmott Dixon hosts a supply chain conference to recognise its extended family and celebrate the success of their project.

The 2017 London and the South Supply Chain Conference took place in London’s famous Tower Bridge and saw staff and subcontractors enjoy a tour of the grounds followed by a meal and drinks.

As well as the enjoying the scenery, the day also recognised the success of Willmott Dixons supply chain partners and their hard working staff that make good projects be great projects.

This year our very own Site Supervisor Alex Aciu ‘Best SSSTS’ for his efforts at George Eliot Residences,
Royal Holloway University of London.

Managing Director Florin Stoica said “His commitment to ensuring that we operate within the legal responsibilities regarding health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, ensures we are at the top of our game when it comes to best practice. We are exceptionally proud of his achievement – he is a credit to the company.

Christopher Lloyd-Evans – Build Manager – Willmott Dixon – added “Alex has been a great addition to the project and has been a huge part of the project’s success. He has a positive attitude all the time and a proactive approach to work. This is something that Alex has passed onto his operatives who are working for him and he was part of a cohesive team that works well together. His eye for quality and thinking ‘outside the box’ has been refreshing and allowed delicate designs to be reworked. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Pinnacle on my next project and I would ensure Alex is the SSS in charge.

Getting the Pinnacle Treatment

Building firm foundations for large contracts with global Main Contractors

The joinery requirements for the impressive Royal Holloway student accommodation built by  Willmott Dixon is one of our biggest contracts to date.

We have been very successful in not only meeting the very precise manufacturing requirements for the door sets (manufactured in our factory), but have also met very demanding delivery requirements. This has involved coordinating multiple deliveries, with very small quantities so the doors can be fitted exactly as they are required  This has been imperative due to the very tight spaces around the student blocks.

As specialist carpenters, it has been vital to be able to supply our own materials. Main contractors have had peace of mind that we are able to deliver high standards, on time and able to adjust designs and quantities if required.
