About us

We believe the performance of an organisation is hugely impacted by the working environment in which it operates. To this end we use our expertise in the science of solar shading to help architects, specifiers, contractors and facilities managers to create exceptional working environments.

All of our products are designed to suit the rigours of the commercial, education and healthcare environments, and our staff are familiar with the demands of tight deadlines. Whilst we don’t claim to be perfect, we work hard to keep our promises and communicate with our clients to ensure challenges are met on time.

We are passionate about using blinds to improve the energy efficiency of buildings and boost the health & well being of its’ occupants. We have invested time and money into teaching clients the science of solar shading so they can make informed decisions.

Waverley is family owned and managed. We promote values of honesty, integrity, accountability and teamwork and this is reflected in a motivated and loyal team, many of whom have been with the company for more than 10 years and some as many as 25!

History

Waverley was founded in 1983 in the council borough of Waverley in Godalming Surrey, just 8 miles from our current location. First known as ‘Waverley Contracts’ the owner bought made to measure blinds from trade suppliers and serviced the residential and commercial market within a 20 mile radius.

Fast forward to 2000, Waverley was purchased by the current senior director who systematically rung the changes to make the business fit for the 21st century. Larger premises were secured, and in-house manufacturing began. Three years later, three sons became joint owners and the business continued to grow.

In 2005 larger premises were purchased to make space for the rapidly expanding company. Now with over 35 employed staff and continuous investment in operational improvements, the company is well placed to service the needs of the market for many years to come.

BIM

 

 

 

 

Waverley has always been a leader in the industry and this applies to Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

All government funded projects will be required to use BIM by 2016 which has put pressure on architects and main contractors to implement the necessary changes to make this happen. The implications of this fast-moving trend are recognised by Waverley who have already invested in BIM objects for their ShadeTech range of roller and dim-out blinds with BIM objects of other projects and being rolled out during the twelve months.

Now architects and contractors have a blinds, curtain and canopy partner that can provide BIM objects on all projects.
