Meet the Team: Timothy Perry
Project Sales Estimator
With nearly 25 years’ experience in the Architectural Hardware/Ironmongery trade, Timothy holds the Architectural Hardware Consultant credential (AHC) of the Door and Hardware Institute (DHI) in the USA. He is also certified by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongery (GAI) in London as a Registered Architectural Ironmonger.
Timothy specialises in writing Architectural Hardware Specifications to include the British NBS P21 and North American CSI 871000 format for the international design community with a primary focus on hospitality projects.
Having worked at Häfele for 5 years all over the globe, Timothy has thoroughly had his appetite for travelling overseas whet with one of his first major wins for the Project WorldWide (PWW) Office with Jumeriah Hotel in Nanjing, China.
After successfully establishing and running the PWW Office in Singapore for three and a half years, Timothy is now a key member of the Häfele UK Project Team as well as an integral part of the Häfele Projects Worldwide Operations. His main responsibilities are specifying product and writing “door and door” hardware specifications for both national and international projects.
A hand-in-hand collaboration has been established and continues between Timothy and Stephen Badgery to present a complete architectural specification solution for UK based practices, whether they are working nationally or globally. This is a unique service offering in the AH industry only available with Häfele Projects 360.
Timothy says, “When I hear that a Häfele subsidiary has won an order from a specification that I have written it gives me a true sense of achievement. Writing a quality “door by door” hardware specification for a national/international project is the best part of my day so it’s great to know that these have been instrumental to the success of my colleagues in Häfele Projects Worldwide.
“I truly believe that well trained, professional door hardware experts with education from GAI and DHI is key to the future of our industry worldwide. As with every industry, we need professionals to supply a high quality service whilst using high quality products.”
Timothy’s favourite product is the FSB Bronze Lever Handler available exclusively when ordering through the Projects team.
