Blimey! You are cutting it a bit fine to be booking contractors for the summer holiday closure - if that is when they are supposed to do the work.

You will be lucky to get anyone now. I have had mine set up since Easter.
I can recommend Midas Flooring 0121 333 5846.
I cannot help with the other trades as the ones I know are fully booked over the 6 weeks.
Google 24/7, I have used them in the past. Bit expensive but whoever you get now will be as it is last minute.

Yeah agree with the above, I've got carpet tiles which need going down in the main office once I've painted it. Had that booked in since Easter otherwise it just won't happen.

Unfortunately I think you'll just have to "suck it up" with regards to cost etc, that's if you can get anyone in.

Go take yourself off for a long tea break then go tell your manager that they left it way too late and no one is available

Hate to think who you will get leaving it so late.
Our head wanted a small office taking down last year to give more space in a classroom.
Asked me to get quotes. Two days before we broke up. Did it happen. No..... Happened in October holiday's.

Happiness is hiding and not been found by the Head or others.
