Rising To The Challenge

Leading North Yorkshire-based construction and bespoke joinery specialists, Biker Group, have been chosen to work for internationally-renowned interior architect Jonathan Reed.

Biker Group, the multi-faceted construction specialists, are currently undertaking a restoration and refurbishment project for the interior architect Jonathan Reed, founder of Studio Reed in London. The project is a complex restoration and remodelling of a Grade II-listed Regency house on Jonathan’s estate in North Yorkshire. After years of neglect, the work is restoring and altering the 19th century property in a positive and sensitive manner to preserve the heritage asset.

‘This is the acid test for our construction and bespoke joinery divisions,’ comments Ben Biker, Managing Director of Biker Group. ‘We have an excellent reputation for producing building and joinery work of this nature to the highest standard, but to work with a globally- recognised champion of interior architecture is the perfect challenge for us.’

Studio Reed work both in the UK and internationally on prestigious, large-scale residential projects for important clients, such as the King and Queen of Jordan, David and Iman Bowie, Bryan Adams and Elle Macpherson, to name but a few. ‘Biker Group were the only firm I interviewed that seemed to have the ability to handle both the extensive and challenging site construction works, whilst also being able to coordinate the detail, design and manufacture of the high level of detailed joinery works that the project required,’ comments Jonathan Reed.


‘On many occasions throughout the last months, I have congratulated myself on having made the right decision,’ continues Jonathan. ‘Biker Group have risen to all the challenges that I – a self-confessed hard taskmaster – have thrown at them and as the project has come together and now reaches completion, I couldn’t be happier with what has been achieved. The attention to detail by the Biker Group team has been superb and the finished result is of the best quality in every way.’


Biker Group work on a variety of exclusive and prestigious projects on listed and heritage buildings. They have the unique ability of combining the specialist construction division with the finest bespoke joinery team around to offer a complete in-house service, where other companies have to employ sub-contractors.

‘It’s both challenging and rewarding for our team to be working with someone who is at the top of their game on the world stage,’ comments Ben. ‘Jonathan’s eye is drawn to an almost subconscious level of detail and, as a result, we are looking at routine processes from different angles. The results will be unique and of the utmost taste.’
