SERVICES

Custom Fabrications

With the largest and most advanced wood shop in Grenada we are the leading producer of hardwood doors and moldings. In addition, D&W can provide design services and CAD drawings for your special project needs. We provide custom joinery and case work for the hospitality, retail, residential and marine sectors. 

Custom Installations

Our team of experienced craftsmen are prepared for the challenges often found when installing doors and windows in non-standard rough openings. This is just one of many reasons clients choose our custom doors sets over imported products which are not easily modified. 

General Contracting

Our management team takes great pride in meeting deadlines and delivering the highest level of service while overcoming the the many hurdles one encounters when working in the West Indies. We have a proven track record of success derived from our many years of work at SGU and other facilities. 

 

ABOUT

Company Founder, and Managing Director, Peter J. Ellams first visited Grenada in 2013 as a consulting engineer to St. George's University. His team was able to uncover the multiple causes of ongoing indoor air quality issues in some of the largest buildings in the West Indies. 

After developing corrective actions to eliminate the underlying construction defects, Mr. Ellams was asked to manage a multi-phase project to fix seven "Superdorm" buildings at the SGU Campus, each housing between 160 and 300 students.

From the start of his work in Grenada Peter noticed how poorly mass production doors withstood the tropical environment in the West Indies. Costly, imported doors and other furnishings made with soft-woods, composite, or engineered materials covered with thin veneers fail quickly, leaving owners with warped and blemished finishes that are susceptible to termites and water damage.

Desmond & Westhead, Ltd. was established with the goal of providing a high quality, durable, and lower cost alternatives to these imports. Made locally in Grenada, using only sustainably harvested hardwoods, our doors are resistant to insects, rot and other defects.

When installed professionally by our Grenadian craftsmen, using modern means and methods, our products will look great for decades requiring only minimal maintenance and periodic refinishing.

Having successfully delivered many door orders D&W is now producing custom windows and other casework for other hospitality developments and retail operations throughout the West Indies .
