Architectural Ironmongery – Meet The Team

From left to right: Gary, Anna, Ellie and Jim


Jim Brice DipGAI MGAI RegAI


Jim joined Integrated Doorsets in 2018 and has since played an integral role in the development of our integrated door and ironmongery technical specifications as well as the development of our customer fulfilment service, making full use of his 35 years’ experience as an Architectural Ironmonger.

During his career in Ironmongery, Jim has worked on many prestigious projects, most recently the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station Circus West and Bart’s Square. Internationally he has worked on the Dubai World Trade Centre, delivering on the client’s design intent, ensuring compliance to certification, delivering harmonised integrated door and ironmongery packages.

Moving forward, Jim continues to be our ironmongery technical lead, ensuring the products we offer meet the requirements of our doorset certification and are compliant with the Building Regulations’ Approved Documents.

Jim has recently enrolled onto the GAI Diploma in Door Systems course, which is designed to further educate on all aspects of the architectural ironmongery industry with an emphasis on doorsets.


Gary Cooper DipGAI MGAI RegAI


Gary joined our business at the end of 2022 and is the newest member of our Ironmongery Team.  He brings with him 25 years of experience as an Architectural Ironmonger, working for both door and ironmongery businesses.

Having been involved in many projects over the years, Gary was recently involved in the supply of door hardware and the installation of door automation to the Exchange Building, University of Birmingham. This involved the conversion of the old Municipal Bank in Birmingham to a multifunctional building that could host events, workshops and exhibitions, with the addition of a new café and restaurant that are now open to the general public.

Gary leads our estimating, scheduling, and customer fulfilment services. His experience will ensure we are able to provide our customers with the very best specification advice for their projects.

Like Jim, Gary has also enrolled onto the GAI Diploma in Door Systems course.

Anna joined Integrated Doorsets in 2019 and is responsible for all storeroom operations and inventory management. As Supply Chain Coordinator, Anna and her team are responsible for receiving all supplier deliveries and preparation for despatch to our customers, both internal and external to our business.

Anna has completed the GAI Foundation in Hardware course and is currently working her way through year one of the GAI Certificate in Architectural Hardware course.


Ellie Bray


Ellie joined Integrated Doorsets in February 2021 as an assistant within our Purchasing Team. During her time with us she has successfully completed a Business Administrator Advanced Apprenticeship.

Ellie has joined our Ironmongery Team as a Trainee and is learning from the ground up.  She is assisting with all aspects of day-to-day customer fulfilment including order processing, delivery planning, inventory management and picking and packing customer orders.
