Our unique digitised design-to-fabrication process is designed to enable our customer to manage their metalwork projects more efficiently and cost-effectively.
It encompasses the entire project process, combining digital site data (BIM information or 3-D site survey) with advanced methods of fabrication, digital approval processes and intuitive scheduling to ensure clients get quality tailored products, fabricated to be installed in the most efficient manner and to agreed schedules. We offer a range of finishes on both supply only or supply and fit products. Process Video.

* Digitised ‘design-to-fabrication process describes how we import Building Information Models (BIM) or 3-D survey dimensions (‘as built’) to capture the reality of site conditions and integrate that digital information with our drawing packages, cutting tools, communication and scheduling systems.
This enables us to deliver on-time tailored products, communicate and collaborate with clients more efficiently, to compress the design process and identifying and eliminating potential conflicts and costs.
