The Process – Install

One of the most satisfying elements of what we do is seeing a commission that we have designed on paper and then produced at the forge installed in harmony with the space that the metalwork was specifically created for.

We are experienced in collaborating with architects, engineers, hauliers, lifting specialists and landscapers if appropriate. Installation, wherever possible, is undertaken by our own team, thus ensuring the same high level of attention to detail seen at the design and the production stages.

We can provide foundations drawings, where necessary, on large scale public works, and for domestic work we will happily liaise with your builder or install any foundations that may be required.

Our well equipped mobile workshop enables us to transport all the tools that will be required to complete installation safely and efficiently and we always design our work to enable us to be on site installing for the shortest time possible.

Our aim, is create for you, a distinctive piece of work with elements of surprise and wow factor that will bring many years of joy.
