Due to our ability to manufacture bespoke sizes, each year we receive a number of enquiries about our expertise in structural steel beam fabrication.
Bespoke fabrication means that whatever building project is being contemplated, if structural steel beams are a requirement, the architect can design to the space available, rather than be restricted to off the shelf sizes available from a builder’s merchant.
Any shape any length
Because of the size of our workshop, we can manufacture beams of up to 100ft in length. Our fabricators have the skills and expertise to manufacture and install cranked beams, tee beams, single beam and single channel beams.
For more heavier duty load bearing projects, we can manufacture double beams and channels as well as corner lintels and picture frame beams.
In a nutshell, if it is made in steel, we have the skills and expertise to manufacture and fabricate the metal structure you need.
Manufactured to CE standard
We are currently working towards achieving the CE standard, which means that our work is already to the equivalent standard.
Working with architects and builders
We work with you to understand the load bearing weights and wind resistance levels and interpret engineers’ drawings and sketches to manufacture the structural steel beams required to support your designs.
Our metal fabricators are fully skilled and able to read and interpret engineering diagrams and blueprints. We use modern techniques and mechanical engineering fabrication software and equipment to ensure our metalwork meets the exact design specifications.
Timescales and delivery
We will work with you to agree project timescales – though ideally, we’d like time to schedule works, if you have an urgent job we can also help.
We manufacture everything in house and can deliver to site or you can arrange collection. We also have a fully certified building site installation team who can work on your project to install the beams if required.
On the face of it, manufacturing a structural beam is not a complicated process, but should the beam not fit, or not be right for the job, something that is simple can be very costly and time delaying to the overall construction project.
It is important therefore to choose a metal fabricator, like Essential Projects, with the appropriate skills, technology and machinery for the project who can demonstrate testimonials from satisfied customers.
