Specialist Steelwork Fabrication
FLA work on large specialist fabrications for commercial, architectural and residential clients. We have supplied steelwork and assemblies for the Olympics, stores in nearby Gloucester Quays retail development and other bespoke commercial briefs.
Design and specification advice for bespoke steelwork
Ian and his team offer one-to-one design, specification and assembly advice on any project you may have involving structural steel assemblies. We can make the essential design and specification changes to achieve final manufacture of the product, working through the project with your architect.
Transferable skills – our work on a contemporary bridge design
Our steel processing experience also transfers to large residential projects. At Broughton Poggs Mill in Oxfordshire, a pedestrian feature bridge was planned for a large garden.
From trial assembly to installation of steel sections
The design was based on a twisting tubular undercarriage made from spray painted mild steel – in total nearly 40ft long with welded handrails and walkway supports. To achieve the variance in radii required, FLA trialled and then pre-assembled a design that involved sectioning the tube, splitting it, twisting it and then welding. The final bridge was spray painted at FLA, then transferred to site where full installation was completed and supervised.
“Ian is our go-to steel man really. We know we won’t end up having to compromise. Ian doesn’t make a drama out of a crisis – very relaxed to work with and very professional.” Avril Payne, Broughton Poggs Mill.
