We offer a structural steelwork design service including portal frames and balcony structures in collaboration with architects and structural engineers, achieving fabrication drawings from which the structures can be manufactured.

Structural floor steels, Abington Street, Northampton, for Kingsmith Steel Ltd.

This is an example of a steelwork structure made up of universal beams and columns, bolted together for ease of construction. The design was modelled on Tekla Structures and drawings sent electronically for approval and fabrication. The image on the left is a screen shot of this model.

Richmond roof steels

Roof steels, Richmond, for Kingsmith Steel Ltd.

This is an example of a steelwork structure made up of universal beams and square hollow section posts with pressed Z-section purlins. Tekla Structures was utilized in this case due to the complex geometry involved and this enabled the cleats joining the beams to be designed and positioned with accuracy. Very few problems occurred with the erection on site, enabling completion ahead of schedule. The finish to the main structural steels is zinc phosphate primer and the Z-section purlins are galvanized.
