PRODUCTION & FINISHES 

PRODUCTION

FROM START-TO-FINISH


We are the ultimate metalworks solution for every architectural and design project; the one-stop shop where we bring your architectural and design vision from sketch to reality, fluidly and seamlessly while eliminating the unexpected. As the all-in-one solution, it means we can control the project — from costs to installation — every step of the way. Additionally, as off-site fabricators we ensure precise fit, finish and integration prior to installation, reviewed and approved by you before it leaves our facility, managing all coordination with other site trades.

PRELIMINARY ESTIMATES, VALUE ENGINEERING, OR FIRM QUOTES

 

Our dedicated sales and estimating team will work with you to develop either a ballpark estimate or detailed schedule and quote depending on your current needs. If required, we can suggest value engineering approaches that can help your project stay as true to your vision as possible. This will help you sell your idea to your client and allow you to manage your budget accurately at an early stage.

A DEDICATED PROJECT MANAGER FROM CONCEPT TO INSTALLATION

Once contracted, your project will be assigned a dedicated project manager and other team members as required. The project manager is directly responsible for your project from concept development through to final installation. Since all of our projects are custom and pre-fabricated in our production facility, your project manager will keep you up-to-date on the progress of your project through photography, video, or in-person review.

PROTOTYPING
 
We are firm believers in “design through making” and undertake an iterative prototyping approach to refine the seen and unseen elements that make up a complex project.  In order to ensure that you are satisfied before launching full production, representative prototypes or full-scale mockups are fabricated and submitted to you for approval in order to verify materials, assembly details, and finishing techniques.

 

BRINGING YOUR SKETCHES TO LIFE

Our innovations grow out of your visions, so we encourage you to work with us from day one. Send us your early sketches, renderings, or drawings and together we can make your architectural dreams a reality. As collaborators, we’ll help refine your concept by providing input on possible material choices, finishes, details, and fabrication approaches, and point out possible challenges so they can be dealt with early on.

TESTING, FITTING, AND CLIENT REVIEW

We will pre-assemble and stage your project in our facility to ensure a smooth and efficient install on site. In addition to assuring quality, fit, and finish, this allows our installation team to fully immerse themselves in the details and rehearse the installation sequence before anything leaves our shop.  This is also an opportunity to have meaningful reviews with you and your client, other stakeholders, and any associated trades.

WORLDWIDE FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS

Pre-fabrication is essential to our process and your project is engineered to knock down to a practical size for shipping. All projects are carefully packed in custom crates, bags, or boxes, by our skilled warehouse team to ensure they look as good when they get to your door as they do when they leave our facility. Our logistics team directs shipping by air, ground, or sea, anywhere in the world, using hourly delivery tracking and our own international brokers to ensure your deliveries are on time.
