B&R design & build various bespoke metal fabrications and this is one of the fastest growing areas of the business for both commercial and private clients. On the majority of commercial projects that employ our core disciplines we are also the go to for various bespoke items in which clients prefer our professional approach to these unique smaller items. The items we have recently completed on commercial projects in and around London and the South East include the following.
We have our own patented louvre blade which has meant we have been the choice louvre fabricator and installer on some high profile projects including Bank of America and Hendon Police Academy. We have made louvres in excess of 20m long and 5m high and are involved from early design stage with the consultant to ensure the concept development runs smoothly from start to finish.
- Electrical boxes
We have completed bespoke electrical boxes to a high specification on a number of projects including at the Imperial War museum, MACE’s 5 Broadgate project and more recently we have designed and produced a number of electrical boxes to sit under the road at a project in Kings Cross which included hydraulic access as well as reinforced to be able to withstand 1000kg.
- Access platforms/CAT ladders
These are the most commonly required items on site and we have completed many access platforms and ladders across many projects. Most notably we have completed a number of bespoke access solutions at the Houses of Parliament & Great Ormond Street Hospital as these are two of our longest running projects. Most are made from approved drawings (Clients or B&Rs) and are from galvanised steel with accompanying handrails.
- Handrails and Balustrades
Again a commonly required item on many of our commercial sites and some higher end residential properties. We can supply and make these in a variety of materials also incorporating glass to add the finishing touches to a project.
- Architectural Cladding
We have provided architectural cladding for a number of premises including shops and restaurants. More recently we have been working on a project at the Bank of America Meryll Lynch to clad two cabling flues to roof level. We have been involved since conception with the architect and have designed a unique interlocking system using anodised aluminium panels. We have also designed and had a patent approved on a louvre blade that will be apart of the final flue.
The above are just a few of the commercial items our clients ask us to make. Our goal when making these items is to provide the client with high quality and unique pieces which can commonly become a headache to many principal contractors when their resources are tied into managing the larger M&E, and Builders work elements of design and build contracts.
In Addition To bespoke items on a commercial scale we have seen an increase in demand from High Net worth individuals across the London area who are now hiring contractors with commercial pedigree in order to attain the highest quality finish. With many now spending large amounts on the purchase of their properties it seems only reasonable that they are spending proportionally similar amounts on those key items that finish of the property and give it that wow factor.
We have recently completed work on a number of private homes for which we provided a number of bespoke items including automated steel gates, railings, steel spiral staircase with laser cut treads, plant room access ladders, a bespoke steel & glass BBQ area, a steel frame for a water feature, mezzanine floors, structural steel for a summer house and architectural aluminium cladding and even sets of solid stainless steel weight sets. We have recently invested in a new factory in north Kent which means we can be in and around London within 30 minutes for surveying, delivering & installing these bespoke items. We can also design and draw anything you envisage and also provide the structural calculations if necessary to ensure that your idea can and will work.
