Our workmen are IPAF 3A & 3B ticketed are all CSCS ticketed. We also partner with a specialist transport and lifting company and as such, we are able to provide a complete fabrication and installation service.
We are capable of producing high relief patterned or sculpted surfaces that can be integrated into built objects or environments. Patterns can be directly tooled into the material or used for repeatable casting.
Materials used for direct tooling include timber, MDF, tricoya, plywood, plastics, laminates and non-ferrous metals. Large areas can be assembled from multiple interlocking panels.
Repeatable/reusable designs are machined in high density modelling board, from which rubber moulds are made for casting purposes.
