What are the Benefits of Investing in Custom Metalwork?

 

There’s no shortage of places to purchase shoddy factory-built metalworking. However, you shouldn’t opt for that route.

Iron Age Manufacturing Ltd has the tools, experience, and expertise needed to craft beautiful structures that will set your business apart from your neighbors. Doing so will help draw clients to your property. Imagine your upscale Italian restaurant surrounded by iron fencing and accompanying railings. It will add a rustic, classical touch to your business.

Case Study: BCIT

When the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) asked us to create a safe and attractive railing to wrap around the top of one of their buildings, we didn’t hesitate. Our custom designed exterior structural guard railings allow for secure access to the rooftop while maintaining the modern look of the building.

Challenge

It was important to have minimal disruption for the students studying during the day.

It was integral to protect the surroundings because site welding was required.

It was a tight deadline and rain could have hampered the pace, especially for our on-site welder.

As it was done overnight and, on the roof, extra precautions needed to be incorporated.

Outcome

We opted to work overnight and after hours, to minimize disruption.

Extra measures were incorporated to accommodate the extra protection required.

A cover was brought in to ensure no delays occurred.

Lighting equipment was brought in and our welder was in safety harness gear, in order to work safely in the dark.

Case Study: VanDusen Gardens

We may not be able to compete with the natural beauty, but we’re excited to have shared a small part in making the VanDusen Botanical Gardens the stunning landmark it is today.

Challenge

Working carefully with the client’s Designer, we designed, advised and worked up specific technical information to support the overall design.

Traffic control was tricky, due to this being a public installation.

A restricted time limit and a unique design made for challenging conditions.

Outcome

A variety of installations were done including: stainless steel bike racks, a water feature and cable railings.

By regularly communicating with our client, we were able to deal with any surprises efficiently.

Working closely with the City of Vancouver we were able to ensure traffic control ran smoothly.

By consulting with the Designer before and during the project, the appropriate information was exchanged.

Case Study: West Hotel

When you’re offered the opportunity to design, build and install an exterior staircase on a heritage hotel, you don’t refuse because it’s an opportunity of a lifetime! Which is why we were thrilled to replace the escape spiral staircase and match the stairs to the antique style of the West Hotel.

Challenge

To ensure safety while maintaining the integrity of the design.

Managing to build and install while limited on space, in a very narrow alley.

We needed to lift parts up the narrow back alley, as part of the project.

Managing the work while in a very high traffic zone of downtown Vancouver.

Outcome

We created special brackets to anchor into the old brick.

By carefully planning our installation and design, we were able to deal with the lack of space without issue.

By collaborating with other contractors, we were able to tackle the difficult task, smoothly.

Working closely with the City of Vancouver, we were able to manage the traffic difficulties.

Preparing for risk and building a safety management plan for this project was the key to our success.
