Structural Steelwork

Taunton Fabrications has the flexibility to offer a comprehensive structural steel service to compliment our architectural division.

Primary Structural steelwork

Our structural steelwork division has seen rapid growth over recent years and we are now recognised for Structural steel framing, and medium span portals of up to 500 tonnes.

Compliant with British Standard EN 1090:2009 + A1:2011, our structural steel division uses the latest Advanced Steel 3D modelling software making the production process extremely efficient. Material is mostly supplied in a shot blasted and primer painted finish using our own in-house painting facilities and where coating thicknesses are electronically measured and recorded. We can also offer sections in a multi-coat finish, fire protection coatings and hot dipped galvanized finishes.

Taunton Fabrications were delighted to have been awarded the structural steelwork and architectural metalwork package for this project, which included delivering an impressive 120 tonne structural steel fa├žade.

Bretonside, Plymouth

Mclaren Construction appointed us to provide 350 tonnes of structural steel to be installed into the primary frame. Providing support to the seating of the new 12 screen multiplex, the steelwork was phased and installed with tracked spider cranes.

The General, Bristol

Over a 5 year period we have worked with City & Country on both the refurbishment and new build developments. This phase of works in BGH 04 included 130 tonnes of structural steels phased to meet the developers build sequence.

Secondary Structures

Contractors often choose us for our ability to offer a total metalwork package solution which would include both secondary and architectural packages.

Secondary metalwork ties in usually with the concrete framing. We are able to handle the most complex of structures and examples are shown in the following Featured Projects


Building re-development requires a different approach than new build. We work closely with the structural engineers to realise a solution from sometimes limited detail.

We can carry out digital surveys of existing buildings to ensure steel detailing is very accurate. The method of installation and logistical constraints need to be understood at the outset and we have years of experience of installing structural Steelwork into existing buildings. Our attention to on-site health & safety considerations is paramount at all times.
