We offer a full design, build and install package for primary structural steelwork projects, whether is for civil construction, building, architectural or free-standing metal structural work.

ECS has provided the steel work for some of the world’s most iconic venues, artworks, bridges, buildings and stadia, plus a huge range of small projects, all of which we are happy to take on.

Typical projects include:

  • Gantries and frameworks for the power generation industry.
  • Structural steel buildings across all market sectors.
  • Project size typically up to 1,500T.

We work as a direct supplier, and as a fabrication service subcontractor to larger engineering and civils contractors where our skill-set can offer value to their projects.

CNC sawing and drilling capabilities are matched with punches and plasma cutters offering both speed and precision. NSSS5 and ISO 1090 Execution Class 4 (EXC) standards are adopted throughout all our processes.

Our accreditation to EXC4 highlights our exceptional capability, with our fabrications work suitable for use in potentially high-risk structures such as bridges, power plants or stadiums. Full traceability is offered as standard, providing total transparency from initial order to final delivery on-site.

This capability is further illustrated by the clients we supply, which include the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), the Environment Agency, government institutions, nuclear power and water authorities. For many of these customers, we operate as preferred framework contractors with regards to steelwork fabrications.

With such a breadth of expertise, ECS can provide a full turnkey service for primary structural steel fabrications. The proximity between our design office and our fabrication shop allows design tolerances and parameters to be achieved via a fully integrated approach, guaranteeing total accuracy and suitability for application.

Working regularly for key players in the construction, water control, rail and infrastructure sectors, ECS also holds a unique multi-disciplinary understanding of structural specification for a huge variety of applications. This means we can provide an ideal structural solution, for each individual application.
