As a specialist fabricator, we know the importance of an integrated approach from blueprint to finished product. For this reason, we have situated our design team adjacent to our fabrication facility, ensuring that both teams can work seamlessly to ensure your fabrication meets its design parameters and the performance that you require. Such proximity promotes discussion between production and design departments, to allow the perfect realisation of final designs.


ECS design and engineering teams have great experience in the design of steel structures and prefabricated composite products, including automation control systems and electrical equipment. This enables the business to handle the entirely of a design process, ensuring consistency from one total solution provider.

ECS has an experienced team of Chartered Engineers and CAD Technicians that:

  • Provide cost effective solutions.
  • Give an emphasis on design for production.
  • Use the latest 3D BIM compatible structural design and drawing software.
  • Ensures a seamless link to production equipment via NC data.
  • Adhere to the relevant ISO, BS, WIMES and CE standards.

Transmission of information is linear, ensuring a fast response towards any fabrications design project. At the start of a project, we ensure clear information is available to all parties. For instance, we can pass the initial drawings through our highly experienced design office, converting blueprints into CAD files and double-checking all the dimensions and details. This enables our customers to confirm shapes and tolerances before fabrication and other physical work begins, thus providing an additional layer of reassurance for the client and all other partners in the project.

Our design engineers are highly experienced, having helped to provide support to institutions such as the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), the Environment Agency, regional water authorities, drainage boards, nuclear power and many more.
