Steel fabrication at PRV Engineering

steel fabrication construction siteAlthough the construction of steel buildings began way back in the 20th century, their use became more widespread during World War II and significantly expanded after the war when steel became more readily available.

Steel buildings have been widely accepted, in part due to cost efficiency. What’s more, the range of application has expanded with improved materials, products and design capabilities and with the availability of computer aided design software.

Here at PRV Engineering we offer a first-class steel framework fabrication and concreting service. Designed as an extension to the services we already provide for the construction industry, and for businesses that are very cost conscious, we believe our new facility is the ideal solution.

Metal Fabrication and its Importance

example of metal fabricationMetal Fabrication and its Importance in our Lives

The word “fabrication” means to make something from raw material. In the case of metal fabrication, that raw material is, unsurprisingly, metal. The material used in metal fabrication will however have already been processed from its true raw state into a usable raw material format such as metal sheet, rod, or bar.

Fabrication differs from assembling. Rather than using a processed raw material, the assembly process uses parts or components specifically made for the purpose. Assembly is however an operation that is included in the art of fabrication. Continue reading

New Steel Framework Fabrication and Concreting Service from PRV Engineering

Steel framework imageThe new steel framework fabrication and concreting service is yet another example of how PRV’s CEO Simon Jones won’t give the grass any chance to grow beneath the company’s feet. Following hot on the heels of recent new investments in the latest state of the art CNC machinery costing in excess of £1 million, this new venture demonstrates Simon’s passion and resolve for continuous expansion and diversification.

If you want Something Doing Right …

PRV have recently had their factory extended. But rather than waiting for someone else to provide the new steelwork frame and concreting, they took the bull by the horns and did it themselves. Drawings and specifications were provided by fully qualified architects, and PRV poured the concrete, and manufactured and erected the steelwork, all to specification. “It gives you more control over the process, including the timing”, said Simon, “and you know what they say? – If you want something doing right – do it yourself”!

Metalwork Fabrication at its Very Best from PRV Engineering

Metalwork Fabrication at its Very Best from PRV Engineering

 Metalwork Fabrication is a skilled, specialist operation, and not one that enough people first associate with PRV Engineering. Maybe that’s because our expertise in other engineering services such a deep hole drilling get more publicity. But here at PRV Engineering, we offer a complete metalwork engineering service that includes the very best in metalwork fabrication.

It might come as some surprise to learn that our metalwork fabrication department regularly turns out a whole range of beautifully finished, fabricated metal products that include: Continue reading
