Metalwork fabrication is a broad term referring to processes involving cutting, shaping or moulding metals into a final product. It is a specialist process that requires expertly trained staff and cutting-edge machinery. Metal components are widely available in a variety of dimensions and materials including sheet metal, metal rods and metal bars.
For the most part, good metalwork fabrication shops can produce products in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Manufacturers often require a non-standard component or a unique metal product which means they need custom fabrication services. It provides them with design and production assistance for built-to-order parts.
Metalwork fabrication, often referred to as sheet metalwork, encompasses a wide range of skills and disciplines. These include profiling, bending and forming, cropping, coded welding, assembly and painting.

- Steel gates
At PRV Engineering, we believe that functional steelwork can, and should, look stylish and complement its environment. We have the knowledge, skills and experience to assess your specific requirements and design architectural steelwork to enhance your project.
We have provided unparalleled metalwork fabrication services to vastly different customers from factories and warehouses to offices, schools, medical facilities, retail units, sports facilities and residential buildings. Whatever the project, we maintain consistently high standards throughout in terms of attention to detail, reliable service and exceptional quality.
Metalwork Fabrication In Construction and Architectural Engineering
The construction industry and the architectural engineering sector are two of the toughest industries in the world today. Designs are often complex and demanding with the final product requiring the highest integrity and capable of withstanding all sorts of conditions.
Due to the very nature of these industries, the materials must be strong and durable. For this very reason, much of this type of metalwork fabrication is done in cold, rolled steel, mild steel, and stainless steel. The latter is often used for its superior resistance to weather, strength and cosmetic appearance, especially brushed stainless steel.
There is no denying that the construction industry is dangerous to work in from a health and safety perspective. The fact that PRV Engineering has a spotless H&S record, internally and on all external construction projects, means clients who are looking for quality suppliers are in excellent hands. We meet all necessary construction industry HSE regulations including CDM.
