Our working process is simple. If you already have designs, we can use your drawings to build to your exact specification. If you have an idea, or even a project concept which has yet to have any creative input, our team of designers, project managers and engineers will work with you to develop your ideas into a fully fledged design ready for fabrication and construction. Our understanding of materials, technology and construction, alongside our creative approach enables us to develop even the most challenging of concepts.

A

Concept & Design Development

Whether your vision is complete or scrawled on scrap paper, our design team are able to turn an idea into fully formed designs, ready to make. Our CAD technicians work with a wide range of 2D and 3D drawing packages including AutoCad, Sketch Up and Inventor, allowing them to provide detailed and accurate information to our workshop team. They have an extensive understanding of materials, build processes and finishes and work closely with our workshop team to ensure that the best creative solutions are found and that even the most challenging of designs can be realised.

To assist you in visualising your designs before we begin fabrication, we can provide you with visual renders, 360 rotations, exploded drawings of plans, and even 3D walkthroughs allowing you to have a virtual tour of your design. Our visits to the installation site enable us to create designs that take into account environment, site access and loading requirements. During the design process, we also consider how the built structures will be removed, disposed of, stored and whether they will be repeatedly used or re-purposed as we understand the impact of all these factors upon design, fabrication and, ultimately, budget.

Using our fabrication, construction and design expertise, we are able to work through the benefits and limitations of a range of materials with you allowing you to see and touch finishes for your design, until we pin point which materials and finish is most applicable for your project, taking into account use, transportation, budget, environment and audience.

Fabrication & Installation

Our team of CNC operators carpenters, engineers, welders, spray painters, scenic painters, upholsterers and finishing specialists are capable of building everything – from a piece of bespoke furniture to a flying saucer. We provide the highest standard of finish while thinking innovatively when faced with unusual or complex builds. Our in-house facilities plus partnerships with some of the largest suppliers in the industry allow us to facilitate every aspect of the fabrication process to a meticulous standard of finish.

CNC Machining

Our Multicam CNC routing machine has only a 0.2mm tolerance, auto tool changers, split chamber vacuum beds and high power spindles allowing us to produce your designs with incredible accuracy, at high speed .
Programmed by our AutoCAD construction and fabrication specialists and operated by skilled CNC technicians, we can transform even a rough sketch into a precision engineered 3D reality.

Metalwork

Our team of metalwork engineers specialise in MIG/ARC/TIG welding, plate-work and both heavy and light gauge rolling and forming and our CNC machinists are skilled at working with steel and aluminium sheet materials. From huge metal structures to smaller components of a multi-material piece, our metal engineering workshop allows us to create bespoke staging, custom installations, shop fittings and stage sets.

Joinery

Our experienced team of carpenters and joiners are highly skilled allowing us to offer a vast range of joinery and carpentry services. Using both modern and traditional wood work techniques, our services stretch from assembling CNC components, veneering and hand finishing to creating gigantic set structures from timber.

Specialist Finishes

We are experts in sourcing specialist finishes in a huge range of unusual materials and colour matching with brand identities. We can also provide high quality spray paint finishing; from high gloss and metallics to super flat matt, our paint finishes can elevate your designs to the next level.

Scenic Design & Prop Making

We are lucky to have some of the UKs leading prop makers and scenic painters on board, allowing us to create awe inspiring and boundary pushing props, sets and stages. They've realised projects ranging from entire immersive worlds to bespoke sets for high end sportswear launches. Working closely with our design, workshop and installation teams from the outset of a project enables our prop makers and scenic painters to really push the limits of creativity and produce truly unique work.

Project Management

We will liaise with you throughout the fabrication and construction process, allowing for flexibility when it comes to changes in design and production even during the fabrication and construction process.

In preparation for the installation and delivery of your project, we are able to test-build your designs in our workshop to allow for client approval, light and sound testing, rehearsals, and design development.

Our team of experienced site installers are able to deliver and build your project on site, adhering to health and safety procedures and supplying risk assessments as standard. We hold extensive public liability insurance and can provide the necessary certification for relevant materials.

Our and production managers will work hand in hand with you throughout your project, liaising with you about solutions and progress, being on hand for meetings and presentations ensuring that you win pitches and delivering above and beyond expectations. Their in-depth knowledge of the event industry ensures that what we deliver is on time, to budget and is a true representation of your creative vision.

Integrated technical solutions

Our expert team of technical minds have worked on everything from TV sets and stage shows to concerts and shop displays. We have a wealth of experience in video mapping, LED lighting, virtual reality, holograms and interactive displays. We pride ourselves in seamlessly integrating technology into props sets and displays, utilising the latest technology innovations to further enhance a brand's presence or the impact of a stage. Though our ongoing R&D we have created several 'off-the-shelf' technical products, including our ever popular Lucid Lines range.
