COMMERCIAL STRUCTURAL FABRICATION
Steel for Home Extension in Slough, Berkshire
Smaller scale steel projects, such as a house extension, require just as much care and attention as larger scale ones.
The customer contacted MAH Steel, needing fabricated steel for house extension with Hiab lift. This particular job needed to be drawn for site dimensions, which the customer provided.
We’re not only a steel fabricator company, but also a leading steel supplier in Kent and South East! So, the fabricated steel was in stock and was processed very quickly.
Our steel workshop received the order, then the steel was then selected from our large stock facility. After that, it was then fork lifted to be cut, checked off against the cutting list and then sawn to the correct length. As is the case with all jobs, our saw man doesn’t often get things wrong!
The cut lengths were then transferred to our busy fabrication area, where it was checked by the steel fabrication team to ensure the steels for the house extension were the correct cut length before the fabrication process began.
The cut ends were cleaned up, then the relevant end plates and connections were introduced to the steel fabrication process.
Only after all that, the fabrication, steel welding and drilling was thoroughly checked to ensure that holes, plates and fabrication specifications were adhered to and that they lined up as required. We ensure accuracy at every stage of the steel fabrication process.
We then sandblasted the steels for painting. Sandblasting, sometimes known as abrasive blasting, is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants.
After that, they were hung in the yard to dry – one step closer to the finish line!
Prior to loading, the painted fabricated steel is then visually checked again, that all steel was correctly fabricated to requirements. Like we said earlier, the quality control undergo on every stage of every project.
Then steel fixings, bolts, nuts, washers and packing plates are added to complete the job. If there are any defects, they get highlighted. By the way, there were none noted on this job, so fabricated steel was loaded onto our 15 metre Hiab lorry. The driver checked the load ready for an early start, and then it was delivered to site and placed where the customer needed it. Nicely on the driveway!
