Designing a new structure with non-standard structural components? You need an experienced custom metal fabrication company who can design, draw, and manufacture the platforms and structures that will ultimately shape and support your construction. And, hiring the right metal fabrication company is key to your project’s success. So, how do you choose the best metal fabrication company for your project? Here are some questions for consideration:
Do you need a local metal fabricator? While it’s not necessary to choose a metal fabrication company based on proximity to the job site, it helps. And in some cases, it may be specified in the contract. The benefit of choosing a local custom metal fabricator is logistics. A local company should already know the area’s building codes and the logistics of building in that town. Of course, if the company is local, it will be much easier to conduct meetings about the project.
Does the metal fabricator have the resources to handle the job? Check out their portfolio- has the contractor worked on similar projects? The metal fabrication company should be able to provide key insights or suggestions for any special nuances your building may have. Can the company support your project from design to steel fabrication, to steel erection to structural steel detailing, or do they outsource certain parts of the project? Whatever fabricator you choose should be able to handle the needs of your job without risk of delays or downtime.
Do they have safety standards and protocols in place and do they have a good safety score?
Personal safety for every employee and visitor to the job site is a must. A company who focuses on employee safety is more inclined to ensure strict quality control standards as well.
