For over 55 years, Fordingbridge have proudly handled the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke steel and glulam structures from their West Sussex factory
With specialists in a variety of sectors including education, healthcare, sport and hospitality, Fordingbridge proudly work collaboratively with architects and specifiers to help achieve clients’ briefs and bring them to fruition. The business operate a full design and manufacture facility, ensuring that your next project will not only be cost effective, but have the aesthetics and quality required for your design.
Operating nationwide, Fordingbridge steel and glulam structures can be seen in multiple schools, retailers, hospitals, logistics centres and leisure establishments throughout the UK and Ireland. With a renewed focus on the importance of maximising outside space, the importance of correctly specifying the appropriate product has never been more significant. A far cry from mass-produced, “off-the-shelf” products, the Fordingbridge canopy offering instead efficiently combines standard components and sections to provide a bespoke, structurally engineered solution fit for any environment.
“Handling the complete process in-house has a multitude of benefits for the many architectural practices we collaborate with,” explains Stephen Toone, Managing Director of the firm. “We work with them from the outset to ensure the brief is met and that a cost effective, inspiring and structurally sound product is the end result. As our design and manufacture process is internal, we can tweak designs throughout the planning stage, and provide the necessary input early in the process to ensure our element of the wider project is a success. This is especially true within our work in education and healthcare,” Toone continues, “where the importance of collaborating with a Principal Contractor and providing the necessary information from the outset can have a huge positive bearing on the project as a whole, especially when often working to a tight programme.”
