Consultancy

Our extensive knowledge of architecture and architectural metalwork is supported by 35 years of practical experience and retaining some of the most traditional skills and techniques we continue to develop and apply them to the contemporary environment. We offer consultancy in traditional, contemporary and restoration fields including:

  • Condition & impact damage survey reports
  • Design specification, including traditional construction detailing, from old images for the authentic replacement of salvaged ironwork
  • New and period style designs

We frequently deliver lectures and wide-ranging advice to key bodies in industry and education.

CPD: Professionals often have to comply with regulations regarding Continuing Professional Development, as a part of their career enhancement and Topp & Co are able to offer CPD lectures on a variety of metalworking subjects to architects and surveyors, usually in their own offices.

LECTURES: Topp & Co regularly give lectures on ironwork, materials and techniques to college courses, post graduate students, conservation officers and architects. From the history of the use of iron in building, through the manufacture and processing of ancient irons, to the best materials and techniques for use in contemporary ironwork designs, we can offer an informed opinion, illustrated with relevant images. We can deal with issues concerning technical advice in the use of metals, materials and techniques regarding both historic and modern work and advice on specification for tender procedure, in order to procure metalwork of quality.
