Design Service

To lead in our industry requires a broad range of skills including creative design and detailing. Working in collaboration with our partners and customers, often also leaders in their fields, demands great attention to detail. Artistic architectural metalwork can enhance the overall design concept of a building, be it entrance gates, boundary railings or internal fittings such as metal balustrades, handrails and ironmongery.

Topp & Co. offer the services of our design team who are not only dedicated ironwork designers but also have a thorough understanding of the fundamental craft skills of the blacksmith as well as modern metalworking techniques. By combining these skills we aim to create contemporary ironwork which will be the heritage ironwork of future generations. Metalwork designs distinguish themselves through careful attention to detail. Blacksmithing skills are predominant where possible in our work as they not only allow an unparalleled freedom in design and joint detailing but also achieve a lively and graceful three dimensional quality within the section, surface texture and shape of ordinary metal bar. We work three dimensionally enabling us to make sure your project is perfect for you in both style and quality.  By combining our experience and skills in a wide variety of techniques and materials we are often able to provide economical solutions to otherwise complex designs concepts..

When necessary we work with structural engineers to ensure all designs meet the current legislation.

A consultancy service is also available for the restoration, renovation and design of ironwork.
