WE ARE FORGING MATTERS
We design and create bespoke metalwork, staircase balustrades and architectural bronze work.
Forging Matters has over 20 years’ experience in the metalwork trade.
We mainly serve London and the South of England but we can be tempted further aﬁeld by projects that capture our imagination.
We excel at managing bespoke projects and creating complex three dimensional work and we know how to translate customers’ concepts into the required components to make them a reality.
The trained craftsmen in our workshop are dedicated to achieving the highest quality in every aspect of their work. This commitment is built into all of our procedures and processes, and it shows in the ﬁnished result.
It does also influence lead times as there are practical limits to how far we can expand production without affecting the quality of the work.
Lead times range from 3 to 4 weeks to 3 to 4 months depending on the project and the work load at the time of order. A premium service is available to accommodate tight deadlines where practically possible but we recommend getting us on board early on in the project: production slots can be reserved for 10% of the project value and our input at this stage can help with smooth integration of the work later on.
Initial consultations and designs are provided free of charge.
Metalwork is priced up front based on material costs and estimated manufacturing time, there are no hidden or extra charges unless there is a clear change to the project specifications that we both agree to in writing. Please see the commissioning blog for more details.
