Architectural Metalwork

Bespoke Architectural Metalwork

With over 25 years in the industry, Canal Architectural have a wide range of skills and experience in bespoke metalwork fabrication. Because of this, we are often asked to manufacture some truly unique and unusual bespoke architectural metalwork.

Our expertise in architectural metalwork has led to the completion of many successful bespoke fabrication projects. These range from simpler designs such as signage and balustrades to complex floating staircases and metalwork sculptures.

Some of our bespoke metalwork projects include:

Canal has a wealth of experience in all areas of custom metalwork fabrication, allowing us to take on many challenges. The company’s roots are in sheet metal work, making this a particular area of expertise and pride. We have invested in the latest computer-controlled laser cutters, press brakes and guillotines, allowing us to create bespoke designs in mild and stainless steel.


  • Innovation in Bespoke Architectural Metalwork

  • The Design Process

The Canal philosophy is to offer the very best practical engineering advice for every required application, making sure that original design concepts are not compromised.

Our natural enthusiasm for real engineering solutions feeds into a structured and focused approach, delivering successful projects that meet all design and safety requirements.

Some of these projects are truly unique one-off pieces, perhaps most vividly demonstrated by some of the metalwork sculptures that Canal has been commissioned to create. We take pride in our ability to get involved at ground level in proposed ‘outside the box’ builds, allowing us to assist in the practical development of solutions.

Our greatest strength lies in turning a design brief into reality. We take on board all requirements to ensure that the finished product is functional, practical, and visually as intended by the designer.

Architectural metalwork examples

Canal’s technical sales personnel work with you from the earliest possible stage of any bespoke fabrication project.

They work alongside the drawing team to develop engineering drawings, samples and prototypes to ensure a smooth transition into manufacture and project delivery.

Once the design has been finalised, we fabricate the required architectural metalwork parts at our Nottingham facility. We use British steel and highly skilled engineers to ensure the best quality. Following sign-off of the completed structure, our dedicated installation team will ensure that everything is assembled properly on your premises, adhering to all relevant health and safety standards.

“I chose Canal Engineering because of their ability to precision fabricate and install within a complex and awkward geometry. They were able to provide us with a finish that has a natural patina whilst also being hardwearing, develop mock ups to help us make the right choice of detail and complete the work within a reasonable budget.”
