Design & Fabrication

When a demanding and challenging project requires structural steel fabrication for a lifting application, clients turn to our unmatched capabilities to meet their complex design-build requirements.

As a recognised industry leader in the fabrication, design, engineering, and erection of structural steel across Ireland and the UK, the core priority of our company is to successfully exceed client expectation by focusing innovation, knowledge and commitment on every commercial, industrial and public structure we assemble.

We have extensive knowledge of every aspect of steel fabrication and have completed the successful delivery of countless crane and lifting structures, up to 100 tonnes in weight. Welding operatives are trained to coded specifications with considerable experience of NDT testing by dye pen, MPI, radiography and ultrasonic inspection.

As well as lifting solutions, we also have the ability to manufacture:

  • Handrailing
  • Barriers, gates and kicker plates
  • Safety covers for sumps
  • Open mesh and chequer plate flooring
  • Access ladders
  • Staircases
  • Platforms
  • Lifting gantries (fully tested)
  • Heavy structures
  • Test weights

All our steel fabrication work has CE marking approval up to EXC4, and our well-equipped and highly skilled fabricators can complete the following types of work to the highest standard:

  • Primary structural steelwork
  • Welded engineering assemblies
  • Secondary metalwork
  • Water processing structures
  • Cranes, bridges, walkways & support structures

Within a number of fabrication facilities throughout the UK and Ireland, we have the latest CNC cutting, milling and drilling machinery, together with extensive welding facilities and a flexible workforce able to work 24/7 to complete large fabrication contracts within demanding timescales when required. Services available in-house include laser, plasma and CNC cutting, milling, drilling and welding.

Turnkey steel fabrication projects

We are able to offer a full range of services to accompany our fabrication products, from ‘supply only’ to turnkey project management encompassing the complete project lifecycle. This capability is illustrated by the projects we support, including supplying fabrications to the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), water industry, renewable power generation industry, nuclear, rail, processing, electrical, manufacturing, and materials handling sectors.

Design calculations, FEA and third-party verification

WH Scott & Son can offer design and consultancy services for lifting structures and cranes. This includes full design calculations, finite element analysis and fatigue/stress analysis. This allows us to offer a project manager and single point of contact for your entire project through the design and delivery cycle.

Standards, safety and traceability

Our CE marking approval ensures we are well placed to tackle structures of all types, whether for critical applications or standard, we can adapt our approach seamlessly to provide high quality fabrications to a rigorous standard.

WH Scott & Son provides full material and component traceability as standard with every fabrication, with the business tracking and tracing from initial sourcing from trusted suppliers, all the way through the various stages of production to the finished fabrication and final delivery to site. This provides all customers with a quality benchmark, and a proof of expertise regarding every fabricated product.
