Major Construction & Refurbishment
Cannon Steels have been specialising in major construction in a comprehensive SUPPLY & FIT service of structural steelwork for over 30 years from small to medium-sized contracts of approx 5 to over 150 tonnes. Our professional and experienced staff from sales to CAD/Tekla detailing to site management supervision ensure you of satisfactory and complete service.
“We have an enquiry, what do we do?”
Do you have a set of Engineer’s drawing’s showing steel section sizes complete with plan elevations? This is what we need from you first. On receipt of the information, we can provide you with a detailed quotation for supply or complete with a provisional site fitting cost subject to the access of crane operation, unloading area and an agreed method of erection. You can either post the hard copy drawings or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Would you attend a site meeting and carry out a site survey for dimensions?”
Yes. On receipt of your site instruction or official order, between our Contracts Manager and our experienced surveyors, we can visit the site, check or determine dimensions subject to certain preparation of construction but setting out and levels must be information provided by others. From the final site dimensions, we can then begin to produce our working drawings. Our Contracts Manager will be more than happy to attend your site meetings to discuss your project requirements, a method of fixing and assist with your building program.
“Do you design steelwork?”
To a degree. All our steelwork prior to manufacturing is firstly drawn on TEKLA/CAD using up to date technology using your Engineer’s final design/drawings for connection designs or include our suggested designs for your/Engineer’s final approval. Following receipt of your approval, we then commence with the manufacture of steelwork. For particular Moment connection points, our appointed Structural Engineer can provide calculations to enforce our design.
“Do you site to fix or just supply?”
Both. The choice is yours. We are more than happy to supply only to be fit by others or provide you with a fitting service. Our specialist steel fixers are fully experienced with erecting steelwork with qualified certificates for use of specialist access plant, slinging and signaling for use with our appointed Crane Hire Companies. We have the added advantage for the use of our 18-tonne rigid delivery vehicles being fitted with a crane offload facility with a reach of up to 15 Meters.
“We have a restricted and awkward site”
No problem. Our appointed Crane Hire Companies will visit the site to assess any access problems and advise of the correct size of crane required to do the job. We can make an application to the Local Authorities for any required parking or road closure permits. Traffic Management control services, parking meter suspension, weekend operating and deliveries and any other unforeseen circumstances can all be overcome.
“How do you consider Health & Safety?”
We deliver and site fix steelwork in accordance with our agreed Method Statement and will produce a Risk Assessment for your approval. If your site requires any specific Health & safety measures, we will be pleased to accommodate within our Statement and cost accordingly, if applicable.
“At the end of the Contract!”
Our Contracts Manager will oversee the project from start to finish assisting you with any eventualities that occur, as they do in the Construction Industry! On completion, we will inspect our works carried to your approval prior to ‘signing off’ as complete to your satisfaction and final hand over.
“What about additional works that are carried out or supplied?”
Any additional requirements either by the supply of materials or works carried out on site will be quoted individually for and held pending your site instruction or confirmation order. This way everything is confirmed and agreed before we carry out the work and you are fully aware of extra costs incurred.
