Custom Architectural Fabrication Experts

Published Tuesday, July 14, 2020

There are some projects that call for a special finishing touch. A newly opened shopping mall, hospital, or other public building gains social, economic, and cultural value when its unveiling is honoured by a custom fabricated metal statue or sculpture. Heritage buildings and those designed to replicate structures from an earlier era deliver a more authentic experience when their railings, light fixtures, and garden gates are indistinguishable from the originals. 

At VeriForm, we have years of experience in metal fabrication and design for custom architectural projects. We use components like metal bars, rods, sheet metal, wood, and composites to create a sculpture, shape, canopy, or building accent that leaves an unforgettable impression on viewers. You can rely on expert assistance from our skilled team at all stages of your project. 

Benefits of custom metal fabrication and design

Custom metal projects are built to last. When you work with us at VeriForm, you get a product that is designed and made according to your specifications and will work with a single team that helps you complete the entire process, from manufacturing to installation. We have the ability to produce designs made from multiple materials, including metals, wood, composites, lighting, and glass.

Our custom metal fabrication and design services include:

  • CAD design: Our experts are proficient in design software like CAD/CAM and Solidworks™ and can work with an existing drawing or create a new one for your approval.
  • Laser cutting: Our CNC laser cutting service is capable of cutting up to ¾” x 80” x 160” with accuracy of +/- 0.005in, ensuring high accuracy in the outcome.
  • Press brake bending: Our brake forming services can bend and shape metal up to 21 feet wide, allowing us to work on projects of higher size and scope.
  • Fitting, welding, and assembly: We shape your vision and install it according to your specifications, keeping excellence in mind the entire time.

In addition to custom artwork like statues and sculptures, we create sophisticated and unique architectural elements such as canopies, column covers, corner guards, handrails, and other enhancements to interior and exterior spaces. No matter what type of project, we work closely with you to achieve the desired effect.
