BS Steels has steel installation teams working and available across Southern England on many contracts daily. From smaller contractors and local builders, from pure installation to challenging installations on major projects, we offer a range of services all aiming to ensure the most effective and safest implementation of our clients’ steelwork needs.

Larger steelwork projects: we see the ‘big picture’

Through extensive experience in installation of larger steelwork projects, BS Steels understands their intricacies, and how critical it is for all involved to work together to achieve an optimal result, taking into account time, cost and safety.

Typically, when tendering for a larger project, we will meet up and ‘walk the route’ at the outset; we will aim to quote on the basis of getting the job completed, advising on the full requirements, and not excluding essential elements to be brought in later as ‘extras’; and we would expect to take responsibility on site for planning and coordinating the steelwork.

When implementing refurbishment projects, we will consider with the structural engineer the safety and integrity of the original structure at all times.

In summary, we look to give our clients maximum reassurance that their project will be implemented in as TIMELY a manner as possible, as SAFELY as possible, and as COST EFFECTIVELY as possible.

We are a CHAS-accredited contractor. We are fully validated on Builders Profile database for PQQ information.

Supporting the smaller contractor, local builder
