Rigby Jones has a long track record of working with architects and designers to achieve outstanding results with architectural steel. Our extensive in-house capability allows us to push the boundaries of steel bending, rolling and cutting so we can meet the specification of your design.
We pride ourselves on our ability to provide an honest evaluation and custom solution for your project. Our team will recommend the best processing method to achieve the finish you require. For instance, we are able to form steel to various shapes, providing a more aesthetically pleasing look in comparison to straight lines and edges achieved when welding.
Partner in design
We’re always happy to do that little bit extra to make sure we meet our clients’ requirements. And we understand that when it comes to architectural steel, those requirements may change as the project progresses.
We work in consultation with both your design team and the fabrication team to ensure the best outcome for the project. At Rigby Jones, we have a process that guarantees flexibility for our clients.
Rigby Jones has the largest plate processing capability in NSW and the expertise to produce highly specialised and bespoke steel work.
Our prefabrication service means your project is delivered on site ready to install. Quality is the hallmark of all our work so you know that if it’s made by Rigby Jones, it’s made to work.
Our work in architectural spiral staircases is a showcase of both our quality and capacity.
We’ve delivered complex custom solutions for projects at Quay Quarters and Barangaroo in Sydney.
The Quay Quarters project features 34 stair flights, measuring on average 5.2 metres in diameter and 3.7 metres tall, providing open connectivity between floors.
The centrepiece of the Barangaroo Tower 2 foyer is a complex 50 tonne feature spiral staircase with exposed steel and a curved balustrade glass.
We worked with a successful engineering business in Sydney to prefabricate curved 32mm steel.
Going the extra mile
We’ve recently worked with a designer on a restaurant installation that included a wall of raw steel. During the handling and bending process the steel pressings were being marked and scratched.
This is not unusual and wouldn’t be an issue in most applications, but this was a feature piece and we needed those imperfections to be minimised as much as possible.
We used a PVC coating during the bending process to protect the steel during the bending process and delivered the desired result. It was a simple yet effective solution and just one example of how we always go the extra mile for our clients.
