CE Structural Steelwork to Execution Class 3

Brook Welding are accredited to BS EN 1090 to the higher standard of Execution Class 3 and are able to fabricate large and heavy structural steel work, from buildings to bridges and everything in-between. Over the years we have worked on a number of large structural steel work projects, these include well know closing stadium roofs and iconic London buildings as well as much less glamorous projects, but as equally important such as train bridges. More recently we have worked on wind turbine projects and towers for offshore equipment.

Our West Midlands manufacturing site can produce structural steel fabrications to the highest of standards. We also have the facilities on site to offer thermal stress relief, machining, shot blasting and painting, allowing us to keep a tight grip on the quality of the finished product. Our large and lofty shop floor combined with our heavy lifting capacity of 60 tonnes affords us the flexibility to build CE marked fabrications for a wide range of industries, not just construction. While we don’t have design facilities in house we have a close tie in to competent design companies that can design and carry out the necessary safety calculations for us. In the areas of manufacture we haven’t incorporated we have spent decades forming strong partnerships with a number of companies that specialise in industries outside our own expertise allowing us, for example, to offer fabrications that are galvanised or have abnormally heavy or large fabrication to be machined to a very high precision.

We pride ourselves on our technical know-how and highly experienced workforce, whose skill has been developed and passed down over the last six decades. In that time we have mastered working with a whole range of steels and steel alloys, from basic mild steel to nickel iron alloys. Both our fabricators and our welders are coded to B.S EN 287-1 & B.S. EN ISO 9606-1 and our expert welders are also coded to ASME IX. The company holds a number of Qualified Welding Procedures in accordance with B.S. EN 288, B.S. EN ISO 15614-1 and ASME IX to cover all manner of welds and material grades. While we regularly work with 3.1 and 3.2 certificated materials we can offer a full package of testing and traceability designed to suit your specification as well as being ISO 9001 & BS EN 1090 accredited by a UKAS accredited auditors. In addition to full traceability of materials, Brook can also offer a suite of independent Testing and certification from Charpy Impact Tests & hardness surveys to Z axis testing for lamellar tearing. Weld Joints on CE Marked fabrications are assessed for quality in accordance the relevant banding of ISO 5817:2014 and the methods laid out in ISO 17637:2003 as a minimum. We can offer a much more stringent NDT package of DPT, MPI, Ultrasonic testing as well as radiograph if required, these test carried out by independent certified companies that offer full test reports. See our offshore section for more details of the testing services we can provide.

All fabrication no matter how small can come with a comprehensive documentation pack.

Industrial Walkways

Bespoke structural steel work

We work on structural steel fabrications of all shapes, sizes and weights, from basic testing to a meticulous testing program. The fabrication facility has the lifting capacity to fabricate up to 60 tonnes, and we can offer a machined fabrication to 20 tonnes before needing to subcontract to one of our trusted suppliers. We regularly deliver large fabrications all over the UK and make daily collections and drops around the West Midlands. For a more detailed look at our Machining, Thermal Stress Reliving, Shot Blasting or Paint facility’s please follow the links.

We can handle all formats of electronic drawings/information and aim to turn the majority of quotations around in 48 hours. Feel free to Contact one of our experts to discuss capacity or any enquiries you may have now or in the future.

What is CE marking?

CE marking is stamp or marking applied to products to demonstrate its compliance with the appropriate manufacturing standard for a product under EEC Directive 93/68/EEC, replacing the “CE mark” in 1993.

CE Marking of fabricated structural steelwork became mandatory on 1 July 2014. Therefore all structural steelwork must be compliant to BS EN 1090-1 and its relevant execution class (EXC).
