Designing, manufacturing and installing structural steelwork...
you can rely upon.
For a range of project types, Mercia can provide structural steelwork to assist in the construction of your private and commercial buildings.
Steel is fast becoming a leading modern method of construction; with excellent strength to weight ratio, it has proven itself to be a durable and versatile material, especially for large and complex builds.
Mercia provides structural steelwork for large and small projects, up to 15 stories in height. With over four decades of experience under our belt, we are well equipped to provide the complete design, manufacture, and installation of structural steelwork, all the while adhering to the latest health and safety guidelines and industry regulations whilst on site.
We do this throughout the West Midlands and the UK, providing a fast and efficient service complete with installation.
Mercia works with our clients throughout the whole process of designing, fabricating, and erecting your steel structure.
We take on projects at all stages of the design phase; our qualified engineers can work with your complete architectural drawings or collaborate with you to create drawings based upon your concepts. This service is supported by site surveys.
Our experienced in-house team of draughtsmen utilise AutoCAD, Tekla and Solidworks to create drawings from which we can manufacture.
Mercia’s extensive manufacturing capabilities mean all manufacturing processes are undertaken in-house for a time-and cost-considerate process.
Utilising our team of in-house fitters, Mercia provides a fully-certified delivery and installation service for structural steelwork. Our installation team is certified with PASMA, CSCS, IPAF and SMSTS, meaning we can work safely and considerately on site.
Why use steel for structural work?
Although it is considered a relatively new method of construction, structural steel is becoming increasingly popular for framing buildings.
Aside from its strength to weight ratio making it easier to erect without compromising on its ability to hold the structure, steel also does not require curing time. Unlike concrete, construction can commence as soon as the materials arrive on site.
Steel is moreover cost efficient compared to traditional construction materials whilst retaining quality over time, reducing construction costs. It is also non-combustible and corrosion-resistant when sufficiently coated, making it a safe material to use in the construction of buildings.
