After the first contact has been initiated we would like to invite you to visit us in our workshop. The way how and where we work is relevant to understand the quality we try to deliver to our customers. Understanding who we are will build your trust in our competence.
Allready on our first meeting we can give you a budget frame for your project.
The nature of the project is connected to architecture, interior or a specific location, then we are happy to also meet you on-site. On-site we can evaluate how your ideas can meet the circumstances and we can discuss the possibilities.
After the first meeting we translate your ideas into a design proposal. On an additional meeting we present the proposal and answer all your questions. If you agree in the design proposal, we continue to make a quote for you.
After all parties agree in the design proposal we will generate a quote that covers all costs for your project.
Costs that depend on a third company such as Galvanizing will be a cost estimation.
If the costs extend the estimation we will inform you instantly.
If during the execution, additional wishes are requested, we will tell you right away the additional costs for you.
We start with the production once we have received the contract confirmation. Production time is estimated in the quote but can extend if more requests have been made. If unexpected delays appear we will inform you immediatelly.
During the total production time the workshop is accessible for the customer to experience the production and assembly.
In time we will inform you when we deliver the work or plan the installation. Outdoor installation depend on weather conditions and therefore can create delays.
The project is not ended until the customer is fully satisfied with the result. We end our work with a photo documentation of the working process and result for you to experience all steps that were involved to create your work.
From the idea to the result

Why is craft sustainable
Efficient and a sensible use of resources such as materials, fuel and time requires experience, material knowledge and strong skills in craftsmanship.
The nature of forging is to shape the material, with that just a minimum of material gets lost in the process. All Ferro materials we use are up to 99% recycled. In addition we avoid scrap and try to find for every cut off or left over an additional use.
We design and produce our work beyond our own life time. That will extend the lifecycle of our work into the next generation, with the hope that the future generation evaluate the work as worth preserving and maybe seen as an antique. All parts of our work that will have wear, are designed that it can be repaired.
