TDS4 | Architectural Metalwork

No design challenge has ever foxed us yet

We are the guys to go to if you are looking for an architectural metalwork company that can solve the most challenging projects. Whether it's a feature staircase or the most complex helical staircase there are not many design issues we haven’t solved or designed around. As the boundaries are being pushed by clients and architects we are well placed at the forefront of in house design knowledge that we know we can always find a cost effective solution.

With the recent demand for balconies here in the UK and overseas we have a specialist team that focus on balcony projects that ensures all aspects of the design are covered. Thermal breaks, off site construction methods and stand out material requests are something we are managing on a daily basis. We continue to service the market with design solutions for stainless steel balustrades, feature staircases and structural glass schemes.

Leicester Tigers Rugby Football Stadium

TDS were commissioned by Adey Steel to design, develop and detail a variety of architectural metalwork elements on the re-developed JCB Main Stand including stadium balustrading, staircases and access steelwork.


20 Fenchurch Street, London, ‘The Walkie Talkie’

TDS were proud to work on this iconic building that dominates the London Skyline. Initially engaged to design, develop and detail a series of hanging access platforms within the roof structure, we were also later engaged to work on the east and west stair handrails within the impressive Sky Garden which overlooks the city.


Building 7, Chiswick Park, London

Chiswick Park was TDS’ first fully integrated BIM construction project working in conjunction with Stanhope and Lend Lease. TDS designed, developed and modelled 3 external escape stairs and an internal staircase consisting of 108 flights in total. In addition we were also engaged to provide all of the room perimeter balustrades. One of the key benefits to this project was the ability to collaborate by exporting and then integrating our models into a master project model that highlighted any potential clashes or design discrepancies. All BIM work was compliant to LOD400 (American based CASE ran the BIM requirements for the project).


Dorchester Hotel - 45 Park Lane London

TDS were delighted to be commissioned to work on the world famous Dorchester Hotel, London, in 2010. Working alongside Littleman Contracts and London based Architects Paul Davies & Partners, TDS designed, developed and detailed all of the stainless steel external cladding as well as the new canopy cladding to the stunning entrance area.


Royal Observatory - Helical Feature Staircase

The 2 storey helical staircase with 10mm combined stringer / balustrade detail is an outstanding feature at the Royal Observatory in the Maritime Museum, Greenwich.
