Steel contractor celebrates 30 years by achieving Execution Class 3
Gorge Fabrications will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in November having gained Execution Class 3, which allows the company to undertake a greater variety of steel fabrication and erection.
“We can now build on our wide experience in multi-sector buildings, and particularly that of multi-storey installations, with Execution Class 3 now enabling us to install structures over 15 storeys in height,” said Gorge Fabrications Director Steve Mintchev.
“We are also now a fabrication partner that can assist in ensuring steelwork is fabricated to the more rigorous quality and testing requirements for structures that require Execution Class 3 certification.”
The company says gaining the certification is part of a coordinated programme of operational improvement that the business has been undertaking. Consequently, this new certification and associated capability enables Gorge’s experienced engineering team to meet and service a more diverse range of demands that may arise.
“It is a sign of the business’ maturity that we have reached this major milestone. The business has progressed from minor steelwork fabrications, such as fences and gates to now being able to fabricate and install projects typically up to 500t,” added Mr Mintchev.
