Every metal fabrication project is unique. However, there are some general steps that most fabrication projects will go through. In this article, we are going to walk through some of the initial planning steps of a metal fabrication project.
Meeting with the Client
The first step in any metal fabrication project is to meet with the client. The goal of this initial meeting is to get an idea of the scope of the project. This will give the fabricator an idea of what materials and tools will be needed, and also a general idea of the cost of the project. The more specific the client can be during this planning meeting, the better, as it will avoid any costly surprises down the line.
Researching the Project Needs
Following the initial planning meeting, the metal fabricator will conduct in-depth research to determine what, specifically, it will take to complete the project. This phase will include meeting with other team members to discuss specific processes, materials, and timing. At the end of this phase, the fabricator will furnish a quote to the client for the project.
Starting the Project
If the client approves the quote, then it’s time to get started on the project in earnest!
