Our Indianapolis Metal Fabrication Clientele
We work with just about anyone around Indianapolis from architects and engineers to designers and contractors. With their help we gather all the information on the metal fabrication project we can, including a budget and build a product specifically for the customer or specific job. If you are unsure of the direction you need to head in with the project, we use our extensive background in metal fabrication to provide consultation services that will help guide you the way as to what is the optimal solution.
How much time does it take to develop a piece?
When it comes to the development of a metal fabrication project through Eye4Group, the development process varies. It could take two minutes sketching on a napkin, or months of design, revisions, engineering, testing, etc.
Indianapolis Metal Fabrication Project Examples
Project: 3000LF of custom aluminum railing / student housing / upscale / Bloomington, IN / 2014
Customer: Trinitas Ventures
Need: Trinitas knowing our above and beyond ability to provide fabricated sign packages, posts, structures, etc. Requested a bid from us to provide all of the railing at the collegiate on Patterson. Our bid was competitive and we were awarded the job.
Scope: Bidding, Engineered Design, Field Measurement, Shop Drawing Production, Materials Acquisition, Fabrication, Powder Coating, Delivery, Installation Drawings, Hardware, Field Modifications.
Highlights: Not many companies can provide a full interior/exterior sign package, 2 custom architectural elements ( acrylic grass / hexagon structure ) along with completing 21 buildings with custom aluminum hand rail in a 4 month window. We did. Enough said?
Project: 3D Hexagon Structure / LED Acrylic Grass Field
Customer: Trinitas Ventures
Need: Someone please help us get these items built and installed, nobody wants to mess with it. Always fun when this is how the project starts. Once again I priced it mathematically, not using make believe numbers as my competitors must , and we won.
Scope: Hexagon – Fabricate and Install 300pc x 14” Wide Hexagons in lobby and game area of clubhouse. 4 Sets, all unique, each climbing the wall and suspending from the ceiling. Easy enough right.
Scope: Acrylic Grass Field – Fabricate and Install custom built light box to fit in opening allowing acrylic tubes to be lit from the bottom. Staggered pattern, multiple lengths and diameters of acrylic rods. Easy.
Highlights: We utilized summer help for these projects. The Vickery boys, aspiring engineers, worked many days on the hexagons creating the finish and pattern we wanted. When it came time to install the boys had gone back to school and we had a huge a huge pile of hexagons. We spent 2 days on site working through the night to get them in.
We spent a fair amount of time designing the acrylic grass to make the install a breeze. Modular, pre-wired, labeled, measured just right, etc.
All in all both projects were installed and look awesome. Quite the dramatic effect. Just another example of Eye 4 Group providing a solution and getting the job done. Simple.
Project: 3’ x 18’ Blade Sign @ Artistry Building Downtown Indianapolis
Customer: Leo Brown / Developer
Need: Design / Build / Install large blade sign to existing structure
One of a few projects in 2014 with Leo Brown / Milhaus. Won the bid, obviously.
Scope: Additional Sign for new tenant on existing yet new property. Nearly twice the size of previously installed Artistry Blades.
Highlights: We looked at the structure we were to mount this large sign to and provided necessary specs to re inforce were needed. The developer cut small openings for us to access structure through façade, we field measured these and built the cabinet around these parameters. This was the first cabinet we built in-house in 2014 and we think it looks awesome. Fun project to break in the new facility.
