The word ’wrought’ is an archaic past tense form of the verb ‘to work’. As language changed, the word wrought was substituted for the word work. Wrought iron simply means ‘worked iron’.... and it’s beautiful!

Why Specified and Detailed Drawings are Essential for Quoting

 30th Jan 2018   John Bransby We are frequently asked by builders, home owners and even architects to provide a quote on the basis of drawings that are preliminary or concept quality only. Quite often these are Development Application (DA) drawings that are provided to Councils in the DA process. They are next to useless when sourcing quotes because they don’t provide any details of what is required. They may have notes that describe a set of gates as ‘metal gates’ or something equally meaningless.  It’s a bit like ringing around car dealers and asking for a quote on a 4 door sedan. Without details, it’s impossible to get a meaningful quote. It’s the same with images taken from the internet. Apart from the fact that it could be violating copyright by copying the design, there is no detail on which to base a quote.  We never quote on drawings without details and specifications and instead direct clients to our design and quoting process. Our thorough design process can save clients a fortune by avoiding work of low quality that either corrodes in a few years or doesn’t function as intended. While designing costs a relatively small amount at the outset, it can save a lot of money by making sure the metalwork is fit for the purpose and fit for the environment. It also virtually ensures that the new metalwork will add value to the property. Badly designed and specified metalwork detracts from a property and therefore devalues it. The devaluing effect is the most expensive part of a job if it happens. Our design and quoting process is second to none and in fact architects often engage us to do detailing and specifying for the clients because it is such a specialised field.
