Icon Fabrication’s enviable reputation in the provision of architectural metalwork, fencing and steelwork solutions has been built in just a few short years. We are proud of the expertise in our team, our commitment to training and development, and our reputation for quality of product and delivery we have ensured to all of our clients.
Ben Storrie and Mike Green set up the company in 2012 with four staff. Ben and Mike brought over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry. They believed there was an opportunity for a specialist fabricator offering top quality at competitive cost. Strong and steady growth has followed as clients return time and again, and recommend Icon to others.
Now we are the largest business of its kind in the Lothians, with a staff of around 60 and growing. We moved to new headquarters in Edinburgh in 2014. Now with additional premises in Glasgow, Icon is strategically placed to undertake work throughout Scotland and the north of England. We are proud our growing reputation and scope of services means Icon are often the contractor of choice for contractors and developers looking to utilise the most advanced techniques in steel and metal.
Through the course of our work in supplying metalwork and architectural steel solutions to the construction sector, we realised that there was a need for a highly competitive steel and metal fencing provider in the market. In August 2015, we set up Icon Fencing, which uses the expertise and manufacturing capability of Icon Fabrications to offer a wide variety of fencing solutions. Icon Fencing has been a success from the start, designing, supplying and installing fences in a wide variety of styles – often to bespoke standards – across Scotland.
Icon Fencing was proud to be appointed by Royal Zoological Society of Scotland in early 2016 as specialist contractor to construct Edinburgh Zoo’s spectacular new enclosure for Sumatran Tigers, which features a ground level glass viewing tunnel for visitors, as well as covered pathways and a high level viewing area. We have utilised our in-house expertise in glasswork, metal work and fencing on this high profile project.
In 2015 Icon Fabrications won the Highest Growth Business and Innovation award from the Mid Lothian and East Lothian Chambers of Commerce, reflecting not just our growth in terms of size and workforce, but the increased scope of our business and cutting edge work we have been carrying out.
We believe a key factor in Icon Fabrication’s success is our policy of recruiting experienced staff and developing our workforce. Each member of the senior team is able to carry out a multitude of specialist tasks across our firm’s work, from site surveying and design to manufacture and installation. This helps give Icon Fabrications the flexibility and confidence to take on and deliver a wide variety of work.
Our company directors and all members of staff at Icon appreciate the importance of Health and Safety, we have ISO 9001:2008 certification and are approved annually by Achilles for our Health & Safety policies, and our procedures are constantly reviewed and improved.
Icon employ an independent health and safety consultant to ensure that we comply with current and forthcoming legislative requirements both on our sites and in our workshop and we are very proud of our health and safety record and openly welcome visits from prospective or existing clients to view our premises and working procedures at any time.
