From our studio in south-east London we are able to develop projects from design conception through to fabrication and installation

Our flexible workspace is equipped with specialist machinery – including a CNC router, edgebander, lathe and mill – to facilitate production at a range of scales. We offer comprehensive fabrication services in a variety of materials, from wood and metal to Corian and Jesmonite. All works are completed in-house, providing us with a high degree of control over every aspect of the work.

We offer design services tailored to suit the needs of each client. We can work from simple sketches, or develop initial concepts into CAD models and full architectural plans.

As well as bespoke fabrication and custom design we offer project management and consultation services. Our approach integrates design with making, allowing us to develop elegant and efficient fabrication and installation methods for even the most complex or unusual projects.

 

The Weber Industries team is composed of architects, designers, artists and professional makers

Our collaborative approach draws together this broad range of specialist skills and wealth of experience with the vision of our clients, enabling us to deliver projects to an exceptionally high standard.

We are currently seeking experienced fabricators specialising in wood to join our core team.  Find out more about the role here.

We are always keen to add more freelance fabricators and designers to our network.  Send your CV (including contact details for two professional references) to anna@weberindustries.com or contact us for more information.

“I found Weber Industries to be very professional, creative and a pleasure to work with. Weber Industries designed and created stunning but also practical bespoke pieces for my new home, I would highly recommend them and their work.”

Private Client
Sloane Court

“It is a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Weber Industries on a number of varied and challenging projects over the years. Gavin and his team are all really lovely, helpful, passionate and professional, even when the pressure is on to meet a tight deadline. Of course they are also innovative, practical and highly skilled at fabricating all kinds of things using almost any material. They are inventive, knowledgeable and experienced at developing simple, beautiful and clever details or solutions to meet the demands of a project. I would recommend them to anyone who needs bespoke fabrication and values quality.”

Geoff Morrow
Structure Mode

“We have worked with Weber Industries since 2013 and have always been extremely satisfied with the service and products provided. Gavin and his team are in tune with design sensibilities, have a can-do attitude and creative problem solving skills and quite importantly a clear and honest management of expectations which means that they never over-promise and under-deliver. Red Deer and Weber Industries have mutually helped our business grow and we look forward to many more years ahead.”

Lionel Real de Azúa ARB
Red Deer

“Working with Weber Industries is top quality 100% of the time. No matter how elaborate the vision, they have the know-how, enthusiasm and creativity to make bespoke projects become beautiful realities. I always have total confidence that my art will be a success when I work with them!”

Julia Vogl
Chiltern Street

“REEF is perhaps my most ambitious and complex project to date. The work required building an entirely concrete wheelhouse and fittings onto the hulk of an existing concrete ship. The project required collaboration with a creative, passionate fabricator who could brainstorm imaginative solutions and was able to deliver these within in a tightly controlled budget and exacting (but unpredictable) schedule. The team from Weber Industries were able to fulfil this role impeccably and to remain positive, friendly and helpful in extremely difficult circumstances. Gavin's background as a sculptor combined with his grasp of construction and engineering made him the perfect partner for this project.”

Simon Faithful
REEF

“Gavin and the team have always delivered an exceptionally high quality of work. They come up with unique solutions and approaches to various projects from the most challenging and ambitious large sculptures to the very small and simple everyday designs. They are all very approachable, very knowledgeable in different techniques and materials, and always keen to experiment.”

Nika Neelova
1 New Ludgate

“The guys at Weber Industries were invaluable to us while working on our Perspectives project. From design stage through to production they were a huge help to us to determine the best way to build the structure to hold all of our wooden shingles. We were extremely pleased with the finished framework as well as their help with arranging transport to site. Their impressive understanding of the fabrication process guaranteed our confidence that they were the right guys for the job. We are very much looking forward to our next project with them!”

Giles Miller Studio
Perspectives

“For our project at Neo Bankside, Weber Industries went above and beyond! Their skills and experience were apparent in their proactive and efficient management of the project, culminating in a high quality finished product that fulfilled our brief and exceeded our expectations. They were fantastic to work with and we look forward to our next project together.”

Richard Holland
Holland Harvey Architects

“It is a great working with Weber Industries and the pavilion project was only possible with their great support and skilled input. They have been helpful in design decisions and have been proactive, professional and highly skilled and coordinated, both on and off site. I am looking forward to working with Weber Industries again in the near future.”
