Barnsley, (PressExposure) June 23, 2009 -- Sheffield (GDA) Mayflower Engineering's established reputation and expertise in mechanical design, fabrication machining and assembly of specialist equipment is complemented by their proven historical capability to manufacture and install complex sculptures, many of which are now sited in locations across the UK.
'Made in Sheffield' is the proud banner under which Mayflower Engineering has established a history of continued excellence in specialist engineering design and manufacture. By offering a full turnkey engineering service the company can also specialise in the design, manufacture, shop assembly and site installation of large, small and complex sculptures.
As part of the extensive preparation required for the manufacture of large sculptures the design stage embraces 3D solid modelling, providing internal and external all round viewing of the sculpture along with detailed animation if the piece is a moving sculpture.
An image of the finished sculpture design will also be superimposed onto digital photographs of the site location to provide an image of final site installation and give the customer and artist the peace of mind that the project is in good hands and on track.
Glyn Hobson, Operations Director for Mayflower Engineering, said: "We are able to meet the high expectations of our clients by providing both static and dynamic sculpture designs to the highest possible standard.
"We have the capability to produce complex structures, manufacture them from a wide range of materials including stainless steels, carbon steels, non ferrous metals and coatings as well as non-metallics. and erect the finished sculpture anywhere in the world.
"Where a sculpture is required to move we can also bring it to life by designing into the sculpture any form of mechanical and electrical movement together with any specialist lighting required."
Mayflower Engineering's sculptures include the stunning 'Mirror Ball' in Blackpool and the popular 'Leaves' at the entrance to Doncaster Business Park. More information on the extensive portfolio of manufactured sculptures is available to view on the Mayflower Engineering website.
