South Durham Structures Offices

South Durham Structures is a Private Limited Steel Fabrication and Erection Company founded in 1981, offering a professional but personal service to our clients.  Following gradual expansion, we operate from Bishop Auckland’s South Church Enterprise Park, and whilst our fabrication facility is based in the North East, we regularly fabricate and erect steelwork on projects throughout the UK.


The fabrication facility encompasses a twin span portal frame building of 2500m2, with an adjacent office block and outside storage area. The total production area is serviced by overhead craneage.  Our Fabrication and Erection staff are traditionally trained but forward thinking, and ensure the highest level of quality and efficiency which is shown throughout our work.


Tenders are priced using Fabtrol, to ensure the most accurate prices are given, and once contracts are won, fabrication projects are detailed using either the Strucad or Tekla drawing systems with information fed directly into our CNC Saw/Drill and Fittings Lines. Dependant on the size of the project, this then enables us to offer lead in periods of approximately 6 weeks from the receipt of Construction issue drawings to the delivery of steelwork to site. Coupled with our own in-house shotblast and painting facility and our directly employed site erection crews, this then ensures we have complete control of all aspects of fabrication and erection from inception to completion.


Preferred size of projects range between 50t – 1000t and we are currently able to fabricate, paint and erect between 60-100t a week, dependent upon the complexity of the fabrication.
