Some of our experience

The team at Creative Castings have wealth of experience. Here’s a glimpse at some of the projects they’ve been involved with.

The Royal Society, Piccadilly, London

After some extensive cast iron restoration work for The Royal Society came these large decorative heater panel grilles.

Removing 150 years’ worth of paint revealed some exquisite castings and fine work by the original craftsmen. Matching that meant carrying out several trial pourings, to get the metal temperature and flow right. It’s all about care and attention to detail.

The Seychelles Project

Recommended by an architect in South Africa to another working in The Seychelles. That’s how this commission to supply all the cast railings for The Seychelles’ Ministry of Tourism Office came about.

Panels and fittings were designed to accommodate existing column spacings. Patterns were made a trial was successfully carried out before the huge number of castings was supplied.

Everything fitted perfectly, to great acclaim. So much so the job led to supplying castings to the hotel next door to the Ministry.

Sir Hugh Middleton. Islington, London

The railings around Sir Hugh’s statue had been requisitioned as metal needed for World War 2. Decades later a generous grant was made available for their replacement. It took a lot of research, including a look through the local library archives, to make sure the original design was replicated.

The patterns and the castings done, and the railings installed, and not only was the statue returned to its original splendour, but the immediate surrounding area was somehow enhanced.

Palace Library balustrades, Saudi Arabia

An international interior design company needed the design and manufacture of solid bronze balustrades for a library in a Saudi Arabian palace.

There were three main considerations; the design needed to allow for varying lengths of balustrade, ease of transport was essential and the components had to be assembled on site.

The inspiration for the design was some original castings salvaged from a house in Shepherd’s Bush. The team remodelled the shape of the main panels, designed intermediate posts and came up with a discrete clamping system. Having ensured precise dimensions to meet the very high specification it needed considerable experience to create the patterns.

Next came the finish, polishing and applying a patina to create the high quality bronze appearance.

This was a challenging assignment to the highest of specifications – in an extremely prestigious location.

Customer reviews

Many thanks to the team at Creative Castings for helping us with the design, production and installation of our fantastic showpiece staircase. Our architect had sketched out a design for a modern, steel staircase with glass balustrading and open risers, intended to make the hallway feel bright and open. The problem was, when I tried to source this elsewhere the cost was astronomical. We thought we were going to have to settle for a normal staircase, until Barry and the team came to the rescue. Their service was great, from agreeing the design and estimating costs to measuring up, keeping us posted on production, through to installation. The staircase is great, it’s the standout feature of the house – the cut stringer creates a really striking look. Thanks again to Creative Castings, I would certainly recommend them to anyone else.

David, Bushey, Herts

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all the hard work that has gone into getting the stairs installed. It’s been quite some project!

The guys worked extremely hard and the results are stunning.

Richard Hossack

Our experience of buying our new staircase from Creative Castings was excellent from start to finish.  Barry and his team accommodated our building schedule, the design was perfect and the installation team were meticulous.  The resulting staircase is just as I imagined – a stunning centrepiece to our new home and a high quality finish for a great price.

Caroline & Richard, Old Winsor

We would like to say the stairs look great and really do compliment the look and feel we wanted for the family home. Transferring a 100 year old cottage into the 21st century whilst still keeping that 100 year old charm.

The engineers who did the install were professional and considerate, and I would highly recommend them again for anyone having their stairs installed. It’s great having a product which used different UK companies to build my staircase.

Joe and Family

The stairs very much lived up to my expectations, they look gorgeous. Very, very happy! As my partners Mum said, “a proper Grand Design staircase”.

Whilst this is my first dealing with you and your team I do believe I would be using you in the future, I also have a close relationship with my Architect and will be passing on your details to him if he has any clients looking for this kind of service. I would whole heartedly recommend you and your company to any prospective customer/client. It’s been a pleasure and I look forward to doing business in the future.

Guy, Bristol

The stairs are the first thing anyone sees when entering our house. Not one person has entered without saying WOW!

Stairs are complicated things and need patience and understanding. Creative Castings will take the time and care to ensure you get the stairs just right.

Madeleine, Portsmouth

Thank you so much to the team at UK Creative Castings who made our staircase for our recent renovation. They dealt with a very difficult project for us for our internal curved staircase, and we are delighted with the result. Their persistence and help with such a tricky project was invaluable and we are incredibly happy with our completed unique design. Thank you so much once again.

Georgia, Kent

I love the staircase, it’s chic, unique style and looks amazing! I have found the service to be professional, communication was easy and turnaround was per the agreement.

Alida, Guildford

Until we contacted UK Creative Castings, we thought our dream of an all glass cantilevered staircase had ended. Without so much as a site survey, their designers forwarded 3D renders for our approval, our minor design detail preferences were integrated into the most spectacular of all glass cantilevered staircases.

The skilled site fitters made installation look so easy, completing in two days including the 600 mile return journey. One fitter even retuned to replace one piece of handrail. Thanks to the whole team for a faultless project, very impressed.
