Setting industry standards

All product manufacture is carried out under ISO 9001: 2008 quality procedures, and in 2013 we became one of the first engineering companies to be awarded the coveted CE Mark.  MD of Hutchinson, Mr Dean Drinkwater, is a member of the British Safety Council’s Manufacturing Safety Interest Group, setting standards of good practice and leading by example.

With over 30 years of experience and enviable technical expertise, Hutchinson Engineering remains unrivalled in the design of steel solutions, fabricating cost-effective solutions for any requirements – from freestanding poles and masts to large-scale steel-framed buildings.

Design

Comprehensive 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is conducted by Hutchinson design staff to allow detailed visualisation of steel structures. This also indicates the distribution of any potential stresses and displacements and various loading conditions. FEA allows entire designs to be constructed, refined, and optimised before telecoms and wind towers are manufactured.
