Historic Restoration

historic-restorationEvery restoration project begins with an evaluation by the Stewart Restoration Team – a group that boasts over 200 years of combined experience with restoration and manufacturing techniques. This team will determine the restoration processes to be used and will oversee their use through the conclusion of the project. Every restoration method we use is endorsed and accepted by the leading Preservation Societies in the country.

Our unique knowledge of historic metal casting and weld repair techniques enables us to accurately evaluate casting repair possibilities. In cases where repair is not possible (or desired), Stewart’s designers create reproductions accurate in every detail.

In addition to our restoration projects, we maintain an extensive archival library of historic ironwork. The National Building Museum (in Washington, D.C.) described the Stewart library on 19th and 20th century American and European metalwork as the “most comprehensive in the country.” This collection of original technical drawings, foundry pattern books, manufacturing catalogs, and architectural forms provide insight and inspiration crucial to preservation projects. Our archival library equips our designers, engineers, and craftsmen with knowledge that results in accurate recreation of historic pieces.

Design & Consultation

3d-capabilitiesYou have a vision for your project. It is individual and distinct, dependent on many factors including function, form, beauty and historic relevance. Whatever your vision, at Stewart Iron Works we are ready to help you bring it to life. When partnering with our designers, architects, and engineers you become part of a team energized by the challenges of unique metal masterpieces.

The expertise of our design team will help you breathe new life into the forms you need, creating a setting with the look and feel you desire. We have the ability to create a broad range of architectural elements either from scratch or based on existing forms. We weave together the new and the old with a beautiful artistic thread.

 

3D Capabilities

The use of 3D CAD Modeling software allows Stewart to see all necessary dimensions of your project. No project exists solely on paper or in 2 dimensions. Fully grasping your project relies on a complete understanding of the scope and dimensions. We can provide you with a 3D design of your final shape so that you can see the whole item before it is carefully forged by our team.

 

Installation

Stewart Iron Works not only creates custom architectural metal shapes and forms, but also specializes in their expert installation. Many projects are made to order and come with their own special circumstances. By allowing Stewart to install the items we fabricate w ensure that all the items are perfectly placed to retain their natural beauty and functionality.
