We were approach by Mango Pie Events who required a no stress solution for the manufacturing of 65 bespoke centre pieces to be used as table dressing at a prestigious awards gala for there Blue-chip clients.
Mango Pie Events primary focus is on the quality of the experience that their clients and guest have, that’s the kind of focus that always creates a beautiful experience.
So we aimed to recreate that for them with our bespoke solution.
Mango Pie’s events team delivered the design concept and the key dimensions of the centre pieces they needed, it was up to Fresh Fabrications to handle all the other detail and deliver, right first time and on time.
After our initial consultation we chose the appropriate materials and fabrication processes that would perfect the clients vision. Having created the CAD model and drawing pack for the client and received sign-off, we moved rapidly to produce the items on schedule.
Swans look graceful above water, but underneath there is a lot going on to make it look so effortless, on our side, we were busy sourcing laser profiled parts and rolled rings, whilst drilling, sanding and cutting other items for the centre pieces in-house.
We then tacked and welded the pre-assembly’s before constructing a custom JIG which was used to accurately align them for tacking before final welding.
In my opinion the completed items looked beautiful before they were shipped but that was not the final stage.
The dressing on the metalwork was Dura-Gold Powder coat, as soon as our powder-coating vendor had them ready, I went to inspect in person for quality so they could be dispatched directly to the florists for decoration, all in good time for the event.
This job required a quick turn around, good management of the sourcing, accurate clean work processes and a good communication to maintain the high quality required. Yes I ended up working some late nights, but it was worth it to see the final result, a happy client.
At Fresh Fabrications we really enjoy the variety of work that comes in from our clients, working with Mango Pie on this project was very rewarding for both parties and we look forward to work with them again soon.
