Castings play an important role in architecture and design, both as load bearing structural components and decorative castings to enhance the aesthetics of buildings and structures.

Goodwin has a proven track record for taking architectural castings from concept, through design and prototyping to finished product. Goodwin personnel are engineers themselves and as such are able to work with the customers design and consulting engineers to provide a workable solution from first principles.

Goodwin Steel Castings are proud to be one of the first foundries to attain CE marking capability.

The British Board of Agrément has awarded our foundry a ‘Factory Production Control Certificate’ which allows CE marking to BSEN 10340 for all our construction sector castings.

Compliance with the requirements of CE marking became mandatory for construction products under European Law on 1st July 2013.

The building's curved roof springs from the upper-level walkway, parallel with the main railway lines, and sweeps up to a high glazed wall. Each curved roof arch is supported by a 16,000kg base casting manufactured by Goodwin. All castings were dressed and conditioned to provide a uniform and pleasing surface. The castings served both a structural and architectural function.

Syncrolift System at The Faslane Navy Base

The Faslane base, near Glasgow, is used to maintain the UK's nuclear submarine fleet and is the only facility in the world where a nuclear armed and nuclear-powered submarine can be lifted out of the water. We supplied over 600 critical castings for the 165m long Syncrolift system, housed in the covered dock building with a lifting capacity in excess of 25,000 tons.

Goodwin were selected to provide the castings for the Paddington Station Masterplan extension. Due to the scale of the new roof, the use of stainless steel castings to articulate key structural junctions was an economic and visually attractive possibility, and a series of stainless steel nodes for the roof were developed and produced by Goodwin.
