Refine: Balancing Aspiration with Affordability

Throughout every phase of our collaborate fabrication process, Magma Build Studios is considering a variety of factors such as functionality, aesthetics, structural integrity, and feasibility. It’s when we get to the refine stage that we really narrow down all of the factors that contribute to the final outcome. Our aim is to find the perfect balance between form and function, ensuring that the final solution not only meets your design aspirations but also performs flawlessly in its intended application.

  • Material Selection and Sourcing: With our emphasis on quality and durability, we carefully select the metals and other materials for your project. Our extensive network of trusted suppliers ensures that we source materials that meet the highest industry standards. We consider factors such as strength, corrosion resistance, and aesthetic appeal, ensuring that the chosen metals align perfectly with your architectural objectives.
  • Precision Fabrication Techniques and Finishing Options: Our team is able to leverage our vast knowledge of different fabrication techniques and materials to explore different solutions for creating the same final outcome. We understand that the finishing touches make all the difference in architectural fabrications. Through our deep knowledge and expertise in various finishing options, we’re able to define which finishing options will best enhance the aesthetic appeal and extend the longevity of your structures. From polishing and brushing to powder coating and protective coatings, we plan for the treatment needed for each element of your final design. This ensures the final deliverable is able to withstand the elements and maintain its pristine appearance over time.
  • Value Engineering: Our team analyzes the cost-benefit of different materials, fabrication methods, finishing options, and other project details, such as transportation and installation, to narrow down the best possible method for bringing your concept to life. When possible, our team will suggest alternatives for creating near identical visual results that could provide a cost or time advantage over more traditional methods.
