Have a need for a large steel structure as part of a public works project?
We've partnered with a large steel structure manufacturer so we can meet all your Park and Rec needs.
We have people in place who can bring your project all the way.
Send us your "back of the envelope" sketch.
We will fill in the blanks.
Custom Shade Shelter
We call this the Arms Pavilion.
Custom Steeltown Shade Shelter
A glorious eight sided custom, steel, shade pavilion
Tapered Barrel Pavilion
This pavilion looks like half a barrel
Baldwin Pergoals did not build these structures, this section explains that we have the capability to design custom pavilion-like structures and to oversee the manufacture and installation of complex steel projects.
The rigidity of the pergola is derived from the stability of the connection to the Earth. The importance of big, solid footings which are placed accurately, cannot be overstated.
The rigidity of the pergola is derived from the stability of the connection to the Earth.
Concrete footings: 14" Diameter minimum for 10" square and 12" round columns.
Our site plan will show a diagonal dimension. This helps you square the footings to each other.
Concrete pad: Should be poured 12" deep in the area where the columns will stand.
Stone wall: It's best to drill 18" deep into the well built, mortared stone wall.
Concrete pier: Wet set our 5/8" stainless steel rods into the footing then build the pier
Tolerance factor: Footings should be placed accurately with an overall error margin of less than an inch.
Conduit in footings: Bring a sweep into your footing with the center about three inches off center.
Deck mounted: Ask us for PDF drawings of best practice connection methods.
It is the customers responsibility to make sure that an adequate mounting surface is in place. The customer is responsible for
supplying relevant dimensions such as the depth and width of column centers and overall height requirements for the structure.
All dimensions, including overhangs and member spacing are completely customizable during the design process. At the time of installation, nothing can be changed.

Gather Your Measurements
Measurements are taken from column centers, our typical overhang is 24 inches
A freestanding pergola that measures 120" x 120" on center will have an overall size of 168" x 168"
An attached pergola that measures 120" x 120" on center will have an overall size of 144" deep x 168" wide
All dimensions, including overhangs and member spacing are completely customizable

As a cabinetmaker and woodworker, I send you kudos on your system, the communication that we've had, the quality of the product. It's a pretty simple kit that arrived and it installs just about as easily as your website suggests. On a personal level, it's really cool to make connections with other people that have the same sense of pride in their work. This stuff is as much about service as it is product.
Thanks so much for working with us yesterday! My father dropped the chairs off to our home in Ri yesterday, and this morning we sat out there drinking our coffee discussing future home projects. Just wanted to share a photo of the chairs on our porch. While our porch is not quite completed, lattice, some garden work etc, the products we bought make our home that much nicer of a place to be and relax! Thanks again and have a happy Memorial Day!!

Max and Chris, Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the pent roof you designed and fabricated. The fit came out perfectly, installation was easy, it\'s performing as designed (including headroom for my daughter\'s 6\'7\" fiance), and looks great, of course. Many thanks!
WE LOVE OUR NEW FURNITURE! It is so beautiful, comfortable and
functional and it smells good too! We feel like we have a whole new
outdoor room on our deck. Thank you for giving us a break on the
delivery charges - the fellow who brought the furniture was a very nice
young man. We're very happy with our choice.

And here's how it looked at noon today. Mark said it went together very well, and they enjoyed working with your work.
It surely has already made a wonderful difference in the quality of light coming into that entry room, as well as the overall looks on the house. We are very pleased with your good work and are planning a larger square pergola on another house at the ranch about this time next year.

As I mentioned to you, we never thought we would be discussing another pergola within 7 years but it is a testament to the quality of your product and service that we did not even consider contacting anyone else.
Should we ever build another house, it will be pergola #3 !
I am very happy with your product and now know where to go when I need a pergola. It was a pleasure speaking with you and I wish you much success with your growing business.
The pavilion is looking excellent. We're really happy with our choice and your guys have worked very hard to get things just right.
As a customer, I would highly recommend your company to others.
Max - Thanks for the instructions on assembling the pergola - went together nicely and looks great in our small back yard! Regards, Charlie
