 For Exact Reproductions: The Design Process


 CAD Drawings


  a) If you are a qualified architect or designer

      - supply us with CAD drawings - plan views / cross sections / elevations

      - For specific details in the Column

        Supply us with a separate detail drawing that shows depths, widths and heights of the detail. 

        Manufacturing cannot interpret an artistic rendering as a specific detail showing 3 dimensions.

        Indicate how deep, wide and high each detail is to be.

        If no drawing is available,  Manufacturing will assess the detail to the best of their ability as they are hand carved.

        simple sketches, photos, or renderings are not architectural drawings


  b) If you cannot supply CAD drawings  click here for Custom Designs

      - Plan views / cross sections / elevations / specific details in 3D  must be made in order to create a quotation

      - There is a charge for design service, inquire for fee schedules

      Imperial's Custom Department offers the design services of Martin Richards Design and Contracting Inc.

 Step 3) How Many Balusters do you Need

 Number of Columns

 & Application


 1) Are all the balusters Whole

 Step 4) Material and Application
