We provide a full-service operation

Steel Fabrication

John Jones Steel is one of the largest and most advanced structural steel fabricating enterprises in New Zealand.

With 19,300m² combined facilities we offer great flexibility to complete projects. Our facilities include a modern and well-equipped workshop in Christchurch extending to more than 14,800m² and a further 4500m² workshop in Timaru.

Our workshops include state of the art fabrication machinery capable of running multiple shifts to meet demand. Our Christchurch facility consists of a large fabrication workshop, a purpose built heated paint shop, a draughting office and large administration office. Our paint shop specialises in single and multi-coat systems.

Shop Drawings

Our in-house drawing office handles all workshop drawings. And Tekla/BIMsight modelling has been used by the company for 14 years. The modelling is updated on a weekly basis and will be made available to the contractor.

Our “Trimble Total Station” is used for site survey and site dimensional QA. Trimble owns Tekla (the 3D modelling software that we detail the Steel Shop Drawings in and create the Tekla BIMsight models from) which allows onsite measuring with the utmost accuracy from the BIM model.


Our fleet is second to none. Piloting vehicles allow transportation of large loads 24 hours a day and to avoid site congestion we operate a “just in time” delivery method.

Our specialist hoisting and lifting gear allows the uplifting of materials and distribution around the site on an as required basis. Also, the proximity of our workshops to main arterial transport routes ensures prompt delivery.

Site Erection

Our experienced site staff along with our extensive range of cranes and access equipment can erect all of the fabricated steel while working seamlessly alongside our clients.
