Architectural Metalwork, Castings & Embellishments

Architectural Metalwork, Castings, Columns & Embellishments (and complete structures!) have been manufactured by Leander Architectural to suit a wide range of bespoke applications for decades. We offer both turn-key and self-build projects, utilising our in-house foundry and well equipped expansive workshops. Over the decades, we’ve accumulated a vast number of casting patterns for architectural components. Many of these can easily be incorporated or adapted into canopies, verandahs and other structures. Adding a few cast components can turn a very ordinary metal structure into something much more attractive.

All our Architectural Castings Columns & Embellishments are normally made in a high-silicone cast aluminium alloy. The silicone content increases the tensile strength and corrosion resistance of the metal. Although our castings are usually Aluminium, we do occasionally produce them in other materials including Bronze and Iron by request. Often for larger heritage projects we will produce bespoke iron brackets and columns – including for Network Rail Listed station refurbishments.

Please feel free to contact us about other styles of architectural metalwork if they are not shown in the following pages or in our catalogues. We have a vast pattern archive & can create new designs in certain circumstances. We can provide our castings and structures from raw metal through to fully painted – please contact us!


Products are manufactured in-house in the company’s expansive workshop, using high-quality materials including aluminium, stainless steel, bronze and iron.

The completion of many bandstand and canopy projects over the years has enabled Leander to develop a wide range of designs and casting patterns based on originals by famous Victorian / Edwardian foundries such as Walter McFarlane and Elmbank Foundry Co. With constantly replenished casting stock and efficient designs Leander can offer the fastest possible turnaround, from specification to delivery.
