The Design Authority is the place to go.
Go on, give yourself the competitive advantage!
The Design Authority has taken years of dedicated work to get started. From humble beginnings in 1998 when I first started design work for a leading gas equipment production company, through design and detailing days at the national defense force to more detailed design and manufacturing work in the retail industry, The Design Authority has over 15 years of experience in the design and steel manufacturing field. Although we are not limited to steel design and fabrication, it is our core strength, we do, however, offer these services across a whole range of substrates including wood, glass and plastic and as a value added service also offer branding and printing solutions.

Our unique ability of either interpreting a client brief or conceptualizing from scratch, through to the detailed engineering design and manufacturing of products enable us to fill a gap in the market that not many agencies of competitors offer. We offer full turnkey solutions as well as consulting, design and manufacturing solutions. Our 100% credited design fees on placement of an order place us ahead of our competitors who charge for these services without any return to you, the valued client.
