Pacific Coast Iron is a LEED compliant steel contractor that utilizes Lean scheduling principles and practices. Throughout the estimating, detailing, fabrication and installation process we take pride in not only managing our responsibilities, but improving the experience with minimum cost and maximum value; delivering on a customers needs.


With over 125 years of hands-on steel fabrication and steel erection experience we pride ourselves on providing comprehensive project bids that are competitively priced and accountable.  We pride ourselves on providing the right number (not necessarily the lowest) and will work with your teams to find alternate means to stay within your budget.  We excel in both the fixed price, design build, and multi-prime framework. 


Through a rigorous vetting process we have forged partnerships with multiple detailing firms here in CONUS and around the world.  Through 3D modeling utilizing Tekla, Advanced Steel, Strucad and other state of the art software we have the capacity to take on a wide range of complex jobs.  With the addition of Mr. Peter Sanchez in 2019, formerly the Owner if Eiffel Steel Detailing services, we now have in-house detailing capability and additional resources to ensure that common detailing errors are caught and corrected well before production.  We are extremely excited to combine this new capability with the automated beamline we added in 2018 and produce extremely high quality and timely fabricated steel for your projects. 


Our 77,500 sq. ft. plant includes six overhead cranes and computerized calibrated equipment that can handle projects of all sizes, and our certified welders are qualified journeymen, delivering the highest in quality. In 2018 we added an Ocean Machinery Liberator – Automated Coping Machine and an Ocean Machinery Avenger 2 – Drill Line.  Together these new machinery adds capacity, accuracy and efficiency to our steel fabrication production capabilities.


Over the years were have forged lasting relationships with multiple steel erectors throughout Southern California.  We work closely with our erectors to carefully plan out each job to include detailing, sequencing, loading, erection aids and coordination with other project subcontractors.  Our project managers work closely with your onsite teams to ensure steel erection performed safely, is well coordinated, issues are anticipated well in advance and when they arise they are quickly and professionally resolved.
