Have a need for a large steel structure as part of a public works project?
We've partnered with a large steel structure manufacturer so we can meet all your Park and Rec needs.
We have people in place who can bring your project all the way.
Send us your "back of the envelope" sketch.
We will fill in the blanks.
Custom Shade Shelter
We call this the Arms Pavilion.
Custom Steeltown Shade Shelter
A glorious eight sided custom, steel, shade pavilion
Tapered Barrel Pavilion
This pavilion looks like half a barrel
Baldwin Pergoals did not build these structures, this section explains that we have the capability to design custom pavilion-like structures and to oversee the manufacture and installation of complex steel projects.
The rigidity of the pergola is derived from the stability of the connection to the Earth. The importance of big, solid footings which are placed accurately, cannot be overstated.
The rigidity of the pergola is derived from the stability of the connection to the Earth.
Concrete footings: 14" Diameter minimum for 10" square and 12" round columns.
Our site plan will show a diagonal dimension. This helps you square the footings to each other.
Concrete pad: Should be poured 12" deep in the area where the columns will stand.
Stone wall: It's best to drill 18" deep into the well built, mortared stone wall.
Concrete pier: Wet set our 5/8" stainless steel rods into the footing then build the pier
Tolerance factor: Footings should be placed accurately with an overall error margin of less than an inch.
Conduit in footings: Bring a sweep into your footing with the center about three inches off center.
Deck mounted: Ask us for PDF drawings of best practice connection methods.
It is the customers responsibility to make sure that an adequate mounting surface is in place. The customer is responsible for
supplying relevant dimensions such as the depth and width of column centers and overall height requirements for the structure.
All dimensions, including overhangs and member spacing are completely customizable during the design process. At the time of installation, nothing can be changed.
Standing a column up onto a concrete footing. We previously drilled the footing and epoxied a 5/8" stainless steel threaded rod into the footing.
Gather Your Measurements
Measurements are taken from column centers, our typical overhang is 24 inches
A freestanding pergola that measures 120" x 120" on center will have an overall size of 168" x 168"
An attached pergola that measures 120" x 120" on center will have an overall size of 144" deep x 168" wide
All dimensions, including overhangs and member spacing are completely customizable

We are on island and the pergola looks GREAT!!! It is better than we had hoped for and as you know by now, I think it through to the end, so we had high expectations. You have exceeded them all!
Thanks for all of the effort and all of the hard work getting this installed in a day. It really adds another dimension to the house, balances it in the yard, and best of all creates a new exterior room to enjoy. The wisteria have been ordered and will be planted in the next couple weeks. Thanks again.
Steve and Rhea
To Max and all the folks at Baldwin Pergolas who contributed to the creation and installation of our beautiful pergola - Thank you, thank you, thank you! Not only did you get the job done right on schedule and in time for our wedding, but the craftsmanship is impeccable. You are all very talented and deserving of great success.
Pat and Joe Pifko
Max, I will send you some photos as soon as we install the paddle fan. Running wire was fine. It looks great!
Thanks again. We love the pergola. It's beautiful. We hope everything goes well for you.
Uploaded the final pictures. Came out great! My neighbor is now pricing out a patio so he can have a Baldwin Pergola on his property. Thanks again guys - very impressed with the quality and service of your company. The fit and finish is impeccable and we couldn't be happier. I'll be sure to recommend Baldwin in the future!

Max and crew, Rhea and I both want to thank you for a great job and lots of hard work. We are extremely pleased with the pergola, the quality of work and your own personal effort. Architecturally it brings a new dimension to the scale of the existing farmhouse by balancing the composition. Functionally it will bring years and years of enjoyment.
Steve and Rhea
We love it! Your assistance and patience during our installation was greatly appreciated.
Max & Chris, Thank you both for your help on this project. My 13 year old son & I installed the pergola the day you delivered it. It took us about 6 Hours and it looks great. You can see the completed project here. Fell free to use whatever pictures you like.

I was worried that the joints would swell and be difficult to assemble in the rain. I had very little difficulty. They went together very well. The workmanship on the parts was excellent.
The pergola is spectacular, and my clients are absolutely thrilled. Just as planned, it totally transforms the patio area into an inviting, dramatic, and complete outdoor space. They are very impressed with the precision of the construction as well.
Thank you again!
