99:40

99:40 are structural and civil engineers who, when not working on building structures, spend their free time advising artists and sculptors on artwork up and down the country. They advise on selecting appropriate materials for artwork and how to use them. They also carry out structural analysis and design of the artwork, where necessary, to make sure the work is structurally safe. 

99:40 want to make sure every artist, sculptor and craftsman has the engineering support they need to make their work a reality. They offer free advice, especially if the work is interesting, or the sculptor is just starting out in sculpture.

Using the lost wax process they are able to achieve a very high level of detail and complexity, perfect for even the most intricate of work. G.W. Lunt welcome artists and clients into their facility and believe that the best work results from an understanding of the full casting process, from mould to patina and all the steps in-between. Under new management since 2018, G.W. Lunt have now completed a full refurbishment of their 100-year-old building, investing over three quarters of a million pounds into the future of the company with assistance from the European Regional Development Fund and Birmingham City Council. This included a new roof - replacing one from 1910 - and a complete overhaul of health and safety in the business, bringing the 90-year-old foundry firmly into the 21st century.
