Katapult team behind the scenes happily working with each other

we are

We are the workers, the makers, and the artists. We are the ones who get things done, no matter what. We thrive in bringing your vision to life.


Downtown FabWorks was founded in the fall of 2019 by Daniel Krall, with a mission to bring together the most talented tradespeople in the Gulf South under one roof. His vision was to use his 20+ years of experience in the exhibit, broadcast television, construction, and events industries to create a company that could provide turnkey solutions for a variety of clients. He knew that this could only be achieved by bringing together a team of problem-solvers with diverse skills and interests and a knack for thinking outside the box.

doing good work

  • With over a century of combined experience in multiple environments, we are the solution to fabricating your vision.
  • That vision is a reflection of you and your company. We see it as our primary goal to ensure that that vision comes to light.
  • We take a collaborative approach with every client and every project. This means you have a partner in Downtown FabWorks, not just a vendor. Our success is defined by the success of your project.


Our team includes technical design and project management that you can trust, to ensure that the finishes in your environment happen on time, on budget, and just as you envision.


We live for the deadlines and thrive in the chaos of large events. From conventions to festivals, arenas to domes, our team has what it takes to fabricate your scenery, big and small.


Brand activations, themed environments, and broadcast television: this is where we excel. Be creative, have fun, and make your vision unique to you. We'll make it happen.
