Fire Escape, Woodside, London

T&B Contractors commissioned our team to construct an external fire escape in Woodside, north London. This was a challenging project, because our work needed to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It’s not always easy to make fire escapes look pretty!

  • Client: T&B Contractors
  • Structural detail by: Draft Structural Detailing
  • Job Duration: spring 2018-spring 2019

T&B awarded LSJ Engineering the contract to design, supply and erect a feature external fire escape staircase at Woodside in Wood Green, London. The building is a council venue for weddings, and is set in a small park. Our stair, therefore, needed to be functional and visually pleasing! Working to the architect’s designs, we designed the stair to fulfil both criteria. The stringers and balustrades were powder coated off-site, while the Durbar treads were left in a galvanized finish for contrast.
