Steel Staircase, Great Sutton St, London

Area commissioned LSJ Engineering to construct a steel staircase in Great Sutton Street, London, in 2019. The aesthetic of this staircase is a little different!

  • Client: Area
  • Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs
  • Job Duration: August 2019-March 2020

We designed, supplied and fitted a feature staircase to a commercial building in Farringdon.

In order to create the ‘look’ Area wanted, our team worked with architects and designers. Our brief: to make the stair look as though it is made from reinforced concrete. While a little different from most commissions, this project was satisfying to carry out. We achieved our brief with ‘saw toothed’ stringers, laser cut by Pegasus Profiles. The stringers are strengthened using PFC sections.

To ensure all components were a good fit, especially the balustrades, we erected the stair in our workshop. We also built the balustrades directly onto the treads before welding. The balustrade, designed to take a horizontal load of 1.5kN, was shot blasted and powder coated by Mulberry and Pier in order to ensure longevity.

Although the design brief was challenging, we think the finished stair is pretty good! What do you think of it?
