LSJ Engineering was commissioned by Area to construct a steel staircase in Great Sutton St, London.
- Client: Area
- Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs
- Job Duration: August 2019-March 2020
We were commissioned by Area Shop fitters to design and supply and fit a feature staircase to a commercial building in Farringdon, EC1.
Our team worked with the architects and designers to create the look they were hoping to achieve, to make the stair look like it’s made from reinforced concrete. To achieve this we had ‘saw toothed’ stringers laser cut by Pegasus Profiles and strengthened them with PFC sections.
To ensure all components were a good fit, especially the balustrades, we erected the stair in our workshop and build the balustrades directly onto the treads before welding.
The balustrade, which is designed to take a horizontal load of 1.5kN, had been shot blasted and powder coated by Mulberry and Pier for longevity.
We think the finished stair is pretty good! What do you think of it?
