Area commissioned LSJ Engineering to construct a steel staircase in Great Sutton Street, London.
- Client: Area
- Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs
- Job Duration: August 2019-March 2020
We were commissioned by Area to design and supply and fit a feature staircase to a commercial building in Farringdon.
Our team worked with architects and designers to create the look they wanted: to make the stair look as though it was made from reinforced concrete. To achieve this effect, we had ‘saw toothed’ stringers laser cut by Pegasus Profiles, then strengthened them with 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 for longevity.
We think the finished stair is pretty good! What do you think of it?
