Staircase for WeWork, Merchant Square, London

In 2019, LTB Ltd commissioned us to construct a staircase for the WeWork building in Merchant Square, London. We have undertaken various jobs for LTB and WeWork (LTB has the contract to refit offices for WeWork). You can see the others here if you’re interested!

  • Client: LTB
  • Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs and Draft Structural Detailing
  • Job Duration: May-August 2019

We designed, supplied and fitted a single story feature stair in an existing building for LTB. The stair runs from level 6 to level 7 in an otherwise occupied building. Our only access to the work areas, therefore, was via a small service lift. This meant all stair parts and void support steel work needed to be 3m long, maximum, in order to fit into the building!

We designed the stair with extra splice joints in the stringers. That’s not something we normally do, but in this instance WeWork were happy to see these joints. They even asked us to highlight them by leaving the connection bolts unpainted! The other unusual feature of this stair is that the half landing is supported by hanging rods from the steel beams, rather than on posts below.
