We were asked to design, supply and fit a single story feature stair in an existing building for LTB. LTB has the contract to refit offices for WeWork. The stair runs from level 6 to 7 in an otherwise occupied building. Our only access to the work areas was via a small service lift, meaning all stair parts and void support steel work had to be a maximum of 3m long. The stair was designed with extra splice joints in the stringers. This is not something we would normally do, but in this instance WeWork were happy to see these joints, and even asked us to highlight them by leaving the connection bolts unpainted! The other unusual feature of this stair was that the half landing was supported by hanging rods from the steel beams, rather than on posts below.
We think the finished staircase is eye-catching and an interesting feature! What do you think?
