Internal Fire Escape Stairs for WeWork East Road

The LSJ Engineering team was enlisted by LTB to create some internal fire escape stairs for WeWork’s building in East Road, London.

  • Client: LTB
  • Modelled by: Mark Ebbs
  • Date: June-July 2018

This stair runs up through voids in the concrete floors, which were formed during the building’s construction. The stair stringers are supported at each level from the floor slabs. Half landings are supported on posts. You can see the plans for the fire escape in the gallery below.

A 3D survey was taken of the whole stair void area. We carried out the full design of the stair which had a balustrade with perforated sheet infill panels, all powder coated off-site.

The stair stringers were produced by laser cutting one piece each from steel plate. This was carried out by Pegasus Profiles, who have CNC machines large enough for the job.

What do you think of the finished fire escape? We’re pleased with it!
