Steel Feature Staircase at Berners St, Westminster, London

The LSJ Engineering team was appointed by Oktra, an office fit out company, to design, supply and fit a feature staircase for their Berners St project in Westminster, London.

  • Client: Oktra
  • Modelled by: Mark Ebbs
  • Job date: May 2020

This stair is unusual in that the stair stringers extend to full height to form the balustrades. Handrails are fixed to the inside face. The unique design made installation quite challenging, because the large powder-coated sections had to be manually taken through a double door, then around internal doorways and lifted down to basement level. This all had to be done without damaging the finishes… still, we like a challenge!

The area in which the stair was installed was very tight, so we trial erected the stair in our workshop. When our team did the trial, we discovered a major problem fitting the treads. With the stair destined for such a small space, the problem would have stopped the installation had we not found it. As it was, we changed a few design details, and installation went very smoothly and ahead of programme. We’re very pleased with the finished steel staircase. What do you think of it?
