Heavy plate cantilevered hot rolled steel staircases, over 4 floors in newly refurbished office block with a gross weight of 35 tons of steel.
Truly spectacular achievement by Elite Metalcraft to deliver this technical and structurally demanding project within a short programme.
Each fully assembled 7 ton section was craned into place and welded to existing steel structure.
All steel surfaces were patinated and bees waxed finished. Welds to main sections of staircase had to be flat and ground smooth to exacting standards.
Handrails and tread anti slip nosings made from brass with a bronze patina finish.
Steel soffit clad in 2mm thick hot rolled mild steel. Also each toilet pod and reception was clad in hot rolled steel patinated and bees wax finish.
