LIM BROTHERS

A U-Shaped staircase built by Stairworks for a commercial building in Auckland.

The main goal of this project was to build a U shaped staircase with a large span all the way to the large tilt slab wall. Structural steel became the obvious choice because it gave us rigidity, so we used it for the channel stringers and flat plate steel risers and treads.

 

This allowed for us to use thick, oak treads. Square section balustrade posts and oak handrails with perforated metal infill panels were used to create a contemporary block pattern.

 

Because of this, light was able to pass through and achieved the industrial design look the client was after. We fabricated off site and assembled on site in order to have a hassle free installation for our clients.
