London was once again the site of the latest Canal project. This time we were on the shores of the river Thames to install a rather special bespoke open riser staircase.
Canal worked closely with the architect to create a clear design concept from the start. The aim was to design a staircase that organically flows through the void; enhancing light flow through the balustrades and open treads.
After the design approval, Canal began drawing and manipulating the design to fit within the physical constraints within the space.
Canal fabricated the staircase in Nottingham beginning with the 10mm mild steel stringers and steel treads in.
Once the structure was completed in the factory and quality checks had taken place, the entire staircase was dismantled into manageable sections to be shipped to the site.
At the London site, one of Canal’s skilled installation teams constructed the staircase, providing a usable staircase for the duration of the build.
To finish the staircase Canal sleeve American white oak timber treads over the steel channels as well as painting the staircase stringers white. The hand stitched grey leather handrail completed this striking staircase, providing a tactile finish.
