Canal Architectural were approached to design a bespoke staircase for the homeowner of a luxury apartment in the Liverpool area. The property owner worked closely with the Canal technical sales team to design a contemporary staircase that provided access to the upper balcony area of the apartment.

The final result was the design and supply of a Cantilever staircase for a striking and modern solution. The intelligent piece of engineering anchored in at only one end, allowing the the protruding construction to overhang. The design created more space within the property and laminated glass was applied to the balustrade to withstand imposed loads. Obscured glass was added to the top landing area for a modesty solution. Finally, dark stained oak treads were added to the Cantilever structure in line with latest design trends of natural and urban finishes.

The property owner commented: “My architect mentioned Canal Engineering who I may like to consider for the bespoke stairs I needed for my apartment. On the first call I knew right away this was the right company. Their true professionalism was evident from the start with a ‘can do’ attitude, nothing of the clients wishes was too much for the team. From the design stage through to the install stage, I was kept informed and updated by call and by email. Once approved the works began on site with a great dedicated team who worked tirelessly throughout to meet a tight timescale. A special mention to Lee Hunt for his design input and for persevering with a ‘difficult client’ ; to Ricky the project manager who was always there and put everything into this project to make it work and finally the on site team with Richard at the helm who was brilliant and his eye for perfection created what is a magnificent staircase…. if I may say”

Our talented in-house project management team worked closely with the on-site contractors to ensure a smooth delivery and the staircase was fitted in compliance with current UK Building regulations.
