Somerby Hall

Canal Architectural designed, manufactured and installed a feature staircase for Somerby Hall in Lincolnshire.

The team designed three helical, mild steel staircase structures with laminated and curved floating glass. The striking structure was designed to wrap around the lift of the council building and required expert skill and precision to secure the structure. The toughened and laminated glass balustrade was resin fixed into the channel stringers and featured a brushed stainless steel finish. All steelwork was site sprayed to smooth over any fabrication marks and welded joints.

The talented project management team at Canal Architectural worked closely with the contractors to ensure smooth fitting of the structure in line with current building regulations.

Eagle House

Canal Architectural were approached to manufacture and install a feature staircase for an office development in London. Eagle House was recently refurbished as part of a new wave of developments in the area but retained many of its former Art Deco features.

The mild steel structure was installed from the ground floor to the second floor with six flights and landings. The staircase featured folded plate treads, toughened and laminated glass infill panels on the balustrade and a brushed stainless steel handrail. The staircase blended well with the contemporary designs and industrial architecture that Shoreditch is well known for. The Canal site team worked closely with the contractor throughout the entire installation process to ensure smooth delivery and fitting on site.

1 Severn Street

Canal Architectural were approached by Associated Architects to design and manufacture a feature staircase for their new office premises in Birmingham. The staircase was needed to gain access to the meeting, library, and mezzanine areas of the building.

The client required a staircase structure that integrated with the industrial type surroundings of the development. Canal manufactured and fitted a modern, straight steel staircase that was clad in 2mm steel and sprayed on site.

The result was a contemporary steel staircase solution that blended perfectly with the industrial studio space. The project management team at Canal worked closely with the client to install the bespoke staircase in line with current UK staircase regulations to ensure a smooth delivery and seamless finish.
