The team at Canal were approached by the client and design team at Collins Construction to manufacture an impressive bespoke staircase for the WD40 European headquarters.
The client requested a feature staircase that connected three floors and reception area inside the main building. The technical sales team at Canal worked closely with the client to address the finer details including building regulations, existing constraints, structurals, logistics and overall aesthetics. The client requested the staircase to be manufactured in mild steel with a raw oiled finish to blend with their brand identity. This project was a unique piece of engineering for the team at Canal Architectural with its dynamic design and unique helical design. Canal were extremely proud to have worked with the team at Collins Construction on this remarkable and exclusive project.
Canal Architectural recently manufactured and installed a grand sweeping staircase structure to the iconic, Regents Crescent in London. The Grade I listed building houses 67 luxury residences, 9 Garden Villas, including private gardens and 5-star amenities.
The centre of the Crescent features a magnificent double-height entrance lobby with three helical staircases. The grand, sweeping helical staircase design created a real connection between the floors and every spindle unique in design to create fluidity and movement in the installation. All three staircases were site sprayed and featured an anolok bronze finish for a contemporary look. The overall design aesthetic reflected the elegance and grandeur of the Regency period. This project was a remarkable accomplishment for the team at Canal Architectural, the increased creativity and precision in metalwork fabrication means the most complex architectural designs such as Regents Crescent can be brought to life.
The architects ORM of London approached Canal Architectural to design a complex and magnificent, commercial helical staircase. This incredible staircase was installed at the Jersey office of International Corporate and Finance Law company; Ogier. The installation team fully welded the structure together on site to prevent any defects from occurring. Structurally this was a difficult task as the atrium ascends to a square opening and much bigger than the staircase diameter. The upper floor was decked out with architectural steelwork; creating a circular opening strong enough to support the load of the floating staircase. The team worked closely with Milk Structures to complete the project to the highest standard; making it one of the most iconic Canal projects of all time.
Canal Architectural were approached to manufacture and install this elegant helical staircase for a prestigious development in Mayfair. This private penthouse apartment is located in London’s most impressive district with views over the iconic Hyde Park in Mayfair.
The mild steel structure featured oak laminated treads with a timber oak handrail and a curved, glass balustrade. LED lights were installed to the underside of the tread to illuminate the staircase and create an elegant ambience. Again, a stunning piece of architecture from the team at Canal Architectural and installed in one of the most prestigious locations.
