Urban Design were commissioned to design and install a composite external staircase with a integral canopy unit above for a major blue chip retail outlet to the side emergency exit of one of their stores. The main frame was manufactured from galvanised mild steel and incorporated chequer plate treads, landings, integral side balustrading to all areas. Above the stairway was a patent glazed glass over canopy with running front gutter channel and downpipe. The complete framework and glass canopy unit was manufactured at our works and assembled on site for fixing to the external building face. Working under extremely tight deadlines the structure was completed ahead of schedule to the complete satisfaction of the client.
