Euston Tower

Project: Euston Tower, London
Sector: Commercial commission
Client: Peldon Rose

Project Overview:

Full commission for the design, fabrication and installation of a bespoke staircase for office refurbishments on the 33rd floor of Euston Tower in Central London.

Staircase comprises steel PFC stringers with steel trays incorporating Beech hardwood treads. The stringers support an aluminium glazing channel with outer cover panels to the PFC to conceal all fixings. Each stringer had to be fabricated in two section to enable access to the 33rd floor (see below). Metal Fabrications UK worked with Peldon Rose at an early feasibility stage to demonstrate to the main client how the required result could be achieved given the difficult access to the 33rd floor.

All steel work to the staircase was powder coated to a colour match similar to stainless steel as per the client’s requirements. The balustrade consists of toughened glass with stainless steel slotted handrail. All handrail joints are fully welded and polished to provide an Avant Garde finish.

Metal Fabrications UK worked tirelessly to achieve a fast-tracked programme which contributed to the client occupying the office space as per the contracted deadline.

Solution to Access Difficulties

Euston Tower is a 60’s built skyscraper in the heart of London and posed many challenges to the haulage of materials up to the 33rd floor. The majority of materials could be transported via the goods lift, however the stringer sections required lifting up to the 33rd floor via the fire escape stairwell.

Each steel section weighing approximately 100kg and 3.7m in length was safely lifted up the stairwell using a 4-man team and hoist. The work was completed over a weekend and was achieved with no damage to the steelwork or the finishings of the stairwell. A 3D CAD model was used to prove the solution would work and enable only a single bolted joint at the intermediate landing.
