A dramatically detailed creation of steel and glass.

ARUP Pty Ltd Fit-out Project (2008) 108 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley

Located at 108 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, this project included the re-design of the base stair in consultation with project architects and the re-design of engineering to ARUP’s satisfaction and Form 15 certification. The stairs spanned three floors with laser-cut plate steel stringers suspended minimally by way of rod hangers. Recycled Blackbutt treads and landings display natural and past use features while its use is Green Star positive. The stainless steel and perpendicular glass offer crisp lines and minimal angular balustrades to the stairs and void.

Stringer Construction: Commercial grade laser cut 16mm plate steel visual stringers painted with bridge paint suspended via 19mm rod hangers fixed through the upper slab. (PS1)

Treads: Pre-finished Recycled Blackbutt manufactured treads encasing the steel tread plates with rebated 50mm Latham 493S “Sparkling Black” non-slip nosing strips

Balustrade: 65x12mm flat bar satin stainless steel wing stanchions with 38mm satin stainless steel through glass patch fittings supporting 12mm clear toughened glass in-fill balustrade(W4), and Continuous 38.1mm CHS stainless steel handrail.
