Fire Stair for QUT L-Block Complete

27-Aug-10
Arden has finished work on a five-story external fire stair for the QUT engineering building
With instructions from Leightons Contractors to meet deadlines at all costs, Arden has completed a multi-story external fire stair in record time. By relying on exact 3D design methods, the plan was to speed installation by pre-fabricating entire staircase flights, and then to crane into position. Assuming we could design and fabricate each flight (comprising over 200kg of steel) exactly to 1mm tolerances, they could then be bolted into position. There was a moment of bated breath during each hoist, but sure enough all bolt holes lined up and the installation could continue.

Arden hopes that the engineering department of QUT enjoys their temporarary stairs until their new accomodation is complete.
