The Apprentice - New Broad Street Staircase

The latest instalment in BBC's The Apprentice saw Sir Alan Sugar greet his prospective candidates from the steps of a Spiral Staircase Systems feature staircase. The staircase is situated in the atrium of New Broad Street House business centre in the City of London, and connects the reception with the lower ground floor level breakout area.

This substantial staircase incorporates 2 large stone plinth treads, a large tapering rest-landing which continues upwards to form a straight upper flight. Expansive cream stone treads were supported from painted mild steel stringers and toughened curved glass balustrade panels were finished with a satin polished stainless steel handrail.

Spiral Staircase Systems worked closely with RHWL Architects to produce this extremely spacious staircase that measures 1616mm between handrails at the smallest point! The size and prominent location ensure that this staircase is the focal point of the 7 floor atrium.

Sneak Preview!

Here's a sneak preview of a project that is currently in the design stage. The staircase is to be the main feature for a large blue-chip communication company's new headquarters and is to be situated in one of the most distinguished office buildings in London's 'midtown' area.

The double-flight helical staircase is to include a solid 'monolithic' inner balustrade and toughened glass to the outer. Although some of the specification is still to be confirmed, the overall geometry is a great example of a large Part-M compliant office staircase which has two rest-landings per flight.
