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.

Paddington Office - Spiral Staircase

This feature spiral staircase is located in a events management office in Paddington, London.

It is constructed generally in mild steel, consisting of a central column with radiating folded steel treads supporting bright orange perforated balustrade panels. These are then capped off with a satin polished stainless steel handrail.

The following 3D concept renderings were produced during the design phase.

This staircase featured perforated mild steel balustrade panels which were completed in a bright orange powder coat finish. This gave the staircase an industrial but colourful look which blended in with the interior colour scheme.

Paddington Library - Completed Images

This recently completed Part M compliant horse-shoe shaped straight staircase provides access between two levels in a library in Paddington.

It is constructed mainly in satin polished stainless steel with etched glass balustrading for modesty and European oak treads and risers.

The unique tread design features an L.E.D strip recessed in the nosing which floods light upon the tread below. This detail works well with the opaque glass balustrade, giving the staircase a warm "glow".

The Apprentice 2013

Taking a supporting role in the BBC's 2013 series of The Apprentice is Spiral Staircase Systems sleek G-Fin spiral stair. A fleeting glimpse of the glass staircase can be viewed 3 minutes in on the latest episode:

The staircase was one of two stairs installed in the Grade II listed building which overlooks London's largest public square, Lincoln's Inn Field. The staircases provided a stunning addition to the £9 million property.

The G-Fin system is a versatile design that can be utilised for spiral, helical and straight staircase layouts. The design uses toughened glass risers as a support system, holding both treads and balustrade to produce an almost transparent structure.
