Coworth Park Hotel Staircase

The Client asked us to consider a number of options for the design of a grand sweeping spiral stair in a main foyer area of the new hotel building.  We undertook a number of conceptual designs ranging from a freestanding single stringer steel structure to closely supported steel and timber structures utilising solid balustrading.  

The freestanding stair took support from floor levels only, whilst subsequent schemes utilised supports at intermediate levels.  

We modelled each of the options to consider the impact of deflection on the behaviour of the stair which was the primary governing factor in each of the designs.
