The Francis Crick Institute is a famous research & development building located next to King’s Cross St Pancras Station. In this project we provided 6 heavy duty steel stairs within a concrete core frame and with only 2mm of tolerance allowed between the stairs/ landings and the cast in fin plates. The stair was modelled in 3D and consisted in a multitude of different architectural areas.
One of the challenges of this project was the complexity of the half landings, some of which containing ¼ flights. Our team had to ensure that the fabrication drawings provided clear and concise information to the fabricator. We were able to do this by providing both assemblies & sub-assemblies where we could provide overall setting out with true check dims, enlarged details & isometric views to show the finished product.
