Contractor : Lend Lease
Location : Pollok, Glasgow
Working for Lend Lease at Silverburn shopping mall we designed, fabricated and installed the centres showpiece staircase. In total we fitted seven different staircases throughout the development as well as carrying out other aspects of architectural metalwork and secondary steelwork.
The glass balustrade is secured between two parallel stringers and is capped by a circular hardwood handrail. The stair was shot-blasted and finished in high specification Maceous Iron Oxide paint. A combination of boom lifts, scissor lifts and hoists were used to safely erect the structural staircase. The same design detail was used in six other staircases within the shopping centre, and the same balustrade detail was used in many other areas throughout the development.
Architectural Metalwork & Stainless Steel
The contract involved the fabrication and erection of various other elements of architectural metalwork. In the Winter Garden area of the shopping centre we supplied bespoke balustrading and various stainless steel applications. The toughened glass balustrading is supported on powder coated flat bar posts and finished with a large shaped hardwood handrail. Circular section stainless steel handrails were also supplied and erected throughout the development.
Secondary Structural Steelwork
We also carried out various elements of secondary structural steelwork for many of the retail outlets in the shopping centre during the fit out phase of the development, working directly for companies such as Specsavers and Claire's Accessories.
