We were approached to install a feature staircase as well as internal balustrade and an external glass balcony at the brand new headquarters of AVTRADE in West Sussex. AVTRADE are one of the leading component providers to the aviation industry. The new HQ was a bespoke build and FLYGHT were asked to consult and manage the design, build and installation of the main feature staircase within the entrance hall, first floor glass balustrade and external glass balconies.
The remit was a modern commercial staircase with glass and metal at the heart of the design. The stair treads were frosted, not only for a slightly different look, but also for privacy. Stainless steel was used throughout for both uprights and handrails along with toughened glass for full length balustrade to the upper floors.
