Our expertise has been commissioned for luxury staircase installations in some of the most prestigious venues in the UK, working with architects, engineers, designers, property developers and private clients to produce stunning, durable precast concrete spiral staircase installations.
What are precast concrete stairs?
Providing rapid installation, safety and a high-quality finish, our highly-experienced team of designers, shuttering carpenters and casters can produce anything from a simple cost-effective concrete staircase to the most complex custom units at our state of the art factory.
Why should i choose a precast concrete staircase?
There are a range of advantages to choosing a concrete stair including quality, safety, structural rigidity and speed of installation. From price to aesthetics, they are the smarter choice over traditional methods such as timber or steel.
Are your concrete stairs finished?
We provide the structural precast concrete base component only. Our curved precast concrete stairs are generally cast inverted on steel pallets, with a hand troweled soffit. The ex-mould finish of these flights complies with NSCS Standard Specification - “Plain” and the hand troweled soffit is NSCS Standard Specification “Basic”. On completion of installation, the stairs can be finished by other trades in a material of your choice that best suits the property, such as marble, stone or timber.

Yes. We have a dedicated in-house design team with over 70 years experience who specialise in bringing your ideas to life. We are well equipped to offer both design and engineering/structural support advice to all of our clients.
