When Falmouth University were looking for a striking feature to draw the eye upon entering the new Creative Bridge building in Penryn, Cornwall. Bespoke staircase specialists Spiral UK had the perfect solution.

The building, which connects the AIR building (Academy of Innovation and Research) and the new Launchpad building, was created as a welcoming space for visitors with a look and feel that reflected the University’s innovative and creative brand.

Spiral UK knew that the staircase they were commissioned to design, manufacture and install needed to make a stunning centrepiece so, working closely with the project team, the bespoke staircase manufacturer made sure they created a staircase design that really delivered.

Spiral UK Managing Director, Eric Nicholls, explains

“It was a real privilege for our team to work on such a prestigious project we crafted this helical staircase in mild steel, added hardwearing porcelain tiles for the treads and made the balustrade from toughened curved glass on one side with a white plaster inner.

“This staircase design is very popular, it gives a wonderful flowing arc to the curve of the stair which in this case leads visitors up to the Chancellor’s offices. An incredibly effective centrepiece solution.”

Spiral UK work on all types of bespoke staircase projects for the commercial and public sector. Recent jobs include staircases for Salesforce tower and Sony Interactive’s head office in London, Swansea University and large fire escape staircases for Exeter University.
