Danish retail brand receives the Essential Projects one stop shop treatment

Flying Tiger steel staircase

Over recent months we have seen a transition in retailers wanting a metalwork partner that can provide all the bespoke architectural metalwork components required in a refit project.

Essential Projects has recently finished a redevelopment project for Danish retailer Flying Tiger, in which we manufactured and installed all the required bespoke metalwork elements.

Tracing their roots back to a flea market in Denmark, Flying Tiger Copenhagen is a Danish design store offering an ever-changing selection of own-designed products at affordable prices.

The brand operates from 94 stores across the UK.

As part of a refit development for their Tottenham Court Road, in London, Essential Projects was contracted by Oakwoods UK to manufacture, supply and install a bespoke powder coated stainless staircase to allow its customers to access a first-floor shopping area.

The staircase had to be designed in such a way to allow for the installation of a stairlift which was being retrofitted at a later date by other contractors. This required the installation of additional staircase treads which were drilled in to place to accept the extra steel beams required to support the stairlift.

To also help comply with building legislation, Essential Projects installed a bespoke balustrade and handrail system to complement the newly erected staircase.

Commenting on the project, Essential Projects, Managing Director said “This is another great example of how our metalwork expertise has enabled us to provide our client with a cost-effective one stop solution without having to engage with multiple partners. Combined with Flying Tigers growing digital presence, this store now has a modern aesthetic that will hopefully attract shoppers into store.”
