Essential Projects was recently appointed to help improve the in-store safety of a UK based fashion retailer in Nottingham by manufacturing and installing a bespoke metal staircase.
The store, located in the heart of Nottingham City Centre required remodelling works to be undertaken, in order to provide staff a with safe and easy access point to the underground basement where additional stock was kept.
Having been contracted by Bilton & Johnson Co Ltd, Essential Projects highly skilled installation team visited the site to complete a thorough site survey and provide the contractors with a technical solution that was both aesthetically pleasing and health and safety compliant. It was concluded that a metal staircase would need to be installed, accompanied by DDA compliant stainless steel balustrade.
Using the last visual design software, Essential Projects created conceptual visuals to represent to the contractor what the finished metal staircase and steel balustrade would look like once installed.
Once the design was approved, Essential Projects manufactured the bespoke made metal staircase and steel balustrade. We then agreed a suitable timescale with the client to install the finished staircase at a time which would minimise the inconvenience caused to staff and customers.
The installed metal staircase now provides safe access from the shop floor to the underground basement. The steel balustrade now runs adjacent to the metal staircase and will provide staff members and customers with a safe walkway, that is DDA compliant and will prevent any accidental falls downs the stairs.
On behalf of Bilton & Johnson Co Ltd, Scott McGillivray said “From the initial brief, to the final delivered project, Essential Projects understood exactly what was required in order to provide a solution that was compliant but also aesthetically pleasing and fitting of the stature of this well renowned high street fashion retailer.
Commenting on the job, Eliot Saxton, Managing Director at Essential Projects said, “Essential Projects has a proven record of manufacturing high quality products for high street retailers. I am very pleased with the bespoke made metal staircase we have installed to this retail store.”
