“Hornsea’s New Town Hall was created by converting a former Methodist Chapel into new council offices and community centre. At the start of the project the staircase was the cause of much debate – the architect was insistent that a concrete stair must be used for sound attenuation purposes. Initially a pre-cast concrete staircase had been proposed, but the difficulty of getting several 2.5 tonne flights of stairs inside a Victorian chapel made that route almost impossible – certainly it raised many concerns about the H & S implications as there was no easy way to use a crane. A search of the internet found John Brophy’s company – Concrete Stairs. A cast in-situ staircase seemed to be the ideal solution; it eliminated the manual handling issues of a pre-cast stair – it also allowed the stairs to be tailored exactly to our needs and importantly the stairs actually contributed to the structural integrity of the building; rather than simply being a dead load applied to the structure. John proved to be a complete solution to this unique problem – he arranged for the structural calculations to be done on our behalf and he and his team were a pleasure to work with; our staff genuinely enjoyed working with them. They were also willing to work through weekends to ensure that our project was delivered on time. The finishedfour flight staircase was excellent – we would not hesitate to use John again.”

As you can imagine, construction of the bespoke stairs at such an exquisite and prestigious development required meticulous attention to detail, excellent craftsmanship and experienced, knowledgeable input. I am happy to say that John and the guys delivered on every aspect, on time and to budget. I would certainly use concretestairsuk.co.uk in the future, and would have no hesitation recommending them.
