Staircases and balustrade for a Hotel

Our Client

Our client is a fabricator based in Leeds. They were appointed to fabricate and install staircases and balustrade to an existing frame. The existing frame required a survey as deviations where found compared to the supplied drawings. 

Our Service

Our scope of works was to produce fabrication drawings of the balustrade and staircases. From the architectural drawings in conjunction with the survey information from we produced a 3D CAD Model using Autodesk Advance Steel. The architectural drawings were used for the balustrade details. The structural engineers drawings were used for section sizes. The challenge of this project was that the existing frame was not as to the drawings provided. Therefore the frame required a survey. Based on the survey the stairs required a re-design in accordance with Approved Document K. 

 

Our Output

Based on the 3D CAD Model we produced a General Assembly drawing for approval. The GA drawings shows all the beam location and sizes. Further, our GA drawings show all the connection details. This allows the architect and structural engineer to understand our design fully and comment/approve.

Once approval of the GA drawing was given, we produced the fabrication pack. The fabrication pack consisted of:

  1. General Assembly Drawing issued for construction. This drawing includes all relevant views (Plan, Elevation, Iso metric) with dimensions and beam numbers
  2. Assembly Drawing for welding
  3. Single Part Plate drawings for laser cutting
  4. Material List
  5. Bolt & Anchor List
  6. Erection Bolt List (bolt list assorted to each beam)
  7. NC & DXF files for pre-cutting
