Synergi_Case Study Modular_Stair_1P V2

  1. 1. PROJECT FOCUS Modular Feature Stair LOCATION Bethesda MD, USA OVERVIEW Commissioned for a prestigious private equity company headquarters in Besthesda Maryland, Synergi Global worked with world renowned architect Dennis Austin of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to successfully design, manufacture and install this complete floating modular feature stair. DESCRIPTION An incredibly eye-catching yet fully functional stair that connects three floors of an existing office building. The striking design with its combination of glass, stainless steel and high gloss paint finish, creates a central sculptural element, while allowing the free flow of light – and of course easy access between the office areas. CHALLENGES In addition to the creative design, engineering expertise and specialist manufacturing capability required, an additional key challenge for this project was the requirement to install the staircase in a fully occupied space. This had to be included in the whole design process and required extra safety with total observance of health and safety regulation, minimum disruption to the tenants, and of course strict adherence to the project timeline. THE RESULTS Winner of a WBC STAR Award, the outcome is a fully modular stair system which required no field welding whatsoever, enabling a safe and seamless installation in the occupied space. Synergi was able to meet the project deliverables within budget and with exceptional workmanship. HIGHLIGHTS: 1. Creative combination of finishes and materials, including glass, stainless steel and high-gloss paintwork, carefully lit with display lighting. 2. Custom fabricated fluorescent automotive paint finish. 3. Glass treads and landings supported on inset stainless steel between stringers plates. 4. Curved central landing features supported by suspended harness system of rods and spars. The ‘floating’ balustrades for the stair and adjacent balconies are a glass panel point-supported system, attached to outrigger arms to further accentuate the floating impression. 5. Exposed fittings and stainless steel components show the incredible attention to detail and immaculate finish, creating a functional beauty when viewed from both near and far.
