Hanson Birchwood put 18 months' effort into coming up with the design for a three storey precast concrete staircase for St James Homes. The housebuilder wanted a sound absorbing concrete version of staircases that had previously been constructed on another site in timber. This called for a combination of L and U shaped stair flights in plan, incorporating winders and finished with a smooth curved and winding soffit.
