Feature steel staircase for landmark Bristol development
A steel helical staircase, to be fabricated by Taunton Fabrications, will be a feature element of a new 7-storey commercial scheme, which forms the latest phase of Bristol’s Finzels Reach redevelopment.
Known as Halo, the steel-framed office block is being built by Willmott Dixon and has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, while providing 10,700m2 of Grade A office space.
Developer Cubex said the building will set new standards of sustainability, wellbeing and digital connectivity for offices in Bristol.
Rising from Halo’s ground floor, the cantilever stair will be fabricated into transportable elements by Taunton Fabrications. The 90t structure is due to be installed this summer (2021).
Located in central Bristol and next to the floating harbour, Finzels Reach was once home to sugar refiners and brewers. Now the mixed-use development will soon be the home and workplace of over 3,300 people. The new Halo building, which is due to complete in 2022, sits on the site of the former headquarters of Avon Fire and Rescue.
