Concrete Stairs

Constructing a stair in concrete can be complex. Precast stairs will need careful consideration with respect to setting out and the order of construction, as they undoubtedly need lifting in by crane. They are generally of a bespoke design, and you should expect to see manufacturers setting-out drawings before they start making the stair. You will need to be clear about the floor finish as the thickness needs to be taken account of in the stair design.

Making stairs in concrete has a number of advantages. Their high mass makes them good for passive energy strategies, and the solidity of a concrete stair gives a very different feel in use, absorbing sound and vibration.
