Senior Structural Engineer
Spiral Staircase Systems

Spiral Staircase Systems (UK) are one of the world's leading manufacturers of bespoke staircases. I have had the pleasure of working for them for 25 years, throughout which time they have consistently produced extremely superior products, and stand alone by their reputation for designing and installing staircases of the highest quality. In the design office we utilise sophisticated 3-D CAD software which produce true-life renderings of the designs, and then we use equally sophisticated 3-D analysis software, including Finite Element Analysis, which together provide both high quality images of any proposed design, along with the analytical proof that they will perform to the most stringent of building code requirements.
