We often share photos of our favorite custom staircase construction projects, but do you know the process of designing, building, and installing these stairs? Successful staircase construction is a very thorough process which requires absolute precision. To ensure quality and the perfect fit, our team follows a proven, turnkey approach to every project no matter how unique and custom it may be.
Throughout all phases of staircase construction, we work to provide a simple and seamless experience for the builders, architects, designers, and homeowners we serve.
Examining the Architectural Plans
To design the perfect staircase for a commercial or residential space, we must first assess the space itself. What stair type will be the best fit? A compact spiral stair may be best suited for a small space, while some floorplans will allow for grand curves or straight stairs in scissor, run, or L-shaped configurations.
Once the spatial needs have been determined, we work collaboratively with clients to determine the style they wish to convey. Several of our most popular design styles include rustic, Tuscan, modern, Southwestern, and traditional.
Identify Features and Design Elements
Next, we consider custom product offerings. Which enhancements will best bring the client’s vision to life? Options include, but are not limited to:
- Open riser stairs for modern open spaces
- Metal square and round balusters with scroll, knuckled or basket patterns, available in smooth and hammered textures
- Cable rail systems for a sleek, industrial aesthetic
- Flared staircases for a twist on classic straight stairs
With limitless customization options, our innovative team will bring your vision to life, designing custom stairs with the style and components that inspire you.
Develop CAD Drawings
For the final step of the design phase, our team will provide advanced CAD drawings to the client. The detailed drawings will include full staircase details. Once the client approves the drawings, the staircase construction phase will begin.
Each custom staircase is constructed by our team of experts in one of our advanced facilities. Our team leverages access to leading staircase technology, building high quality staircases with access to critical equipment such as:
- Radio Frequency glue press
- Gang rip saw
- Rail clamp
- Planer and sander
- Custom rail moulder
- Engineered CNT router for straight stairs
- CNC 3-axis and 5-axis machines
- CNC capabilities for lathes, mills, routers, and grinders
