The aim of this presentation is to give architects and designers an understanding of the role of creative stair design in modern commercial buildings and fit-outs. Are stairs simply a historical construction designed to vertically move human beings from level to level? Is there a social benefit to stair design? Is there a health benefit, and what does the WELL standard require?
With many new buildings under construction, and fitouts being completed in older buildings, how can you ensure that your stair is compliant with the regulations? Do we even know what regulations govern what aspect of stair design? We will answer these questions and develop some best practice applications of the regulations in the real world. We touch on the role of a specialist stair design consultant especially with spiral stair designs. Outlining the need to understand how all aspects of stairway design can work together for a superior user experience and outcome, we’ll also explore recent case studies.
Wrapping up with a look at the future of stairs in a post-COVID world, this presentation will provide the listener with enough of a degree of knowledge and confidence to approach the creative design of stairs with an improved level of understanding.
