Our Case Study: Grosvenor Road Project

In late 2023, our clients approached us with a unique challenge: they had secured planning permission for a new staircase to replace an existing side staircase in their garden but were unsure of how to proceed. Seeking advice and recommendations, they turned to DLS Fabrication – trusting us with their vision for a functional and visually striking addition to their home.

Understanding the importance of meticulous planning, we embarked on a collaborative journey with our clients, ensuring every detail of their project was carefully considered. Drawing upon our expertise in steel fabrication and adherence to planning regulations, we planned a staircase design that not only met their requirements but exceeded their expectations.

Our team worked tirelessly to make the agreed-upon design into reality, producing detailed drawings for building control approval. Utilising heavy-duty flat bar stringers, PFC landing framework, and anti-slip durbar treads and landing plates, we ensured the structural integrity and safety of the staircase. To enhance privacy and add a touch of elegance, toughened glass privacy screens were incorporated, secured with stainless steel fixings for durability and longevity.

Every aspect of the project was executed to the highest standards of craftsmanship. From the precision cutting and welding of the metal components to the meticulous finishing touches, our skilled artisans spared no effort in delivering a staircase that seamlessly blended functionality with aesthetic appeal.

Prioritising durability and resilience, all metalwork underwent a rigorous treatment process. Shot-blasted to remove impurities, zinc-primed for corrosion resistance, and finally powder-coated in sleek black RAL 9005, the staircase was fortified against the elements, ensuring its longevity in the garden for years to come.

Upon completion, the Grosvenor Road Project stood as a testament to the collaborative efforts of the DLS Fabrication team and the unwavering trust of our clients. A harmonious blend of form and function, the staircase not only provided convenient access to our clients’ garden, but also enhanced the overall aesthetic appeal of their property.
