Stadium Steps – Concrete Stairs

Stadium Steps

Precast Concrete Stadium Steps

 

National league football team, Maidstone United have recently expanded their stadium capacity from 2,200 to over 3,000 to cater for increasing demand. Spanwright UK were selected by the main contractor to design, supply and install precast concrete stairs and concrete landing slabs along with precast concrete flooring for hospitality suites.

The stadium was first built in 2012 and features concrete terracing with a steel structure overhead. The £400,000 extension was completed on schedule in an impressive 12 weeks in time for the first home match of the season.

The stadium steps had a total width of 3.6m to cater for a high flow of foot traffic so consisted of 1.8m wide flights placed aside each other. Such is the level of accuracy in production that the identical concrete stairs fitted together perfectly. Solid landing slabs were also placed at the top of each flight as is the norm in many external steps. There was also a small floor area to be covered with 200mm prestressed concrete slabs.
