Client: Heathrow Airport
Type of works: supply and installation of enclosed steel stairs.
Peter Marshall Fire Escapes Ltd has recently installed its enclosed steel stairs within the new 87 metre Air Traffic Control Tower at Heathrow Airport. The stairs are designed to be a perfect example of how to respond to a challenge with ingenuity, experience and professionalism, ensuring that this new state-of-the-art control tower combines functionality with style. At more than twice the height of the existing control tower it is bound to become the new icon for Heathrow Airport.
Steelwork was the material of choice, in terms of space requirement, construction and cost. The tubular-plated main core is shaped to accommodate lifts, stairs, services and electronics, and the three stays ensure the rigidity criteria for the radar systems.
