Custom cast concrete stairs were required for the Holcim head office in central Auckland. Downer Construction called upon Jagas to create the bespoke concrete staircase treads and landings.
As suppliers of precast concrete architectural components, the Jagas team were ideally experienced to create a custom mould and an aggregate concrete mix that met the design specs.
The precast concrete stairs were cast with a recess along the outer edge to allow a treadsafe insert to be used for additional safety. The team at Jagas wetcast the stair treads using a 40MPA Jagas concrete mix, then honed and polished the concrete steps to add style and interest to the stairs.
Install was easy as the product has such tight tolerances. With M12 threads cast into the treads, the stair treads can be bolted straight onto the stair stringers.
Design expertise and high quality materials have resulted in an attractive and robust concrete staircase which provides safe entry to a busy professional space.
