Case Studies

Falmouth University, Penryn Campus

Spiral UK were commissioned to carry out the design, manufacture and install of a striking entrance stair at Falmouth University's Penryn Campus.

Anne Carlisle the Vice-Chancellor of Falmouth University was looking for a striking feature to draw the eye upon entering the new Creative Bridge building in Penryn. Our commercial staircase certainly met this brief and fitted seamlessly with the overall interior design.

The building, which connects the AIR building (Academy of Innovation and Research) and the new Launchpad building, was created as a welcoming space for visitors with a look and feel that reflected the University’s innovative and creative brand. Our beautiful helical staircase worked well in such a design led place of study. We were very pleased to show members of the project team around our premises so they could check on the progress of the staircase during its manufacture. Spiral UK managed the staircase design process ensuring a smooth transition from technical drawings through to manufacture and finally install. We undertake this in house to ensure a timely delivery.
