April/May 2013

Our Dundee client wanted to upgrade the current gravelled access paths to a more stable surface. The height difference from door to pavement was 1400mm over a distance of 8 metres. The client did not want too many steps ( 8 would be required) so a solution was required to create a path with steps taking the curve into consideration. A real size display was constructed for the client to "test" before commiting to the project.

 To travel the distance and height over 4 steps, we introduced slopes between each step. The steps would be of standard level construction on the landing and take off over 300mm with a gradient of 150mm over 1700mm between steps. The display proved a success and the client was comfortable to proceed.
