Specialist Structures - Architectural Metalwork
Melia, Smith and Jones have worked on various structures requiring specialist structural advice. These have been varied in their nature and have posed some interesting engineering issues which MSJ have addressed with innovative engineering solutions.
MSJ have carried out work on various metalwork designs for complex staircase structures, canopies and balustrades. The various designs have solved the issues of complex geometry, specialist loading conditions and dynamic considerations.
A new iconic footbridge has been built over the M20 motorway near Ashford in Kent. MSJ were commissioned to design the feature stainless steel balustrade.
Westfield Stratford City is the gateway to the Olympic Park and the largest urban shopping centre in Europe. MSJ’s role included design of the cantilever glass balustrade tracks which had numerous different support configurations whilst maintaining the same outward appearance.
St Pancras Renovation
The first class lounge at the new terminal for the Eurostar service required something out of the ordinary for the main staircase. The result is a stainless steel helical stair with cantilever glass balustrade.
Melia Smith & Jones has amassed considerable experience in the design of architectural staircases for prestigious projects throughout the UK.
