    Once the survey was complete, the balustrade was drawn up and sent to the client for approval before anything went into production.

    The curved glass balustrade panels were carefully installed to the staircase. The glass is fixed only to the steel stair stringer using rolled steel clamping plates to match the tight radii of the staircase.
