Nestle Headquarters USA Monumental Stair - 2018 Tekla North American BIM Awards

Nestle USA Headquarters monumental stair is a very complex small project. This project located in Arlington, VA 22209 contains a very challenging compound curve shape (oval staircase) with lighted plate railings covering the entire stair frame. The unique nature of the inner guarding on the stair, as it slopes to the vertical as well as being curved in plan to follow the helical shape was an initial challenge. The 14GA stainless steel cladding ribbed with 3/16” thick laser cut steel cladding and rail support paired with illuminated handrails and stair underside cladding that follows the bottom slope of the stringer even makes it more interesting if not daunting. By using Tekla Structures, the detailer was able to provide full shop drawings and machine data to the workshop, to provide, all stringers, treads, Glass and SS guarding, cladding, grab rails & brackets.
