Location: University of Stirling

Main Contractor: Robertson Construction Central East

Scope of works:

METALtech uk were delighted and excited to be appointed by Robertson Construction Central East for a range of structural steel & complex architectural metalwork packages at University of Stirling – Campus Central .
This was a full design & build contract and the main scope of works was a very complex structural steel feature staircase, (timber cladding by others). This consisted of curved flights of stairs over 3 levels along with structural glass balustrading to the stairs and surrounding atriums, finished with a very specific cap rail to the glass and timber handrails all around to create a very stunning unique stair in the main entrance of this new building.

Services Delivered


MetalTech UK were employed by Robertson Construction at University of Stirling - Campus Central to undertake a range of structural steel and complex architectural metalwork packages. The packages involved full design, calculations and drawings for this Contractor Design Portion. Metaltech safely coordinated the on-site installation working in close collaboration with all other contractors.Metaltech UK came to the table early on with great enthusiasm and problem solving ideas. Their proactive can-do approach in overcoming challenges was fantastic. They can rely on past experience in providing engineering solutions and also uncharted territory was approached with relish and momentum. Metaltech’s design capabilities are superb.Pre-planning of complex lifts and on-site installation was carried out with flair, integrity and professionalism. From the start, all health and safety issues were scrutinised and risk assessed which lead to a smooth delivery of complex engineering structures. Of note, was Metaltech’s approach to the ‘feature stair’ installation – a curved flight of stairs over 3 levels without central support, suspended off cast in angles into the floor slabs. Cleverly designed temporary works by Metaltech provided temporary support to the evolving feature stair structure as it emerged gracefully into view.I can honestly say that Metaltech have been approachable, honest and professional throughout all aspects of design, installation and commercial aspects of this exciting project.Kind Regards Robertson Construction Central East
