Concrete Stair Treads – New York City Apartment

Concrete is not just used for countertops, sinks, and tables.  In this New York City apartment Trueform fabricated a precast concrete staircase.  Each stair tread was carefully templated and labeled to fit back into place after fabrication.  Since all of the risers were cast in concrete as well,  we needed to to use 1″ foam to template this staircase.  The foam represented the final product and we were able to work through complex areas by seeing the way the concrete would need to interact with all of the different variables.  The client chose the Signature Finish to give this staircase a more industrial look.  Each stair tread was 1″ thick and the risers were cast at 3/4″ thick.  The treads and risers were glued down over the existing stair case.  All of the seams were tight and precise, giving us a very clean looking finished product.  Cutouts were placed in specific locations to allow the custom tube steel railing to come through the concrete.  Airplane cable was used to create spacer rungs between the tube steel posts to finish off this beautiful concrete staircase.
