Concrete Steps and Landings
Concrete Walkway Heated
Our architectural concrete finishes are the most in-demand of all of our concrete work. We felt it would be interesting to present this project since it was a departure from the typical stairwell and landing front entrance for a house. Steel piles and a heated slab were used in this construction job.
Concrete paths and landings were completed after the installation of the planter walls. Engineers opted to use steel piles because soil tests revealed that the ground was too soft to build on without some kind of support. Stairs and landings were supported by six-foot-long steel piles.
Concrete Stairs Poured
Simple and Elegant
Insulation was installed for the concrete stairs and landings, they were to be heated with a glycol in-slab heating system. In order to withstand point loads above the piles, the concrete was increased to 6 inches in thickness, resulting in the design being transformed into a structural slab design. The stair risers are also illuminated for added convenience.
After the concrete had been poured, it was subjected to a sandblasting process. Architectural finish (also known as light sandblast architectural finish or architectural finish) is a common term to describe this popular treatment. Concrete architectural finishes are often a standard grey concrete colour with a textured surface.
