This cascading monumental staircase, alternating with integrated wooden bench seating and adjacent focus booths, warmly invites students to gather and study. To give the stairs the appearance of a fully poured-in-place system while expediting the process, all vertical elements of the stairs were pre-cast offsite and installed in a pre-grout condition,. All horizontal elements were then poured-in-place, followed by grouting and grinding, Pre-made expansion joints and abrasive aggregate for the stair nosing also helped expedite the process. The stairs were designed for safety compliance.
