Custom staircases and railings require engineering to ensure they meet Ontario Building Code requirements. Granite Engineering Services has worked on a number of custom staircases and railings.

 

The wooden log staircase is a floating staircase.

 

The metal staircase is also a floating staircase. The homeowners wanted no supporting pillars underneath to interfere with traffic below the staircase, so GES engineered it to be self supporting.

 

The railing was a case where the homeowner wanted a metal railing instead of the one originally constructed in the initial build.  Granite Engineering Services engineered the new railing to meet Ontario Building Code Standards.
