Concrete Treads by Elliot Concrete & Construction
The client requested exterior access be provided to an already existing upper deck. They wanted to match the existing epoxy stone deck surface to the new stair treads and tie the new stairs to the existing property so they appeared to have always been there. Stairs were designed and constructed to be self supporting and to add no additional load to the existing cantilevered timber deck structure. With the pre-cast concrete treads, this created serious load to the structure which was accounted for in the design process through a bolt through stringer/post connection, oversized center post, embedded in 24,000 lbs of concrete.
