Technical detail:

Lazenby installed 315 m² of Light Natural polished concrete floor, 100mm deep over a concrete subbase in the curved grand entrance. Lazenby pre-cast 29 concrete stair treads in Platinum Grey in their Yeovil factory and installed them onto a steel frame in Guy Nelson Hall. The pre-cast treads were cast with two carborundum strips inset into the concrete to form a both a practical and aesthetically pleasing detail. The half landing was split into three equal pieces so that it followed the architectural design and flow of the treads.

This high profile new build has positively transformed the experience of visitors, students and members of the school. The specification of Lazenby’s durable, practical and impressive concrete floor and stair treads get top marks.
