TOWERING TO SUCCESS IN THE CITY
Working with the UK’s most iconic buildings, alongside one of the world’s most elite law firms and a global number one CRM giant, Helston based Spiral UK are reaching giddy heights of success.
Having recently won two new contracts, the specialist stair manufacturers are installing helical stairs in the Gherkin and the Salesforce Tower, two of the UK’s most recognisable buildings.
Architecturally award winning and designed by the godfather of architecture, Norman Foster, the 180m tall Gherkin is the city’s most widely recognised example of contemporary architecture and one of Britain’s most expensive office buildings, having been bought for £700m in 2014. Spiral UK are working on a new spiral stair construction, due for completion in the Summer, installing a sweeping stainless steel and glass helical masterpiece on the 19th floor for Kirkland & Ellis, one of the world’s most elite law firms.
A short distance away sits the Salesforce Tower, also known as 110 Bishopgate, home to Salesforce - the world’s biggest CRM company. Standing at 230m high, it is the tallest building in the city with Spiral UK manufacturing a further helical design on the 31st floor, made from steel with oak treads and a glass balustrade.
Andrew Holland, CEO of Spiral UK says: “The first quarter of this year has been exceptional. We’ve launched a new website, been shortlisted for four awards at the upcoming Cornwall Business Awards and have grown our portfolio to include some of the most exclusive properties in the world.“
"The majority of the work is being completed in the dead of night to avoid any inconvenience to the captains of industry and global organisations that occupy these world-class buildings. So, as the world beneath these towering buildings sleep, our Cornish firm occupies some of the most valuable office space on the planet, installing beautiful stairs that enable them to continue their climb to success.”
"It’s an honour to have been chosen, amongst tough competition, to win this new work and confirmation of the quality of our design, manufacture and professionalism of the organisation.”
