    Hi just looking for a ball park on a bog standard timber stairs for a commercial premises.
    Straight staircase, 3050cm floor to ceiling, 1m wide, needs to be a 1m landing in the middle to be up to code I gather.

    Can it be timber in a commercial building ?
    Fire safety and limited combustibility and all that.

    I've recently shopped stairs for a housing development I'm on. We'd usually price stairs at €1,600 +VAT from local joiners but I tried -snip- and they were unbelievable value.

    Their typical house L-Shaped stairs (one landing) I was quoted €950.00 +VAT. Please note this is supply only so you'll need a carpenter.

    Precast Stairs from -snip- is about €1,000-1,400 +VAT. Obviously depending on the building and access it may not be an option. I've never ordered a single stairs though so our big orders usually including a crane in the above rates.

    Off topic but very relevant.

    What is this stairs in a commercial property going to, how big an area and what's it used for? You know you could need a fire certificate which could trigger a Disability Access Certificate and if the floor the stairs is going to is a big area you might be forced to put in a lift. Then you've BC(A)R which is formal sign off.

    You need to be careful as deciding to put in a small mezzanine area in a commercial building can involve a huge amount of paperwork and regulations if that's what you're at.
