Greenstruct Construction & Project Management have chosen the Cobute staircases for their latest residential project in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town. Designed by Ugo Rivera, the two staircases will externally connect the two levels of the residence.
The Cobute staircases are manufactured using a unique, patented system, whereby the precast girders (the left and right elements) create the external structure or shell of the staircase, which is then completed with precast ribs, interlocking panels and risers. The elements are light, easy to manoeuvre and quick to install; a straight flight of stairs can be installed, ready for casting, in roughly 2 hours by 4 workers with minimal propping and quick stripping, leading to dramatic cost and time savings and long-lasting structural benefits.
