Kallisto Stairs - Precast Concrete Curved & Helical Staircases - Handcrafted to Your Specification

As a division of Milbank Concrete Products, we have over 75 years of exceeding our customers’ expectations and our name is synonymous with quality within the precast concrete industry. Our philosophy is firmly rooted in our drive and ambition to establish the most extraordinary creations. The definition of success for us is delivering a curved stair design that is perfectly in line with your requirements as our customer. 

Our expertise has been commissioned for curved concrete staircase installations in some of the most prestigious venues throughout the UK, incorporating both commercial and residential construction. We work with Architects, Engineers and Designers on both staircase design and manufacture to produce stunning, durable precast concrete spiral staircase style installations. 

However innovative your vision, with a Kallisto precast concrete helical staircase, there is no need to compromise on aesthetics versus durability, or on elegance versus functionality. In addition to our concrete stairs, we also design and manufacture a range of curved concrete step units including cantilever staircases and a variety of accompanying precast concrete products such as bespoke curved landings. 

How we’re making a difference

We have been proactive in adapting our processes to work towards carbon neutrality, introducing both a wood pellet fuelled biomass boiler and electric vehicle charging points for staff and visitors.

On top of this, we have successfully transitioned 100% of our production machinery, including fork trucks, loading shovels, shunters, dumpers, cherry pickers and prestressed concrete manufacturing machines from the use of regular diesel to HVO – a hydro-treated vegetable oil biofuel.

By adopting 100% HVO, greenhouse gas emissions produced by our machinery reduced by up to 90%, with a 35% reduction in particulate mass and a 30% reduction of CO2 company wide.

Advantages of Precast Stairs

How much do our stairs cost? 

Our precast concrete stairs are inexpensive when compared to a stair cast in situ due to the efficiencies within a controlled factory environment. 

How long do they take to install? 

Our curved and helical precast concrete staircases can be installed in a day and often at the same time as the structural flooring. Insitu poured concrete stairs usually take weeks to build, cast, strip and finish. 

Are they safe and secure? 

Precast concrete staircases can be used as soon as they are installed - they provide an immediate working platform. Insitu poured stairs will require alternative access routes to the upper floors while they are being built. 

Are they as high-quality as in-situ stairs? 

Using a flexible steel formwork system in a controlled offsite factory environment enables our precast stairs to be made accurately and to a high quality. Precasting allows the repeated use of formwork, whereas in situ concrete pouring results in the formwork being disposed of on each project. 

Why are Precast Concrete Stairs the smarter option over in-situ stairs? 

Efficiency - Our curved staircases are quick to install and are designed and supplied to exact build fit and specification, accelerating the build process and minimising time spent on site. 

Health & Safety – In most cases, once installed, our concrete stairs act as an immediate access route for follow on trades and can easily be installed with the addition of a temporary handrail. 

Fire Rating - Our curved concrete staircases are completely fire resistant. 

Quality - All precast components are manufactured off-site in an enclosed casting environment, avoiding delays due to inclement weather conditions. 

Cost - In most cases, our precast stairs eradicate the use of costly traditional in-situ concrete methods. 

Flexibility – Our precast stairs can be installed within a variety of applications including steel framed structures or tied directly into your concrete floors using projecting reinforcement.

Who knew concrete could look this good?

May 2022

Staircases are a focal point of architectural design – in large open spaces they make a statement, and if you have a specific design specification in mind, you’ll want flawless service from design, right through to installation. There are a huge number of benefits when opting for precast concrete. Let us show you…

Milbank Concrete Products, based in Essex, are pleased to introduce you to Kallisto Stairs – a proven UK-based concept for precast-manufactured curved stairs.

With a passion for craftsmanship and pushing the boundaries of construction, our mission is to manufacture and install beautifully bespoke precast curved, helical, and spiral stairs in the UK’s most prestigious properties.

We believe we are the only company in the UK that can provide bespoke precast concrete stairs as economically as possible, without any compromise on quality. How? We design, manufacture, deliver and install the stairs ourselves, which ensures we maintain control of the entire supply chain and, more importantly, exceed our clients’ expectations every time.

The advantages of opting for bespoke Precast Concrete Stairs

Bespoke – every single one of our stairs is hand crafted at our factory in North Essex, assuring the end product is completely unique to your client and their property

Quality – Using a flexible steel formwork system in a controlled offsite factory environment enables precast stairs to be made accurately and to a high quality.

Cost – Precast stairs are a cost-effective alternative to expensive steel or timber structures. The manufacturing process allows for less man hours, thus reducing costs considerably.

Speed – Precast staircases can be installed in a day and often at the same time as the structural flooring. In situ poured concrete stairs usually take weeks to build, cast, strip, and finish.

Safety – Precast staircases can be used as soon as they are installed and provide an immediate working platform for follow on trades. In situ poured stairs will require alternative access routes to the upper floors during the build and curing phase.

Flexibility – Precast stairs can be installed within a variety of applications including steel framed structures or tied directly into concrete floors using projecting reinforcement.

Sustainability – Precasting allows the repeated use of formwork, whereas in situ concrete pouring results in the formwork being disposed of on each project, increasing wastage. All our manufacturing machinery and yard vehicles operate on HVO biofuel – a sustainable alternative to regular diesel.

It’s all in the details…

Manufactured utilising leading European technology, Kallisto stairs can be designed and adapted to meet all design requirements at a surprisingly affordable price. Whatever your design, a finished Kallisto stair adds value and character to your project, providing a spectacular central feature.

Each staircase is completely bespoke, with the rise, going, and width able to be customised to suit an extensive range of projects and applications. From lavish spiral staircases in prestigious properties with generous space, to winder staircases in town houses where space is of a premium.

In addition to the adaptability of the moulds, the ability to manufacture off-site makes for a highly cost-effective solution for even the most elaborate staircases, along with benefits to both quality and efficiency.

Bringing an element of sophistication and elegance to any property, the versatility of precast concrete means that not only is a Kallisto stair resilient, solid, and durable, but can also be attractively finished in a material best suited to the property i.e., wood, marble, stone, or tiles.

Kallisto Stairs - Lime Grove Mews

February 2022

Lime Grove Mews
Located in the heart of Shepherd’s Bush, Lime Grove Mews combines classic English architecture with contemporary designer luxury. Lime Grove Mews will bring an exclusive collection of elegant apartments & Regency style villas to West London.

Situated amongst leafy parkland and nestled within the traditional Victorian streetscape, Lime Grove Mews is within minutes of direct transport links into central London’s world-renowned retail and financial districts.

The exteriors resemble the Regency style architecture featuring mellow brickwork, which reflects the surrounding vernacular. With the classic combination of London stock brick, render/stone detailing and reconstituted slate roofs, their timeless façade hides their modern interior. These interiors have been intelligently designed for the ultimate 21st century living experience. All apartments will enjoy high specification fixtures and fittings throughout.

Kallisto's Role
There were numerous reasons for specifying precast concrete for the stairs in this scheme:

Quietness combined with the inherent solidity of concrete delivers a feeling of substance and quality to the homeowner.
Speed of construction offered considerable benefits, namely, stairs were delivered and fixed with each floor.
Construction site kept free of associated construction materials.
Safe and uninterrupted access to the upper floors post installation allowed trades to
continue other tasks.
A superior final finish is achieved with a final plaster skim or cosmetic timber facing.

The Developer

St James began life in 1996 as a joint venture between the Berkeley Group and Thames Water. Many of its first developments were on brownfield land where water was, or had been, a feature: for example at The Hamptons in Worcester Park or New River Village in Hornsey, north London.

Since then St James has established a reputation as a design conscious developer who continues to regenerate redundant sites as attractive developments whose design has a positive impact on the environment. Not all involve water; and many include the refurbishment of important historic buildings, such as Queen Mary’s Place in Roehampton or Kingsway Square in Battersea.

As well as private developments of homes and apartments, projects also embrace commercial property, recreational and community facilities, with creative solutions that deliver every aspect of sustainable mixed use development and respond to the needs of today’s homebuyers and communities.

During high quality precast concrete solutions for the construction industry and their experience and reputation led to them being chosen to partner St James on this project.

Kallisto has invested in the latest variable curved, helical and spiral stair production moulds, allowing them to offer a fast turnaround at the highest quality for even the most challenging projects.

The scheme at Lime Grove Mews required no less than 13 different stair types, all with varying riser heights and both clockwise and anti-clockwise turns. These were constructed at Kallisto’s factory in North Essex then delivered and installed on site by their dedicated transport and expert fixing teams.
