Steel Solutions Help Launch Seattle's Space Needle Into the Future

Albina Co. Inc. bent the spiral staircases at the newly renovated Space Needle in Seattle, Washington. The Space Needle's rotating glass floor, dubbed "The Loupe", is located just below the open-air observation deck and Albina Co., Inc. was the steel bender/roller for the custom spiral staircases connecting the two areas. The stair centilevers off concealed supports, so the staircase appears to float above the glass floor below thus creating a very unique experience for the visitors. 

Albina Co., Inc. bent 1" thick x 13 ¼" wide A572 GR 50 to yield three 180" pieces and three 144" pieces of rolled plate and 1" thick x 10-13/16" wide A572 GR 50 to yield one 80" piece of rolled plate. We also bent tube steel 10" x 6" x .625" WALL A500 GR B to a 11’ 6” inside plan view radius (the easy way).

More detailed information on the project can be found in the May 2022 Issue of Modern Steel

Spiral Staircase Leads to Statue of Liberty's Eternal Flame of Enlightenment Centerpiece at Met Gala
Spiral Staircase Leads to Statue of Liberty's Eternal Flame of Enlightenment Centerpiece at Met Gala

When guests walked into the Met Gala’s Great Hall, they were greeted by the Statue of Liberty’s eternal flame of enlightenment at the centerpiece of this year’s ball. Albina bent the 1” pipe framework for the ribbons of a towering spiral staircase leading to the shimmering flame. When our customer received the bends, they had this to say:

"We received the bends and they look great! I appreciate that everything was checked and well labeled before you guys sent it out. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to do business in the future."

The centerpiece was featured in Vogue Magazine  and a time lapse of the erection can be seen on Instagram.  Below are a few pictures from the fabrication and erection processes.
