Commercial Stairs for Architects, Designers, and General Contractors


Gorgeous and striking staircases are not just found in homes. When it comes to designing, crafting, and installing commercial stairs in buildings, few companies possess the capabilities and craftmanship of Southern Staircase. We are experts in custom commercial staircase design and understand how to meet the needs of hospitals, libraries, government offices, and other buildings providing a stunning quality staircase with a beautiful design specially made for your building.

A staircase is more than a means of getting from one floor to another. The right staircase makes a statement. It echoes and often sets the style for a building. Whether that staircase style calls for something grand or subtle, traditional or modern, soft or angular, we understand how to design and build the perfect complimenting staircase.

Choosing us to craft a staircase for you means your stairs are in the hands of true professionals that master the art of stair design and building detail. Unlike other stair companies, we do everything from start to finish. Design, building, fabrication, and installation are our specialties. We’re here to work with you from beginning to end while remaining on schedule so you can have your brand-new beautiful stairs finished on time.

Customized Commercial Stairs

Space is a major consideration in a commercial building. Your project may call for a large, open floor plan, or you may have a limited amount of space in which to work. Regardless of your design constraints, we can design and build a staircase that fits perfectly and is visually impactful. We have the highest quality craftsmen working in shop to construct your very own custom stairs designed to enhance your property.

Work with Our Expert, Knowledgeable Staff

Safety is extremely important to us. We want to help you minimize risk and maximize the stability and strength of your staircase. Our experts understand building codes and are here to help guide you during both the design and build stages. We have decades of expertise in many safety situations and would love the chance to share our knowledge and awareness to ensure you receive the very best in quality installation.

Building a customized commercial staircase begins as we come together on the design. A primary goal during this conceptual time is to balance cost with aesthetic quality, which will set the parameters for the project as a whole. Next, we formulate a more detailed plan, including design and budget alternatives if needed.

As your project moves into the build phase, we are here to support you along the way – always maintaining our promised schedule. We project manage each phase of the process, ensuring your design and installation is always in the most capable of hands. At Southern Staircase, we offer turnkey installation service meaning your stairs are designed, built, and installed fully by us so you never have to turn to outside contractors.
