Boasting the best of the best in terms of security and IT, Macquarie Telecom’s new globally certified Intellicentre 2 Data Centre at Macquarie Park is not only a technological masterpiece, but an architectural one too. Executed with unsparing attention to detail from start to finish, the central stair is likewise, the best of the best.
Featuring a stainless steel centre mesh divider that doubles as both the balustrade to the stairs and a floor to ceiling architectural element, this stair was designed, fabricated and installed by Active Metal and exceeded the expectation and vision of MacTel’s directors. The spine stringer design gives both structural strength and visual appeal whilst cast and polished concrete treads offset the fine polish of the stainless steel elements throughout.
