The new helical staircase has been fabricated off site, at Frank Halls & Son’s workshop, and then transported in sections to Tollesbury.
Due to the size of it (and our entryways onboard!) it came in through the port side doors – an alternative route to our main entryway, and was ‘corkscrewed’ in through the opening in the side deck and into place.
As you can see, with great teamwork and precision – the helical staircase has now been fitted in place at the heart of Trinity.
The new access route will change the way that we move around onboard from different areas and we’re so excited that this huge aspect of this phase of the project is nearing completion.
Darren, our lead plumber from Henry Martin & Sons, is pictured here preparing to connect up some pipework and making sure that he’s got all of the right fittings and fixtures. It’s always good to be prepared!
