This project, a double helical monumental stair project in Richardson, Texas, was completed by BV Detailing & Design, Inc.

The stairs form a double helix from Level 01 to Level 03, with intermediate landings. The outside support tubes are HSS20x12x5/8 on a 17'-7 radius; the inside support tubes are HSS20x8x5/8 on a 7'-7 radius. Guardrail posts were detailed for the attachment of perforated metal panels and wood handrail.

Real Page Lakeside was awarded First Place Commercial in the 2016 SDS/2 Solid Steel Competition.
