ThermoFisher Scientific, Waltham, Massachusetts – A custom recycled glass terrazzo was used
for this highly complex monumental staircase, with polish applied to all four sides for maximum
visibility. The front staircase custom treads were more than 10 feet long, 4” thick, and formed in
a continuous radius with bent stainless steel traction strips integrated into the nosing, and a
formed groove to accept a polycarbonate riser on the back and bottom of the tread. The glass
handrails are also supported by attachments to the actual stair treads.
