Help with stair design

Hi Ness,

Apologies for the confusion on the previous post. After a site visit and careful measure, have had a rethink and probably should have forwarded the following info at the begining. Attached is a sketch of the available area for  the set of stairs. Maximum for the overall length is 4500mm and the winder on ground floor must be within 1200mm. The winder and flight to the 1st floor landing can be less than 2000mm but no greater. Would like to achieve 170 risers and 270 treads if possible with  the above constraints. Hoping this is now clearer your help gratefully  Chris

Hi Chris,

Your stair looks good.

I don’t understand what you mean by wanting the overall length to 5000mm.

Nor increasing the number of treads in  winders.

Can you explain with a sketch?

Best would be to post a sketch of the stair well with the sizes so that I can see what you need to fit into. 

All the best,

There may be a problem in opening the file attached to my earlier request. If so try this one

Ness thanks for the stair design you sent me in response to my request. I have made changes to the top winder and the overall width.(see attached)smile I am now wanting to get the overall length down, ideally to 5000mm. Currently the winders at the top and bottom of the flight are very lazy. How do I increase the number of treads in a winder? Any other suggestions most appreciated.
