Millennium Needle

St Helens

Designer: St Helens Council

The Millennium Needle Staircase was a St. Helens Council joint project between St Helens Council, Birse Construction, Frank Whittle Partnership, DP Squared and m-tec who were commissioned to fabricate both the staircase and Millennium Needle.

The 20-metre mirror polished stainless steel needle is the central point of the new spiral stairway, which leads to the high-level link with the new shopping centre car park.

m-tec worked closely with all members of the team to provide the finished article which symbolises the renaissance of St Helens.

Teamwork and Transformation: St. Helens' Millennium Needle.

 It is designed to provide an engaging and appropriate tribute to the history of the town and add a visually interesting architectural feature for this formerly neglected site.

Designers' Vision:

The staircase wraps sinuously around a 20-metre-tall stainless-steel needle, visible from most parts of St Helens’ town centre.
