I am still trying to find out what is under the step frames? - It looks like they are floating but must be anchored somehow?

They're build on a H4 treated pine timber frame counter levered out from the timber posts - the posts have been painted dark grey to add to the floating effect. Cool hey!

What is under the composite timber, if anything? Poured or pre-fab concrete slabs maybe?

What is the range of "step" platform sizes?

Sorry but I can't remember what they were. They were really quite random sizes. The only consistency was the step riser height of 165mm. Stair layout attached FYI so I hope that helps

Looks like they're fabricated from a composite decking material such as Trex, or equivalent.
