Palace House, London
Modernisation of a 6 floor goods passenger lift within an occupied international language college.
The “back to guides” modernisation included replacing all the major lift components and bringing the lift up to the most modern standards where practical. The specification called for a heavy duty door solution so we installed Wittur Pegasus doors on the car and landings including a higher rated stainless steel for the one external entrance.
The project experienced supply chain issues which were handled professionally and the customer and consultant kept up to date at all times.
Ashford International Station, Kent
Modernisation of 7 hydraulic lifts including back of house, car park and terminal lifts with live platforms and terminals.
The drive equipment was upgraded to VVVF types which allowed the client to claim money back as part of a government eco-scheme. With the lifts being essential to the station’s footfall, it was crucial to the customer that the downtime was kept to a minimum. Regular site meetings with all key stakeholders ensured the project was continually progress monitored.
During the six-month programme we achieved 100% rating on all Health and Safety audits conducted by the Principle Contractor. This project has now featured as a major article in the June issue of Elevation magazine highlighting the collaboration between all suppliers, contractors, customers and consultants that contributed to this successful project.
Hawksmoor Restaurant, Covent Garden.
Installation of single bespoke goods/passenger MRL traction lift serving a busy restaurant replacing an unreliable lift maintained by others.
Working for a consultant we were asked us to find a solution to replace an existing lift with a new heavy duty unit fit to cope with a hectic schedule of deliveries and continual staff use. Our proposal consisted of Wittur MRL mechanical package with Pegasus doors combined with a Lester Controls electrical package and other third party open protocol ancillary parts.
Due to the location of the site all deliveries had to be scheduled for pre 10am and with limited storage available the logistics were a challenge. However with careful planning and our dedicated project team the lift was handed over on time and on budget.
The lift has now been added to our service portfolio with a 2 year warranty contract.
