Lift removal and modernisation

This prioject involved the removal of a 7-stop lift shaft. Further to this, the modernisation of an existing lift shaft so that it was suitable for the new lift. We also installed the new OTIS lifts, and carried out all finshes and re-decorations to the area. The project was executed with minimum disruption to the residents.

August 2012 was the start of the new BMW Bike showroom in Bristol, we completed the first and second fix electrical installation to the new showroom and workshop areas.
Duration: 2 years
We provided up to 12 electricians to install and maintain an infrastructure of temporary electrics enabling the construction of the millenium stadium in Cardiff.
We have worked many times in association with OTIS completing many successful projects to the highest standard. This project is another example of the good work we achieve together. In this project we assisted OTIS in the modernisation of the lift shaft as shown in the picture below.
For this project we initially had to remove a substandard 12-storey lift. We also had to design and fit new steel capping to take new lift. Thirdly, we had to fireproof throughout the setting entrance to comply with firemen’s lift capability requirements.
At the prestigious Hoopers department store in Torquay we had to remove the old lift from the centre of the store, and resolve Victoria building problems, fully tank and water proof the shaft. The hoardings were adapted to comply with the client’s preferred aesthetically pleasing design ideal to blend in with the shop’s existing characteristics.
For our client Hartnell Taylor Cook we had to cut a new entrance for a replacement lift to allow wheel chair access to comply with all the relevant DDA requirements.
