Lifts for offices, warehouses and commercial buildings

We install, service, refurbish – and solve problems like limited space

Lifts are an integral part of any commercial or public sector building project. Front of house or behind the scenes, your lift needs to work hard, match your design vision, and ensure you comply with the Equality Act 2010.

Offices and warehouses alike have to stay productive, all day long – so they need robust, reliable lifts that keep goods moving and people working efficiently.

Realising the vision for builders and architects

We work closely alongside architects and specifiers to find the right lift package for the job. In fact, we did just that at RIBA’s own national architecture centre

Offices and public buildings need to create the right impression. We can help you blend in with a building’s heritage, like our purpose-built lift doors for Glasgow City Chambers. Or you might want to make a bold statement, like our triplex of lifts in the conversion of EMI’s The Old Vinyl Factory into rock-and-roll office space.

In depots and behind the scenes, robustness is everything. And our vandal-proof Goodsmaster lifts are as happy lifting goods to a warehouse mezzanine as they are solving bike and bin storage in a modern commercial building.

Our wide range means we’re led by your project – not what we want to sell. We’ll listen carefully, and help you choose the right lift for your building.

Lifts for limited space, low headroom, and sensitive structures

Especially in conversion and refurbishment projects, there are often challenges. Perhaps restricted access, a narrow lift shaft, or a lack of headroom or pit space. We work hard to ensure these issues don’t limit access, performance, or design:

We can refurbish, modernise and service any brand of lift

If your project involves retaining the character of a building, you may want to keep the existing lifts – but that doesn’t mean you should settle for poor reliability or design.

We modernise and refurbish older lifts, to improve performance, meet current legislation, and enhance aesthetic appeal. We can work with any lift brand.

We’re also happy to service, maintain and repair any kind of lift – and we can deliver local and national maintenance contracts to cover the whole of the UK.

Please feel free to browse commercial sector success stories, or to contact our team. We have a long history of solving lift challenges in commercial spaces, and we’d love to help.
