Our expertise in the Heritage Sector
Keeping people and goods moving in challenging sites across the UK
With 150 years' history of our own, we are passionate about heritage projects.
Installation or refurbishment projects that need to consider the fabric of a listed building or retain a period feel to a lift, whilst benefiting from new technology, are amongst our favourite challenges. Our design team and engineers have met many heritage challenges and provided outstanding solutions.
We have installations in museums, civic buildings, cathedrals, theatres, hotels, railway stations, housing – even ships and palaces – all in well-known locations of national importance. We are delighted to work on heritage projects, meeting all the challenges of contributing specialist organisations, such as English Heritage. We are proud to provide continuing maintenance to ensure the lasting performance of these special lifts in very special locations.
Contact us to discuss your requirements – we know we can help.
