Lifts, escalators and moving walkways for public infrastructure
Compliant step-free access for stations, airports, and other major projects.
Large public infrastructure projects like railway stations, underground stations and airports need especially reliable and hard-wearing lifts. Just as importantly, they take sharp project management to complete the works with minimal disruption – especially in a fast-paced environment where many contractors work at once.
We design, install, refurbish and maintain passenger lifts, goods lifts and escalators and moving walkways for infrastructure throughout the UK.
As well as extensive work supporting the nation’s railways, you can find our units in place at Heathrow, Luton and Bristol airports – and even on the Severn Bridge, where two of our six-person traction lifts have been operating since 1988.
From single units to nationwide portfolios of sites, we’re happy to handle all building and electrical works as well as the lift equipment – so you can focus on the rest of your project.
Access for infrastructure: tailored lifts, escalators and more
Whatever the size or demands of your infrastructure project, we have the equipment you need, including:
· Heavy-duty passenger lifts
These hardworking lifts can stand the everyday pressure of busy public spaces – indoors or outdoors – with tough finishes and anti-vandal features.
· ST moving walkways
Our horizontal walkways and inclined travelators are ideal for accelerating the flow of people through high-traffic sites.
· A2 escalators
With standard, slimline and heavy-duty options, our escalators offer a range of dimensions, angles and speeds.
Explore our full product range for more options, and remember: every installation is unique. Our team will work with you to identify the right units for your project and tailor them to your exact specifications and requirements.
Ongoing partnerships: our work with Network Rail
For the past couple of decades, we’ve been working with Network Rail to install, modernise and maintain over 1,200 lifts and escalators at stations across the UK, in line with the government’s Access for All programme.
Often working alongside other contractors on major transformation projects with tight turnaround times, we provide units to a bespoke National Rail specification.
Our projects with Network Rail include:
· Birmingham New Street Station and The Grand Central Birmingham Shopping Centre
As part of a £750 million regeneration, we installed 41 lifts and escalators across the station and shopping centre. This included bespoke units and adjustments to accommodate Grade II listed features, limited space and existing structures.
· Haymarket Station, Edinburgh
To help manage high footfall and congestion, we customised three lifts to fit narrow shaft constraints and allow through-car access for this Category A listed station.
· London Bridge Station
We helped update Central London’s oldest station as part of its award-winning modernisation under the Thameslink Programme, installing eight passenger lifts, two goods lifts, and a Lowriser platform lift.
With a high concentration of railway stations in and around the capital, we’ve established a dedicated London Infrastructure Branch, which focuses on our installations at London Bridge, Waterloo, several DLR stations, and more.
Fully certified engineers working on pre-approved equipment
Every engineer that works on a railway project is certified by the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme and holds Personal Track Safety status in line with NR/L2/CTM/021 – so you can have full confidence that they’re operating safely and well within government guidelines.
Plus, all our lifts, escalators and moving walkways are compliant to industry standards, including the Governance for Rail Investment Process, and the Department of Transport’s NR/L2/CIV/193 design standard.
