Lifts and Escalator Design Consultants for New Construction
For lifts and escalators in new building construction projects our lift and escalator consultants will work with the architect and design team through all RIBA stages including feasibility, concept, schematic and detailed design of the buildings vertical transportation - ultimately creating a bespoke specification for the lifts and escalators of the project which is independent of lift or escalator manufacturer allowing competitive procurement to take place.
Upon receipt of tender returns from lift and escalator contractors we can undertake technical and commercial analysis of proposals to support the contractor selection process. From there on our lift and escalator consultants with review the developed lift designs, and can provide full monitoring of the lift and escalator installation through to final completion, witness testing, and handover.
Lift and Escalator Refurbishment Consultants
For lift refurbishment projects our experienced lift consultants would initially carry out a lift condition survey, following which we provide lift refurbishment options and associated considerations; the same would be carried out for escalator refurbishment projects. Once the scope of works for the lift or escalator refurbishment has been agreed, we will develop a technical specification and support the project through tendering, tender review, contract award, monitoring one site and final completion. Where applicable and required we can offer contract administration and CDM2015 Principle Designer duties, as well as other engineering services such as structural engineering advice.
