Our Projects Manager Jeremy Walton elaborates:
“Primarily with our now tried and tested teamwork ethic. Sheridan Lifts alongside the ISG team on-site planned in detail all aspects of this original lift removal, adaption works and eventually the new installation.”
“Owing to the constraints of this site along with the layout of the actual building, none of the materials used for the project could be physically longer than 2.5 metres. This was of course a real challenge for us. There was no room for error in the initial survey stage and the site was a bit of a maze to navigate. The only access from the delivery bay through to the lift shaft was via tight winding corridors”
Located on the former Goldbeaters site the existing passenger lift was redundant and out of service. Sheridan Lifts conducted a structural survey that took into consideration both the 19th and 20th-century building methods, access and installation.
Work began on the removal of this lift in February 2019 and once safely cleared we installed, specifically set out scaffold to suit our specific installation method.
We took delivery of the new lift via an articulated lorry with a team of 6 engineers and the Project Manager. Lift Plans and specific RAMS for this task were required for ISG and Sheridan Lifts admin. This contributed strongly to the efficient delivery and swift commencement of this new lift installation.
