Metropolitan Police Property Services’ Lift Number: 1
Start/end date: February 2015 – April 2015
Job type: Modernisation
The five existing lifts were substantially modernised by Guideline Lift Services in 2008, however none of the five lifts served the top floor of the building.
Due to storage shortages in the building it was decided to extend the existing firefighting lift to serve the 15th Floor and provide access to newly created storage and office space.
The works were specified by Guideline and negotiated with the main contractor already working on site.
The extension was carried out over three phases in order for the main contractor to cut an opening at the 15th floor, diamond cut through the machine room floor slab and extend the lift shaft. New equipment was manufactured and installed to match existing lift entrances and the firefighting system was modified as required.
The lift extension was completed on time and within budget to the satisfaction of the tenant – Metropolitan Police Services.
