Sevenoaks Hospital’s Lift Number: 1
Start/end date: January 2015 – April 2015
Job type: Replacement
The existing bed/passenger lift within the main hospital had reached the end of its useful life and being a hydraulic lift was using a large amount of power.
Following a tender process, Guideline Lift Services secured the contract for the complete replacement of the lift with an electric traction machine room-less lift including removal of the existing lift and completion of all associated building works.
Guideline Lift Services were appointed as principal contractor under the CDM regulations.
The new bed/passenger lift was equipped with evacuation facilities for use in the event of an emergency.
The client has benefited from considerable cost savings due to variable frequency technology and energy saving lighting.
The project was completed within budget and on time to satisfaction of the project team.
