- Passenger & Goods lift refurbishment
- Option-based replacement solutions

- Rated ‘Excellent’ by tenants and visitors
Background: Located only a few steps from Regent Street and Oxford Street, London’s prime retail shopping locations, 17-19 Cavendish place was scheduled for major modernisation of the two existing lifts in 2015. The property is a six storey mixed tenanted commercial building with two basement floors. 17-19 Cavendish Place houses a number of tenants as well as high profile businesses, therefore when the existing lifts began to show signs that they were starting to reach the end of their serviceable life it was clear that action needed to be taken. Both appearance and lift availability were paramount to the building’s management team to ensure that occupants and visitors alike had a positive experiences of the building’s services.
Our approach and solution: Working with our client, Temple Lifts proposed a replacement programme for the two lifts. The first is a larger, 8 passenger machine-room-less lift (MRL) which serves all floors above street level. The second is a goods and passenger lift with a capacity to hold 5 passengers and travels from the basement to the 5th floor. The new goods/passenger lift that Temple Lifts would install would have power operated gates on each landing station as well as within the lift car itself.
Prior to the handover to our customer, as with all projects of this nature, thorough and detailed testing would be undertaken to ensure that the lift performs to the high quality standards that we have become renowned for.
The Result: Temple Lifts replaced both the aging passenger machine-room-less lift and the goods/passenger lift within the agreed budget and time frame.
The completion of this lift modernisation project returned the building’s excellent service status for the satisfaction of tenants and visitors alike.
Ongoing Maintenance: Following on from the lift modernisation, Temple Lifts was awarded the ongoing maintenance contract for the three lifts at 17-19 Cavendish Place.
