Across the UK the demand for premium apartments to rent or buy have never been higher, and when it comes to London’s exclusive Belgravia area, this type of property commands premium rental and purchase prices. To attract and retain both potential and existing residents, modern aesthetics and the reliability of lifts are essential to all who use the building. This is exactly the reason why Temple Lifts was chosen to undertake a lift replacement of a 5-stop passenger lift in a substantial and impressive Georgian town house which has been converted to include twelve apartments, close to Buckingham Palace.

Our approach and solution

After initial conversations with the building’s management team and lift Consultants, Temple Lifts undertook an initial survey of the existing equipment which allowed us to propose a cost-effective lift replacement solution which included the removal of the existing lift. Our proposal included the installation of a new steel structure within the existing lift shaft and all new shaft equipment including the guides. The proposal/estimate also included a new lift car, landing and car doors, new architraves and an MRL lift controller. 

Following on from our proposal submission, the building’s management team agreed to our estimate and time frames. The work on removing the old lift and installation of the new lift would be undertaken during a pre-planned building refurbishment programme.

The result

Now installed and handed over to programme, the lift is in service and fully operational in advance of this elegant Georgian building refurbishment being completed.

Ongoing Maintenance

As part of our project, Temple Lifts was also awarded the lift service contract to ensure the new MRL passenger lift performs reliably and safely as expected.
