The Lindsay is one of Bupa’s many UK care homes providing nursing, dementia, and palliative care. The five-storey purpose-built care home was acquired by Bupa in 2016 and has several MRL lifts that were installed as part of the original build. One of the lifts had become unreliable and been showing signs of age and usage. Bupa, along with its lift consultants considered that repairs to the lift would not be of financial advantage and wanted a lift modernisation to be undertaken.

The process

Temple Lifts’ Southern Regional Team operating from our Havant offices, were asked by Bupa’s property managers to competitively tender for the modernisation of the unreliable five-stop MRL passenger lift. As with all projects of this kind, one of our engineering team, in this instance working from our Havant Offices completed a detailed lift survey. Subsequently, we submitted our tender along with the survey results and proposed works time frame. 

Our work

Our project included the removal of the original lift equipment and its ancillaries. Subsequently, we installed a new motor, lift controller, shaft equipment, door operators, landing, and car signalisation, we also relined the lift’s car in stainless steel. As the Lindsay Care Home was fully operational during our works, Temple Lifts’ engineers took great care to overcome any disruption and inconvenience to the residents and staff of the home who were in the vicinity of working areas.

With the modernisation completed and the lift fully tested, Temple Lifts engineers returned the lift to full service with thanks from the home’s Management Team.
