Temple’s New Modernisation Project with CBRE at Credit Suisse, One Cabot Square

Credit Suisse , One Cabot Square. Canary Wharf, London.

For some time, Temple Lifts has been maintaining multiple lifts at One Cabot Square which is the home of Credit Suisse, a world-leading investment banking organisation. The lifts in the building are all managed by CBRE, a Global commercial real estate services firm that Temple has had a long-standing partnership with.

These lifts, during their 29 years of life, had undergone some lift upgrades in order to keep in line with the Grade A facility standards required. However, the lifts’ performance were beginning to show signs of unreliability due to the lift control panels and drives reaching the end of their service lives.

We were invited to tender and undertook and submitted a detailed condition survey and report covering various options open to Credit Suisse, to establish the high standards required from their lifts. Following this, the decision was made to significantly modernise all nine lifts.

The modernisation was due to start in the spring of 2020 included 5 fire-fighting lifts and 4 goods lifts, running at heights of up to 100m and will include installations of new lift control systems, drives and a range of ancillary items.

Modernisation works at this site were temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, but has since resumed under rigorous Health & Safety guidelines.
