Birmingham Lift Refurbishment Brings Old Buildings Back to Life

Back in the nineteenth century, when the modern elevator was still seen as a novel way to transport people from one floor to another without the inconvenience of stairs, the UK’s second city – Birmingham – was enjoying its heyday as the industrial heart of the world. Little wonder then that the city embraced the innovative passenger lift, and even today there are plenty of Victorian buildings across Birmingham with stylish early-20
th century passenger lift cabins, although the mechanisms have been thoroughly refurbished to meet current regulations.

What is Birmingham Lift Refurbishment?Birmingham Lift Refurbishment

Birmingham lift modernisation and refurbishment provides an alternative to ripping out lifts from older buildings, and installing new ones. One of the advantages to Birmingham lift refurbishment is, of course, the price; repairs and replacement parts can be scheduled incrementally. Equally important, though, is the affection with which older passenger lifts are now regarded. Replacing old with new can shift the style and aesthetic of the building, whereas a period lift passenger cabin with the mirrors, floors and lighting replaced retains the elegance and style of the original, whilst offering smooth and efficient transport, minus the creaks and groans.
