Independent Elevator Consultants for the UK
Taking risks with elevators can result in injury and trauma for passengers. That’s why anyone with responsibility for a lift has a duty of care to ensure that passenger lifts are regularly and reliably maintained; that they are safe to use, and that disabled users can access them easily. In order to achieve this, businesses require specialist skills and knowledge – which is where elevator consultants come in.
Tower Lifts provides peace of mind for business across the UK. The job of elevator consultants is to ensure that:
- All passengers are safe and can access elevators
- Employees know how to use goods lifts safely
- A high standard of maintenance is assured
- Recommendations for repairs, modernisation or refurbishment are reliable
- Elevators maintain compliance with LOLER and Health & Safety
How Do We Deliver Peace of Mind for UK Businesses?
Tower Lifts engineers provide a range of consultancy services dependent on the requirements of your business. You may want experienced professionals to audit a legacy lift maintenance company. Or maybe you’re commissioning a new passenger lift and you need development and tendering expertise. Many of our clients require a consultant to carry out a lift inspection in line with LOLER regulations.
We offer the following elevator consultancy services:
1. Lift Surveys, Audits, Inspections
Lift surveys are normally carried out for clients who are considering the acquisition of a building with a legacy lift. Elevator audits (also known as maintenance audits) assess the performance of a maintenance company according to a standard set of criteria. Lift inspections are required for LOLER compliance. It is “a systematic and detailed examination of the lift and all its associated equipment”.
2. Lift Modernisation/Refurbishment
It is rare that lifts need replacing; far more common is the requirement to modernise or refurbish components. Modernising a lifts components is equivalent to an upgrade. Outdated or worn parts are replaced with the most recent version. Often this brings efficiencies and improvements in its wake. Lift refurbishment provides like-for-like replacement of components and often refers to more aesthetic alterations.
3. New Lift Development
We regularly work with design teams or architects who are involved in elevator installation projects. We have nearly 2 decades of experience in this area of expertise and can provide consultancy around scoping the project and writing the lift specification, the tendering process, project management, and passenger health and safety.
