Enhancing Children’s Access to Education through the Installation of a Passenger Lift at Chadwell Primary School in Romford, Essex
Tower Lifts has been asked by the London Borough of Redbridge Council to install a passenger lift in Chadwell Primary School. Previously we have worked with the Council on successful passenger lift installations at the Seven Kings High School, and the Glade Primary School and we’re delighted to have been given an opportunity to complete the ‘hat trick’.
‘Think, Believe, Aspire, Dare’ is the vision that Chadwell Primary School offers to each of the children attending the school and the team at Tower Lifts is proud to be playing a part in delivering that vision by creating the opportunity for each child to have equal access to education throughout the school premises.
Tower Lifts Provide Part M Compliant Lift for Chadwell Primary
Many schools housed in older properties, such as Chadwell, face the conundrum of needing to enhance the access they can offer to students with limited mobility, whilst lacking the headroom and pit clearance which would allow for the installation of standard passenger vertical transport. Tower Lifts have dealt with this particular problem in a range of public sector properties such as libraries, museums, hospitals and schools, and we have successfully installed Machinery Directive passenger lifts as a solution. Machinery Directive or Part M Compliant lifts operate at a ‘slow’ speed of 0.15m/s or below. As a consequence these lifts require less pit and headroom clearance, making them the ideal fit for older buildings, or inner city properties subject to restrictive planning regulations.
Passenger Lift Scheduling in the Public Sector Context
At Tower Lifts we understand that finding the perfect passenger lift solution has to be combined with creating the perfect schedule for installation. Our design and installation team have worked on numerous public sector projects and we understand that fitting in with existing schedules and timetables is the key to success. Our aim is always to provide reliable vertical transport with the maximum efficiency and the minimum disruption. To that end we work closely with stakeholder groups to plan our schedule of work, ensuring that clear and workable deadlines are agreed based on the daily needs and routines of the staff and students.
