Lift Engineer London

The Role of a Lift Engineer in London

The lift infrastructure in London is easily as complex as the tube network, and arguably as critical to the day-to-day running of the city. As a specialist provider of lift maintenance and repairs in the UK’s capital, Tower Lifts knows first hand the problems that quickly build if just two or three elevators break down on a typical weekday. The role of the lift engineer in London is to circumvent those problems by ensuring a smooth running infrastructure day after day.

What Does a Lift Engineer in London Do?

There are a number of key functions that Tower Lifts engineers carry out regularly in order to maintain the smooth running of the operation. These come under 3 main headings: Installation, Maintenance & Repair, Upgrades & Modernisation.

Lift Installation London

Tower Lifts engineers are known for their creativity and problem-solving skills – and there’s a reason for that. Our lift engineers in London work in a whole range of environments, each providing unique challenges to overcome. A recent installation in a Grade 1 listed building, for example, required the walls, flooring and stairs of 5 floors to be fully protected before work could take place.

We install a whole range of lifts for a variety of environments:

  •  Passenger Lifts in London shops, hotels, private houses, public buildings and apartment blocks.
  •  Goods Lifts moving food, goods, laundry and machinery between floors in commercial, domestic and residential settings.
  •  Platform Lifts providing wheelchair access up stairways, between floors and over split level flooring.

Lift Repair & Maintenance

Given the number of lifts we manage in London, the maintenance schedule is dizzying. Our lift maintenance contracts with London clients allow us to schedule in maintenance checks that are tailored to the age, usage and condition of a specific lift. We also carry out lift examinations required by the LOLER 1998 regulations. This assesses the condition of the lift, and the quality of its maintenance regime.

Ongoing repairs are normally carried out by a lift engineer in London as part of the maintenance schedule. A lift breakdown requires immediate emergency repairs from our 24/7 team in order to manage the situation and get the lift up and running again as quickly as possible. Our aim is always to solve the problem on our first visit, and in most cases we’re able to achieve this.

Lift Modernisation & Upgrades

In an ideal world every lift in London would be running at peak performance. Unfortunately we’re not there yet, but Tower Lifts engineers are on the case. We offer ongoing recommendations to lift managers with regard lift upgrades and modernisations. These sound similar, but they’re slightly different:

  • Lift Modernisation guarantees consistency of performance by regularly replacing older components with the most up-to-date version available.
  • Lift Upgrades improve the performance of your lift by replacing an older component with an innovative alternative made available by technological developments.

Tower Lifts Engineers Work Flexibly & Professionally

As a leading London lift company we ask a good deal of our lift engineers. We expect that they’ll apply their skills flexibly; bring their experience to bear on each new job and proactively work with challenges as they occur. We all take great pride in both the range of work the team is able to manage, and the professionalism with which they approach each new situation.
