London Lift Modernisation

London Lift Modernisation

If your lift is looking tired, or has diminished in performance, London lift modernisation is an efficient, and cost-effective way to upgrade the system. It requires considerably less investment than a lift replacement would, whilst the benefits are largely equivalent:

  • Appearance. Your lift looks and feels new to passengers.
  • Performance. A high-quality experience for passengers using it.
  • Eco-Friendly. A modernised lift will use less energy.
  • Safety and Reliability. The potential for breakdowns is minimised.
  • Durability. London lift modernisation increases the life of your vertical transport.

Tower Lifts has been delivering lift modernisation in London since 2006. Over that period, we have built a reputation for delivering on budget, to deadline without compromising on quality. Our factory trained engineers are able to work on virtually any lift model, using innovative technology to remake your vertical transport for current use.

What is London Lift Modernisation?

London Lift Modernisation

When a lift is modernised, it means that outdated or obsolete components have been removed and replaced with their modern equivalents. This isn’t ‘like-for-like’ replacement; the modern components are normally safer, more efficient, they comply with the latest legislation, and they reflect a more contemporary aesthetic.

Lift modernisation projects may include:

  • New control panels, control systems or door operators.
  • Safety improvements such as upgrading the landing system, replacing cabin lighting, two-way emergency communication, replacing cabin doors, installing an emergency power system.
  • Repurposing lifts if a building has undergone a change of function. This may involve turning a heavy goods lift into an attractive passenger lift.

Whatever the requirements, Tower Lifts designers and installers work with architects, building managers and owners in a wide variety of commercial, residential, and industrial buildings in London that require lift modernisation. Our London lift services are on hand to offer advice on the best long-term solutions, as well as offering comprehensive design, fit and installation services.

Case Study – Passenger Lift Modernisation in Croydon

Working for a leading UK developer, Tower Lifts was part of renovations and development work at Impact House in Croydon. Originally built to house offices, Impact House has undergone extensive refurbishment, in order to create a stylish and prestigious residential apartment building. Tower Lifts provided extensive modernisation of 3 existing passenger lifts, requiring an enhancement of their performance, appearance, safety, and reliability.

Case Study – Lift Extension for Swallow House, King’s Cross

Tower Lifts recently worked on an ambitious modernisation project at Swallow House, King’s Cross, as part of the building’s major expansion. An additional two floors were added which required full lift access. We extended the existing lift system in order that it would serve the additional two floors, making it a 6-stop, rather than a 4-stop installation.

Selfridges – Big Solutions For Big Brands

Based in the South East, we regularly undertake lift servicing and lift modernisation projects in London. We were delighted to be asked to install a custom built lift for the Beauty Workshop at the Selfridges store on London’s Oxford Street. This follows our previous work in their prestigious flagship store, providing three car-park lifts and a goods and passenger lift for the world-famous Food Hall. Our ongoing relationship with ‘the world’s best department store’ is testament to our professionalism, design skills and the overall quality of the service we offer.

Working With Tower Lifts

For the past two decades the Tower Lifts team has been designing, installing, and modernising passenger lifts and goods lifts in the commercial, and residential sectors. We provide tailored maintenance packages for businesses that include an ongoing modernisation programme of work in order to guarantee high performance, and fully compliant vertical transport.

If you have a lift that requires modernisation, or repurposing, Tower Lifts engineers will carry out an audit to determine the extent of the work required. We can then manage a staged component and systems replacement process from start to finish. We are an ISO9001:2015 Lift Cert and UKAS approved company adhering to all current Lift Regulations.
