Hanson Shared service centre based in South Gloucestershire is an international aggregate company, owned by the Heidelberg cement group. The Chipping Sodbury offices, which support the UK business with approximately 350 staff based at this site, required a new lift to be installed in a 1970’s building.
Hanson’s FM company, Bristol based Almeda Facilities Ltd, approached the platform lift experts, Invalifts, for their advice on the best solution to fit a lift inside the existing stairwell.
Invalifts recommended their MC2000 platform lift, as they were able to supply and install the lift with a bespoke shaft size of 1150mmx1590mm to enable the lift to fit perfectly within the stairwell.
The three floor lift was installed with a small 60mm ramp at the base of the lift which enabled the lift to be fitted without the need for the customer to excavate the normal 60mm pit.
The lift was specified with a fully glazed shaft and glazed doors to maximise the natural interior light and match the unit within the surrounding glass lined balustrade. It was also specified with an auto dialler to enable emergency communication.
To find out more about the MC2000 platform lift, you can give Invalifts a call on 0845 468 2543 and speak to one of their friendly experts.
