Our dedicated and experienced lift installers and lift modernisation team is here to offer a full turnkey solution to improve your old lift, at a fraction of the cost of a new installation.

Wherever you are in the UK, whether you need to modernise one lift or a whole fleet of lifts, our lift installation engineers and project team is here to make your existing lift more reliable, secure, comfortable, cost-effective and eco-friendly.

Our lift modernisation services include:

  • Lift aesthetics – fitting new panels, flooring, wall finishes, handrails and lighting
  • Changes of use – updating controllers, drive systems and door systems
  • Ensuring reliability – replacing old, damaged and aging systems
  • Reducing energy usage – installing new systems to reduce energy consumption and even return energy back to the building
  • Meeting new safety regulations – bringing lifts back up to current safety standards and ensuring they follow modern safety regulations

We’ve delivered successful modernisation projects for local authorities, NHS trusts, universities and housing associations as well as retail groups.

From passenger lifts to goods lifts, from one lift to an entire fleet of lifts, we are here to offer a wide range of modernisation services.

Alternatively we can offer lift replacement or full lift installations.

Services for all needs and budgets

We’re aware that in times of economic downturn, budgets need to be spent wisely.

To help you get the most out of your budget, we will audit your existing lift and recommend the most cost-effective method of lift modernisation for your building, whether it is a full modernisation, partial modernisation or component upgrades.

An experienced cross-functional team

Our dedicated modernisation team is here to plan and put in place your lift modernisation project from start to finish.

From our technical staff who will put together your design plans to our project managers who will ensure that your lift modernisation is completed on time and to budget, to our experienced installation engineers with experience of working in a wide range of industries, we will improve and enhance your lifts to an exceptionally high standard.

We’ll keep you updated every step of the way

Communication is our number one priority and we will work closely with you to ensure that your needs are met.

If there are people living and working in your building, we will communicate with them to make sure they are aware of what is going on at all times and avoid disruption so they can go about their daily business.

We provide the most innovative and eco-friendly products

We source the most innovative products to add value to your lift, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint.

For example, we offer LED lighting, standby lighting, smart controllers that go into low power mode when not being used and components that can generate electricity that you can utilise in your building. We can also provide spring roller guides to reduce friction and provide a quieter, more comfortable lift ride.

As an independent lift company we install open protocol parts, ensuring the flexibility and availability of parts in the future.

We’ll keep you compliant with regulations and keep you safe

Lifts need to be accessible to everyone and comply with regulations including the Equality Act.

Our knowledgeable lift maintenance team will work with you to ensure that your renovated lift is fully compliant and safe to use.

All of our work is done to BS EN 565511 and BS EN 565512 (code of practice for the undertaking of modifications of electric and hydraulic lifts.

We offer lift maintenance and repair too

We’re proud to be a ‘one stop shop’ for all your lift requirements and once we have modernised your lift we also offer lift maintenance and repair services to keep your lift fully-functional.
