Lloyd's of London, Lift refurbishment
Lifting up a global financial landmark
We were appointed by Apex Lifts to provide on site Project Management and Programming services to deliver this significant lift refurbishment package at this iconic building. The building is an example of the ‘Bowellism’ architectural style which has gained it a Grade I listed status, therefore any visual changes to the exterior of the building have to be accepted by English Heritage.
The project covered works to 12 external scenic passenger lifts, a goods lift and 3 fireman’s lifts. All lift cars were replaced, and lift operating equipment replaced or refurbished to bring the lifts up to the latest statutory requirements, including improving lift facilities for disabled persons. The remote monitoring system was replaced so that the future maintenance providers had open access.
All works were carried out around the day to day operations of the busy insurance market place, which meant the programme was established after close co-ordination with the client around the expectations of the peaks and troughs of the market.
Key points about the project:
- Grade I listed building
- Site presence throughout appointment
- Refurbishment of lift cars, maintaining original aesthetics
