Premier has pushed the boundaries again on one of London’s most prestigious residential developments!

Premier were approached to provide a solution for two areas on this development. The first task was to provide a lift for the Grade II listed waiting hall that would not impact on the building fabric and also be integral to the high grade finishes within the building.

The Brief

Premier were approached to provide a solution for two areas on this development. The first task was to provide a lift for the Grade II listed waiting hall that would not impact on the building fabric and also be integral to the high grade finishes within the building.

The Solution

Our VPL500 was chosen above all other products on the market, with low pit, low headroom, low impact and huge choice of finishes including bespoke glazed panels for the self-supporting structure.

The Installation

The lift was to be positioned within the glazed curved stair case so would need to be fully glazed on all four sides. The tolerances we had to work with were so was critical that in addition to the full glazing the glazed panels on the self-supporting structure were manufactured with minimal frame work providing a panoramic panel allowing light to flood down through the architecturally designed stair case.

The second challenge on the project was to overcome a change of level in the basement car park. The main criteria that had to be met, was for the lift to be robust, full external grade with IP rating, DDA compliant and aesthetically pleasing albeit in a basement car park environment.

The VPL200 ticks all the boxes with a full stainless steel finish and robust design made it a perfect choice for the design team.

TESTIMONIAL

The challenges on this project were two fold, access was extremely difficult due to its central location within a live occupied development and the fact one of the lifts was fitted within a Grade 2 Listed Building. However through the open proactive approach of a very experienced site team from Premier Platform Lifts along with a very organized and methodical approach to the works they successfully completed the project on time within budget
