The client, a public building owner, needed to comply with disability access requirements by installing a Platform Lift in Leisuredome, Ashbourne. The building had a single staircase that led to the upper floors, making access difficult for people with disabilities. The client approached us to supply and install fully enclosed platform lifts to provide safe and reliable access for all visitors.
Step 1: Choosing the Right Lift We worked closely with the client to determine the best type of lift for their needs. After reviewing the building’s layout and usage, we recommended a fully enclosed platform lift that could accommodate both wheelchair users and those with mobility issues. We also provided detailed information about the lift’s features, including safety protocols, weight capacity, and control systems.
Step 2: Planning the Installation Process Once the lift was chosen, we worked with the client to plan the installation process. We provided a detailed timeline, including a schedule of work and timelines for each stage of the installation process. We also ensured that all necessary permits and approvals were obtained before beginning work.
Step 3: Preparing the Site Before installing the lift, we prepared the site by removing any obstacles and ensuring that the area was safe and secure. This involved clearing the area around the staircase and ensuring that there was enough space for the lift. We also ensured that all electrical and plumbing connections were in place before beginning the installation process.
Step 4: Installing the Lift Using our team of experienced engineers, we installed the lift according to the agreed-upon schedule. We ensured that the installation was carried out to the highest standards, with a focus on safety and reliability. We also provided ongoing support and advice to the client throughout the installation process.
Step 5: Testing the Lift Once the lift was installed, we conducted extensive testing to ensure that it was functioning correctly. This involved testing the lift’s safety features, weight capacity, and control systems. We provided detailed documentation of all testing procedures and results to the client.
Step 6: Maintaining the Lift After installation, we provided ongoing maintenance and support to ensure that the lift remained in excellent working condition. This included regular inspections and servicing, as well as providing advice and support to the client on how to use and maintain the lift.
In conclusion, by working closely with the client and following our six-step process, we were able to supply and install a fully enclosed platform lift that provided safe and reliable access to all visitors.
The lift complied with all disability access requirements and was installed to the highest standards of safety and reliability. We are proud to have been able to help the client meet their accessibility needs and look forward to working with them again in the future.
