Replacement of two existing 25-year old lifts with new state-of -the-art, machine room less traction designed lifts.
TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman has been working in partnership with Connect Housing Association to completely replace the two existing 25-year old lifts within the Penwell Garth social housing complex in Leeds.
Two existing hydraulic passenger lifts were completely replaced for new state-of -the-art, machine room less traction designed lifts. The new installations incorporate heavy-duty reliable equipment, whilst maintaining a robust aesthetic appearance in keeping with a social housing setting.
The lift project is part of a large-scale capital investment plan, which includes general upgrades to the flats and communal areas.
Being of obsolete design, the original hydraulically driven Otis lifts had come to the end of their operational life. With a view to future-proofing the site and reducing running costs the new lift designs incorporated current state of the art AC gearless motors and VVVF inverters.
All utilised equipment has a 20 – 25-year life expectancy and is of robust design, offering greater operating speed and improved passenger travel comfort.
TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman were responsible for the initial design of the lifts, full project management, CDM Principal Designer duties and Witness Testing of the completed installations.
