Our lift consultant’s experience ranges from single lifts in small shops, to multiple lifts of different types (passenger/goods lifts, customer lifts, service lifts, platform lifts, loading bay equipment) in large department stores and shopping centres.

Lifts in the retail environment are used in a particular way and understanding this use – how people and material flow through the building – is fundamental to correctly specifying and selecting the lift and escalator equipment.

A selection of projects our lift consultants have worked on is listed below. If you want further and more specific information about the extent of our lift consultant’s retail experience then please get in touch.
