This project consisted of one residential property, containing a total of one passenger lift. The property is the private residence of the Ambassador of Belgium.
The Lift Consultancy were appointed to manage the project from conception to completion. A full technical survey and report was originally completed which provided recommendations as to the extent of works required. Following meetings and discussions with the client, a specification was prepared and issued to tender. A full tender analysis along with post tender interviews were completed and we assisted the client in the appointment of the successful contractor.
Following the appointment of the contractor, programmes were agreed for both buildings and a pre-start meeting was held to discuss site specifics and logistics. We also assisted the client with interface trades, such as mains power and BT lines.
Mid-term progress visits were completed along with reports advising the client of progress made against the agreed programme.
Final Acceptance checks were completed at the end of the project, confirming works were installed to the specification and any defects highlighted. A final visit was completed to sign-off the defects.
Throughout the project, we were also responsible for certifying payment applications.
This was a challenging project with a very small lift shaft and the existing landing swing doors had to be retained due to the Grade 2 listing. Programme management was also key due to the number of breakfast and luncheons that the client had arranged throughout the programme and noisy works had to be managed effectively.
