Working closely with Turner Townsend, Classic Lifts were awarded the contract for the modernisation of all lifts and lifting platforms throughout the Velocity Village scheme on Tenter Street in Sheffield.
Velocity Village is set across 5 buildings located on Tenter Street in Sheffield City Centre and comprises 364 apartments and more than 100,000 sqft of commercial office and retail space with over 550 parking spaces. In April 2012 the 612,000 sqft development was acquired by MREF11 working in partnership with Newby Management and with immediate effect plans to completely redevelop the site were commenced.
In 2013, working closely with Turner Townsend, Classic Lifts were awarded the contract for the modernisation of all lifts and lifting platforms throughout the scheme. Over a two year period this will involve the complete replacement of the control equipment and modernisation of the lift car interiors on the seven gearless MRL, five geared MRL, and two lifting platforms which provide vertical transportation throughout the development.
This development is one of the premier mixed-use commercial and residential developments within Sheffield City Centre and as such Classic Lifts are proud to have been chosen as the contractor to complete this major modernisation project. As each stage of the works is completed a comprehensive warranty maintenance contract will commence and will continue to run for a period of seven years from completion of the final lift works thus ensuring that continued levels of reliability and service are provided well into the future.
