Classic Lifts Case Study – Battersea

Battersea, London

Point of contact:
Bob Talbot, Senior Site Agent at Tolent Construction Ltd

The brief:
As part of a residential development project, Tolent Construction Limited called on Classic Lifts Limited to help with the completion of a lift installation, where problems had arisen due to failings from the original appointed lift contractor. The lift company that Tolent Construction were originally working with were not cooperating and unable to complete the project.

Build time:
The project started in December 2015 and was completed by January 2016.

Classic Lifts Limited were called upon just before the Christmas break whilst the building and project was well underway. And due to difficulties with the originally appointed lift contractor. This meant that engineers had to act swiftly during this challenging period and, at short notice to ensure that the ongoing project didn’t fall behind the proposed completion times.

The Solution:
Hydraulic machine room-less lift which was completed by Classic Lifts exactly as planned and within timescales specified.

The result:
Norman Campbell, Regional Director at Tolent Construction Ltd said: “I would like to thank Classic Lifts, the lift engineers, and the commissioning engineer for the help and commitment they gave during the installation. They carried out a practical programme and had the right staff required on-site. Throughout the entire process nothing was a too much of a problem, it was all positive.”

Bob Talbot, Senior Site Agent at Tolent Construction Limited added: “I have worked with many lift companies over my 38 years of site management and it goes without saying the service received from Classic lifts is without doubt the best I have ever received from others. I would have no hesitation of recommending Classic Lifts to others and I do hope I get the chance to work with them again.”
