Our expertise in the Education Sector

Keeping people and goods moving in educational establishments

From multiple lifts across university campuses to platform and step lifts for disabled access in schools and academies, our lifts are vital to educational buildings right across the UK.

Our design and technical teams help architects, building professionals, facilities managers and client/end users to provide the ideal solutions to vertical access within their buildings. In addition, our goods lifts work behind the scenes to assist with the delivery of catering, facilities management and logistics – even moving books in libraries.

Our installations teams always have a busy summer, installing new lifts and refurbishing existing stock in those vital weeks before the new academic year. We have worked within scape frameworks, the Priority Schools building programme and previously, Building Schools for the Future.

We maintain thousands of lifts in educational buildings – even supplying engineers permanently on site for universities with extensive lift portfolios. We will always go that extra mile.

Contact us to discuss your requirements – we know we can help.
