University of London Vertical Platform Lift

We’ve supplied a purpose made vertical lift as part of a huge building project for the University of London on their SOAS site.  The lift freestanding lift is glazed to match the glazing in the shaft framework.  A stainless steel framed door completes the contemporary look. The lift is positioned in the freestanding shaft and adjoins the second floor at the top of the wide feature staircase.

Work first began at the University of London’s SOAS site in late 2014 (news post Grade II listed project) on this incredible glass roofed project which required a stylish vertical platform lift to serve the two floors.  There was no shaft for the lift and it was required to be freestanding.  Orona, one of our trade customer’s, commissioned us to supply the vertical lift, working with Graham Construction who built the shaft framework.

The lift is now fully completed and installed and the whole building project very nearly completed.
