The majority of the projects that TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman work on are refurbishment and modernisation projects. We have a wealth of experience updating lift and escalator systems. Our approach is to first understand your needs and precise requirements and then to create an action plan detailing how your specifications will be met and in what time frame. Performance is usually at the heart of any refurbishment and modernisation project. Refurbishment could be prompted by wear and tear or alternatively they could be driven by a desire to increase the sustainability of a building or to meet with new industry standards.Installing a Destination Control System is one example of how the performance of a building can be improved during a phase of refurbishment or modernisation.
Refurbishments could be far more extensive or a framework agreement could involve work being completed on multiple sites. It is because of this that TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman offer a comprehensive range of services that include:
- Special Requirements
- New Developments
- Aesthetics & Finishes
- Optional Features
Dunbar and Boardman were instructed by Merseytravel to arrange and project manage the replacement of the obsolete and out of service exterior wheelchair vertical platform lift at the entrance to ‘The Beatles Story’ at Albert Dock, Liverpool. The lift was approximately 20 years old and has been out of action for many months and was deemed to be beyond economical repair. Its service life has expired and as a result The Beatles Story could not accept any wheelchair using customers and some other disabled persons.
Dunbar & Boardman needed to obtain permission from The Albert Dock Estate Landlord’s, Liverpool CC Planning Permission and Conservation Officer because the building is Grade 1 Listed. When Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission were granted, Platform Lift Solutions installed the replacement using a fully enclosed framed-glass enclosure, exterior grade Vertical Platform Lift.
