Case Study - Millbank Tower Lift Equipment Modernisation

Modernisation

Background

A landmark building

Millbank Tower is a landmark building beside the River Thames, it comprises the 32-floor high rise tower and the low-rise building. The equipment consists of original Otis equipment which was installed circa 1970. As part of the service provision for MKM were asked to update selected crucial lift equipment.

Challenge

Availability & reliability

Our challenge was to integrate new state of the art equipment with the retained ageing lift equipment whilst providing maximum availability and reliability for the fully occupied building, in particular the upper floors in a multi- tenant, multi-use property.

Solution

State-of-the-art lifts

As part of the close relationship forged through the service provision, we were familiar with the equipment and customer requirements. We shared these with the new equipment manufacturers and presented a plan to upgrade the equipment on a phased programme. The new equipment fully integrates with the retained 1970’s components, including incorporation with a new Building Management/Remote Monitoring system. The customer is now benefiting from state-of-the-art lifts providing exceptional reliability with open protocol UK sourced equipment. The modernisation programme is on-going.
