Lift modernisation in Cornwall’s only high-rise block of flats

The Cornish housing association managing Park House, the home for several retired residents, approached Jackson to establish the costs for a full replacement of the block’s two lifts. This was a result of the lifts becoming unreliable and at the end of their viable lift cycles.

Jackson was subsequently awarded the lift replacement contract based on our budget proposals and experience in modernising and replacing lifts in occupied buildings.

Lift removal work started in the autumn of 2021, and to ensure residents always had lift availability throughout the project, we undertook the removal and subsequent installation of each of the lifts as separate jobs.

The replacement project was fully completed in the Spring of 2022, with much delight from the residents to have two new and reliable lifts available for service.
