Many of Scotland’s local authorities have been undertaking refurbishment projects on their ageing high-rise housing stock. One example of this was the decision made by Renfrewshire Council to refurbish the lifts at various high-rise tower apartment blocks throughout Renfrewshire.
Following on from this decision, our team working from our Glasgow offices were asked to take part in a competitive tender exercise for the refurbishment work. The work had been identified following on from condition survey reports, which highlighted some remedial works needed to maintain the lifts’ operational status.
To accompany our tender submission, our local team visited various Renfrewshire Council tower blocks to undertake lift surveys, allowing us to accurately forecast costs and time frames to undertake the refurbishment projects.
Subsequent to our tender submission and recommendations, Jackson were awarded the contract for the lift refurbishments at various apartment blocks throughout Renfrewshire, with a project commencement date of May 2022. As part of the refurbishment contract, Jackson will be replacing the lift controllers, motors, door operating gear & landing and lift car signalisation.
This strengthens our ongoing partnership with Renfrewshire Council and continued investment in the community.
