Keeping diners happy at the Tate St Ives Gallery
Jackson regional installation teams have just completed a complex lift refurbishment project at the prestigious Tate Gallery in the coastal town of St. Ives. This refurbishment job was to replace and install a new dumbwaiter, undertaken to improve the reliability and transportation of food from Tate’s kitchen to the third-floor cafe and rooftop restaurant.
Due to its unique size and incredibly narrow 15m lift shaft, our engineers manufactured a custom-made lift car with a rise and fall door. New roping and controls were also installed, along with the lift motor and gearbox being removed and fully overhauled. Now fully commissioned, the Tate cafe’s serving staff can rely on this essential dumbwaiter to quickly and efficiently transport food to the rooftop restaurant once again.
