Here, we typically use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift.

All this detailed planning is undertaken by our very own dedicated contract lift managers and specialist engineers here at Ainscough, allowing you to have the complete peace of mind to ‘Make the Safe Choice’.
