Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Midlands

Our contract lift solutions cover a range of services in which we can undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift, spanning right from the initial design right through to final execution. At the early design phase, we use market leading CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the project. From there, we can then move on to the method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.

None of this planning is outsourced to any third parties. Instead, it’s all undertaken by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, allowing you to have total confidence that you’ve chosen to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. Should you require, we can even combine multiple services into a bespoke, turnkey package – one that’s tailored to your specific schedule and requirements.
