Leading contract lifting projects in Salford

Our contract lift solutions encompass a varied range of services in which our experts can handle all aspects of the lift, spanning from the initial planning stages all the way through to final execution. At the earliest design phase, we typically use market-leading CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift, and can then move onto the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.

All this is delivered by our very own in-house staff, giving you the total confidence you need to Make the Safe Choice with Ainscough. What’s more, we can also provide the option to choose several of our services in the form of a single bespoke, turkey package – one that’s tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
