Our contract lift solutions encompass a range of services in which our experts can handle all aspects of the lift, from consultation right through to execution. During the initial design phases, we typically use market leading CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This then gives us a solid foundation from which we can move onto the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
