New Lift Installation at Kingsway, LondonDate: Wed 20th June 2012
We are proud to announce that in 2012 Summit Elevators were awarded a unique project to install a lift to serve luxury apartments located at Kingsway, London.
A bespoke 8 person, motor room-less, traction, scenic passenger lift, offering a through car in a glass and stainless steel structure within an open stairwell was proposed.
The specification held its own design challenges as the client required both a front and rear entrance to the lift car. This meant that the counterweight needed to have a 2:1 arrangement to allow it to serve the ground and -1 floor.
The end product is a truly bespoke lift, which is both aesthetically pleasing as well as having the benefit of being fast, running at an impressive 1.5m/s over only 7 floors.
