Another Month of Modernisation!!

The month of October was another successful one here at Ascendant Lifts & Escalators. We are delighted to share the news that we have been awarded the lift modernisation win at the picturesque Grand Atlantic Hotel in Weston-Super-Mare.

The Grand Atlantic Hotel is an elegant Victorian hotel that is set on the stunning seafront, offering breath-taking panoramic views of the Bristol Channel.

The Passenger lift on site dated all the way back to 1962 – which is older than most of us here in the Ascendant office! (And only 5 years older than our fantastic lift modernisation specialist Tony, sorry Tony!!)

As you can imagine, the lift which has been taking hotel guests up and down to the various floors for over 50 years and needed some restoration and repair to bring it up to a modern and reliable standard. You guessed it – that’s where we come in and work our Ascendant magic…

Following our survey and successful tender process we cannot wait to get stuck into yet another lift modernisation. This will completely rejuvenate the lift and bring the hotel up to date from a reliability and health and safety viewpoint with a more dependable piece of equipment available to the staff and public alike whilst leaving the hotels vibrant, periodic features untouched.
More to follow on this project once the equipment arrives at site and our engineer complete this complex project.

Elsewhere, we also have recently completed a modernisation at Lyndon Hall Care Home in West Bromwich.
Our client asked us to look an old and unreliable unit – we were on site the very next day to carry out our detailed survey so that we could submit our detailed proposal.
Following receipt of order and the ordering of the equipment from our preferred supplier we managed to complete the works within one week of site time.

Our works included new open protocol control system with shaft wiring and positioning system, new landing and car operating panels and indicators as well as various H&S upgrades. The works were tested and commissioned by our technical manager and handed back to the care home.

The home manager was thrilled with the finished product which has completely rejuvenated their passenger lift and brought some much-needed reliability – just another job well done from our fantastic Ascendant Team.
