Ascendant News: Marina Modernisation

This weeks news story comes in the form of recognizing some fantastic work completed for one of our local, most valued customers in Sunderland.

Sunderland Marina is situated on the North East coast at the mouth of the river Wear, and offers sailors immediate access to the open sea at all states of tide. Sunderland Marina is uniquely owned and operates alongside a charitable trust which also provides Outdoor Education through its centre ‘Adventure Sunderland’ based on the seafront.

We maintain both passenger lifts at each site here at Ascendant, and recently were approached by the facilities manager on site to complete some modernisation works which were essential.

The OTIS lift in the Marina Building had been recently experiencing technical issues and required a complete modernisation.

We installed a brand new control panel, and alongside this, completed a full shaft rewire.

We completed this in just a 7-day turnaround, also installing new COP, new buttons and new door gear to keep it up to date.

The newly modernised lift is now in ship-shape condition!! (Pardon the pun…)

Modernisation works are something we pride ourselves as being experts in here at Ascendant Lifts, with projects like this one being completed as standard, throughout the year. If lifts are always prone to breaking down and look old and unkempt, it can have a negative impact on a business.

Could your business could benefit from lift modernisation? Is it something you may look to do in the near future?

Our Business Development Manager for Modernisation and New Lifts, Tony Wilson, is always on hand to give you a call and arrange a free of charge site survey. Give him a call/email on the details below.
