Preserving Georgian architecture whilst enhancing the building’s high-quality standards with modern technology is an unsurprising reality for many commercial and residential properties within the City of London. Atlas House, 1-7 King Street is a Georgian office block that has undergone several refurbishment programmes over the past few years.
Originally constructed in 1836, Atlas House serves five floors and houses several companies across a broad range of industry sectors. Atlas House’s passenger lifts had recently been experiencing reliability issues and were not performing to the building owner’s expectations.
Following this, in February 2022, the building owner’s Lift Consultants approached Liftec to participate in their competitive tendering process for the works required to address lift reliability. Subsequently, after our tender submission, we successfully won the contract to modernise the three poorly performing passenger lifts.
On this occasion, Liftec Dartford engineers installed new lift controllers, Wittur gearless machines, Safeline 4-way SL6 autodiallers, J&L sprung loaded roller guides and Dewhurst tactile buttons.
Throughout the refurbishment works, our team took great care to avoid disturbance for the Atlas House building users and visitors.
