Historic, Listed & Religious Building Lifts

Historic, Listed & Religious Building Lifts

Traditionally, disabled access to historic, listed and religious buildings can be challenging. Finding the best position for your lift solution ensuring the installation does not interfere with the building’s features and meets planning requirements is paramount.

We supply and install compact platform lifts that are freestanding with their own self-supporting shaft. Our platform lifts for historic buildings, listed buildings and religious buildings do not need wall support or a lifting beam which means they can be installed either with a very small pit or none at all making them unobtrusive with a minimum space required.

We are able to offer a comprehensive service; as well as design and installation, we offer complete builders’ work and project management support to ensure that work is carried out quickly and safely within the agreed timescale, keeping disruption to a minimum. We also provide a range of service aftercare support.

Legislation requires that organisations comply with the Equality Act, which replaced the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) in October 2010. Our expertise and experience means that you can be confident that we are able to fully advise you in meeting these requirements.

Amalgamated Platform Lifts has one of the largest aftercare support teams across London and the South East. We are happy and able to service and maintain other lifts in your building so please feel free to ask for a quotation.

Lincoln’s Inn, London

During the refurbishment of the Old Hall in Grade 1 listed Lincoln’s Inn, we were required to install a lift that would be in keeping with its surroundings and still meet modern day disability legislation requirements. The lift was designed with a half-height, open top to ensure there was no visual impact on the historic stairwell window. Our APL4 lift was clad in bronze-effect steel, to ensure it was in keeping with the quality and nature of its surroundings.

St Andrew’s Church, East London

By installing an APL4 platform lift glazed on all four sides, visitors are enable to enjoy the comforting surroundings of this church. At the same time, the view of this historic building is not impaired. The lift allows access to a large community room 7.5 metres above the church itself, providing access for all users.

The Town Mill, Alresford, Hants

In order to reach the upper floors of this old mill, we designed and built an external lift which was completely in keeping with the building. The lift shaft was designed to look like the winch tower for the mill, complete with a reproduction winching mechanism at the upper level. We sourced the bricks for the lift shaft from the manufacturer of the original mill bricks.
