Hydratec smart™ installation Sheltered Housing Kingston

Working during the early part of January 2020, under strict Government COVID guidelines and to reinstate the reliability of the lift, our engineers completed a full Hydratec smart™ lift modernisation. The work took place in a 4-storey sheltered housing home in Kingston, Surrey, originally built in 1989 with 32 apartments and shared communal facilities.

We removed all the existing hydraulic equipment including the lift controller and undertook the installation of the new equipment. The Hydratec smart was configured with a Bucher iValve, a Lester Controls ALMEGA II hydraulic controller and a CEDES absolute positioning system.

Taking great care to ensure all hygiene and safety procedures were in place before and throughout the work, a time frame and access to the site was agreed with the residents. This included the removal of the old equipment and installation of the new smart hydraulic system.
