Independent lift & escalator consultants

Full Design Duties

ILECS provide full lift and escalator designs for residential and commercial buildings, ranging from the modernisation of existing units through to entirely new installations.

A lift and escalator design should be developed in response to individual business or client objectives.

It's important to understand what your business wants to achieve by incorporating a lift or escalator, or refurbishing current transportation.

Essentially, a lift will manage the movement of passengers, goods and support services, including vehicle transportation and the facilitation of evacuation and firefighting. If you're looking to replace, modernise or refurbish your portfolio, we can offer you independent specialist advice on the process you need to take with your lift and escalator design.
