The Arcelor Mittal Orbit

Our labour completed this special installation of 2 x Passenger / Fire Fighting Lifts in 2012 ready for the London Olympics.

This iconic structure had open shafts whilst installing and is 110m high, equivalent to 30 stops, they are 1600kg / 21 passengers, finished in stainless steel. The motor-room slab was lifted in to place at the top of the structure once 90% of the motor room work had been completed at ground level, machines, controllers, trunking and wiring.

All auxiliary items were either manufactured or supplied and fitted by us, i.e. Alimaks for lift installation, lifting beams in the machine room, storage cabinet, removable pit ladders, motor room and shaft lighting, machine guards, we provided all trunking with cover plates and all necessary tubing for machine room installation, Windcrest intercom systems inclusive FF panel, car top control unit, shaft dividing screen as per EN81 regulation and induction loop.

We also provided site management on this project
