‘Castle in the Sky’ Refurbishment Features Gartec Lift

May 2019

The Challenge
Framlingham Castle, an 11th century listed fort nestled in the countryside of Suffolk, has been bustling with contractors working on phase 1 of renovations – including a café, shop and new exhibition.
Joseph James, Project Manager at the English Heritage site, commented:
“As a historic listed building, the renovation of Framlingham Castle had to be carefully planned to ensure any changes were sympathetic to the heritage of the building”
The new exhibition required an access lift, but - across all the works - there were restrictions due to the castle being a listed building:
Minimal damage/building works
Installation working around other contractors
Stylish but considerate additions
The Lift
Joseph James said:
“Enabling wheelchair users and prams to access the mezzanine level and see the new interpretation was particularly important”
A Gartec 7000 platform lift fit the bill perfectly:
Minimal fixing points
Modular shaft included; no scaffolding required
Larger platform sizes for wheelchairs
Key lock for safety
The installation took just 3 days, and Framlingham Castle then added the frosted coating for privacy and for style, including the logo on the doors.
The lift can easily be demounted when phase 2 begins on the wall walk.
The Renovations
An original mezzanine has been reinstated in the old Workhouse, home to a new exhibition which tells of the castle and residents, including Mary Tudor, proclaimed Queen of England at the castle in 1553.
Joseph James commented:
“Phase 1 of our visitor improvement project saw us add a brand new café to the castle and reinstate an original mezzanine level to house a new exhibition”
Interactive games include ‘Spin the King’; try on ‘Hats Through the Ages’; and have a go at the ‘Who Eats What?’ game, before heading to the new café and shop.
The new café includes Suffolk Grumbly, a regional dish with sausage and mustard and cheese sauce, and Tudor dish Tarte Owte of Lent, made with ingredients not allowed for lent.
The Result
The new café, shop and educational exhibition look fantastic, and the lift is a stylish and functional addition that is great for prams and wheelchair users.
Joseph James, Project Manager, said:
“The small size of the Gartec lift and the finishes, including the frosted glass coating we have added, have made it a subtle but modern addition”

Twyford HQ Taken to the Next Level with Gartec

May 2019

The Challenge
The head office of international support services and construction group, Interserve, in Berkshire – a sensitive, high traffic location - required speedy, clean and efficient installation of a 3 stop lift without causing disruption or disturbance whilst working around other contractors.
As an older building, space available was very limited, so the stairwell was chosen for the project. The design needed to work with the style of the office whilst being a practical and cost effective solution.
Sheena, the Interserve office manager, was closely involved with the project. She commented:
“Built in the 70’s our office challenged Gartec’s team to design a lift that could fit into an awkward existing space and compliment the contemporary style of our corporate HQ reception”
So the challenge for Gartec was creating an installation schedule and product to fit:
Minimal disruption and building works
Quick turnaround time
Small, confined space for installation
Finishes to blend and match the surroundings
Equality Act compliant
Our Advice
We suggested installing an Aritco 7000 platform lift with a reduced width platform placed flush with the floor.
The range of finishes meant the design of the offices could be complimented, and weekend installation would reduce disruption in the offices.
The Installation
To prevent building works it was decided to place the lift flush with the floor, and a ramp installed to eradicate trip hazards and allow access for wheelchairs.
Glass exterior panels were chosen to blend with the stairs, and brushed steel finishing on the platform controls and shaft.
The platform floor was finished with a dark carpet to match the upper floors. Lighting was added for visual impact and safety.
Our specialist installers were briefed on the more difficult location requirements – the head engineer, Dave, commented:
“The installation of the lift was a bit trickier than normal as it was all glass... however it all worked out in the end.”
The Results
The installation took just 6 days even with delays from other works, with the team’s knowledge a key part of the success. After installing, we contacted Sheena to see what they thought. She said:
“The install team worked quickly and efficiently alongside other contractors to bring the project in on time and now looks like it has always been there.”
Vytas from Interserve, who was also closely involved, said:
“very impressed with the way they worked, solidly and quietly plugging away in the background without any problems”.
