The problems you might be facing today

Frequent breakdowns & no visibility

Constant inconveniences and a lack of transparency, lead to major dissatisfactions, delays and unexpected budget overruns.

Aging units and spare-parts

If your equipment is over 10 years old, it may fail to meet new regulations, and fall short of aesthetic expectations.

Suboptimal performance

High energy consumption, unplanned expenses, and inefficient operations are indicators that your equipment needs a revamp.

Unlock the potential of your building with Modernisation

Enhanced Safety

Don't compromise on safety. Modernisation incorporates advanced safety features. These enhancements reduce the risk of accidents and ensures the well-being of your users.


With modernisation, we proactively identify potential issues, allowing us to take corrective action before they escalate. This results in reduced downtime, lower maintenance costs, uninterrupted operations and improves the overall efficiency of your building.

Energy Efficiency

Modernisation will optimise the energy efficiency of your lifts and escalators, helping you achieve your environmental goals while lowering energy consumption and costs. By upgrading outdated equipment and adapting a data-driven approach you can identify energy-intensive components and optimise their usage.

Aesthetics & Comfort

Enhance occupant satisfaction with a revamped lift environment. Utilising modern materials and techniques, we align your lift's aesthetics with your building's style. Modernisation refreshes its appearance with features like custom lighting, contemporary mirrors, and stylish wall coverings.

Cost Management

Strategic upgrades minimise maintenance needs and extend the lifespan of lifts and escalators. By reducing frequent repairs and replacements, we lower waste generation and resource-intensive replacements, resulting in cost savings.

    Modernisation vs full replacement.

  • check icon
    • When exploring modernisation options, it's essential to carefully consider the advantages. Opting for a complete lift replacement can be expensive and lead to substantial downtime. On the other hand, modernisation allows us to save time while also minimising waste and reducing the environmental impact compared to full replacement.

    • By preserving usable equipment and implementing strategic upgrades, we can also reduce costs. Opting for modernisation will not only enhances your building's performance but also aligns with your environmental goals.
