Traction lift modernisations at a multi-storey, private residential building in Tower Hamlets, London
Built and completed in 1997, Dundee Wharf is one of Tower Hamlets’ historic residential developments, occupying the site of an old shipyard called Limekiln Dockyard, and is prominently positioned by the River Thames.
Dundee Wharf houses 140 luxury riverside apartments across blocks of varying height – 3-storeys, 7-storeys and 11-storeys. Over the years, various refurbishments have been undertaken to ensure that premium living space for all tenants continues to be provided.
Throughout its life span, the seven passenger lifts serving the 7-storey blocks have delivered a good service, however, issues relating to reliability and ride quality became apparent. This prompted the building’s management team to find a lift modernisation company who could resolve the lifts’ performance.
Titan Elevators were one of the selected lift companies participating in the competitive tendering process which took place during the COVID-19 lockdown period.
