Terry Lifts has secured a four-year framework agreement with local authority, Leeds City Council to supply specialist lifts for eligible residents.
It is the second time that the Knutsford-based business has won the specialist lifts lot of the housing & non-housing framework.
Announcing the news, Terry Lifts says it was selected for its quality products and competitive rates with fire protection also playing a role in the selection process.
The company’s Harmony home lift, for example, is compliant to BS 5900:2012 – maintaining 30-minute fire and smoke integrity between floors, whether it is parked upstairs or downstairs.
Speaking on behalf of Leeds City Council, Chris Hughes, team leader (lift section), Leeds Building Services said: “Any company that tenders for work for Leeds City Council would have to work to current specifications and legislation so fire protection would be very important.”
Aside from lift supply and installation, Terry Lifts also provides Leeds City Council with a recycling service.
Once an adaptation is no longer required, Terry Lifts decommission the lift and return it to the company factory in Cheshire where it is then fully refurbished and prepared for reinstallation into another suitable property.
Hughes continued: “This exercise saves Leeds City Council money which can then be used to fund any ongoing or future adaptations.”
Concluding: “Terry Lifts continues to provide excellent service to Leeds City Council. All installations are dealt with in a professional manner, from the initial enquiry through to the end user. All work is completed to a very high standard and within an acceptable time frame.”
