Santander has selected Leeds as the location for its first UK ‘Work Café’ and Axess 2 were approached to provide a solution to enable wheelchair users to access all the facilities at the branch.
Our Easylift was selected as the most suitable product for the application. Its clean straight lines, smooth-finish surfaces and flexible design, meant it could be integrated seamlessly into its surroundings.
With the lift having a maximum lifting height of 1250mm, the required 745mm change in level was no problem. The lift was supplied in RAL9005 (Black) to match the existing hand rails and metalwork and finished off with the clients own timber flooring to complete the seamless look.
The café, located at Park Row, will bring back into use a branch which was previously closed at the end of June last year. The Work Café concept was initially developed by Santander in Chile and has been rolled out to Europe and South America
Alongside banking facilities, it will offer free co-working spaces and meeting rooms. The bank has partnered with Taylor St Coffee on the opening.
With its growing reputation as an innovative city attracting strong digital talent and as one of the largest financial hubs outside of London, Leeds is the perfect place for the new Work Café. The Work Café is a whole new banking experience, acting as a vibrant hub for local businesses and the local community
