Passenger lift installed in River Island flagship store

Axess 2 install a new 8 person scenic passenger lift as part of the £5m store refurbishment on Church St, Liverpool.

The lift services all the existing trading floors as well as the new basement floor and store room facilities.

Construction of the lift project started back in April when our engineering team arrived on site and installed the bespoke steel lift structure. Contractors then integrated our structure into their staircase framework and wall assembly, which was later tiled to match the store decor and theme. Our engineers returned to site and completed the installation.

The lift featured a large modern cabin with glass viewing windows positioned at each side and stainless steel and glass centre opening doors completed the contemporary look. Situated and fixed around the lift shaft in the basement was a bespoke fire protection glass screen system.
