Construction & Engineering Awards 2018

2018 Construction & Engineering Awards Build 41 ith over 18 years’ experience providing first-class lift servicing and maintenance, Direct Lift Co works hard to support a range of clients from across the public and private sectors including councils, universities, food, retail the NHS, and entertainment providers. Dave provides us with an insight into how his firm works to ensure that every client receives the support they need, an approach which has led his firm to enjoy regular growth over the years. “As part of our commitment to ensuring excellence for every client, we ensure they are informed from the very start of the process about what they need, and that equipment is ordered in advance to ensure continuity throughout the job. Communication, planning and job management are the three key areas to which Direct Lift Co pride themselves in and communication with the client from start to finish is always paramount. “This is evidenced by our success rate, and our increasing client base. Welcoming new clients is always a proud moment for all the staff here at Direct Lift, and it represents the frustration of all the hard work we put into our company and its reputation. Among our recent success stories is our work modernising a lift in a council block. During the project it became apparent that the existing control gear which was to remain could fail in a very short period of time, our findings were presented to the client, and following a delay by them a decision was made to have the equipment replaced. This was organised during the refurbishment and extra equipment ordered which resulted in a short delay in completion. Had my staff not notified the client this could have resulted in the lift being out of action at a later date for approximately six weeks.” Ultimately, Direct Lift’s success has been achieved thanks to its committed team of dedicated staff, and going forward David foresees even greater success for his team and company, as he is honoured to conclude. “Going forward, the future for Direct Lift Co looks very good as we continue to grow at a steady pace increasing our client portfolio thanks to our reputation for excellence, which would not be possible without our team.” Lift Maintenance Engineers of the Year 2018 - UK Direct Lift Company are a lift maintenance and repair company specialising in servicing, repairs, 24-hour emergency breakdown cover, modernisations and installations.
