8 Car Destination Control at Canary Wharf

Guideline Lift Services Ltd was established in 1972 and is now one of the leading independent lift companies in the United Kingdom, specialising in the modernisation, maintenance and repair of all types of lifts, together with the installation of new lifts.

We successfully tendered for the replacement of a conventional 8 car group supervisory based call management system, with a Hall Call Destination system, together with the maintenance of all lifts within the building against formidable opposition, including major multi-national companies. The client who is an established Financial Services Global Leader within the prestigious area of Canary Wharf, has had previous world wide experience of Hall Call Destination, and required a smooth transition from system to system combining high performance with a flexible solution.

The specification written by Principle Designer and Lift Consultant Les Oliphant of O&M Lift Consultancy Services Ltd, required the new system to meet future traffic demands due to the diversity and increase in the building population, together with the isolation of floors 7&8 to create a new tenant demise, with the minimum of disruption to the building occupiers.

During the tender process, we selected Thames Valley Controls Ltd as our preferred supplier, utilizing their Ethos Navigator Hall Call Destination System. The product had successfully been used in over ten similar installations previously. Knowing especially that they had previous experience of an 8 car Hall Call Destination Group, including a three year warranty, together with the support they would provide during the tender, installation and subsequent maintenance period were all factors in our selection.
