Project Details

  • Summary

    Our services were engaged to review the operational condition of the vertical transportation services following some major modification works to the installation. We identified some issues with the door operators that were not included in the previous refurbishment and made recommendations to ensure a suitable resolution.

  • Achievements

    Our report enabled the client to ensure rectification works were undertaken in order to reduce unnecessary wear and tear on components, prolong equipment life and improve operational performance.  


Focus FM was appointed by Workman to carry out a Survey at this attractive period building situated in a prominent position in Central Wimbledon. The lifts had recently been refurbished, but the car door operators had not been included for the four main passenger lifts.

Our work on this property involved performing a one off Survey, following the recent modification works, to provide a solution to the existing door operators.


A cost of £300k was the original estimate to replace all landing doors and operators to the four main passenger lifts. Focus FM was able to get correct information in accordance with the specification required and provide a more realistic cost of £7,000 per lift allowing for the original equipment to be upgraded and keeping the existing glass landing doors whilst maintaining legislative compliance at all times.

Focus FM also offers sound professional advice in relation to the reliability, obsolescence and life expectancy of any lift and escalator equipment.
