Working with Tandridge District Council, LECS UK managed the deliver of the VT element of Caterham and North Tandridge Regeneration programme.
In 2019, as part of this regeneration programme the council acquired Quadrant House – a large 115m long, 1960s modernist office building with ground floor retail units and 39,100 square feet of office space above, spanning five storeys – from basement level to a roof terrace on the third floor
Phase 2 works, that included general accessibility and the replacement of the lift, started and completed in the summer of 2022, with LECS UK as the consulting lift engineers.
Lee Dean, consulting engineer and director of LECS UK worked closely with the council and the design team to modernise the vertical transport facilities in Quadrant House. Elan Lifts, who specialise in bespoke installations, was the contactor.
Lee Dean said: “One of the key achievements on this project was increasing the size of the existing lifts, to facilitate the traffic requirements of the newly refurbished building. The design and finish of the lifts also achieved the architects design aspirations.
Quadrant House officially reopened on October 6, 2022
