Lift shaft installation

Just how is a concrete lift shaft installed?

Longley Concrete has demonstrated the ease by which a lift shaft can be installed through the production of a time lapse video which shows two, three-storey lift shafts being installed.

This project was the first stage of construction for a retirement home build and saw the two, three-storey lift shafts being installed in just one day.

Longley Concrete manufacture precast concrete lift shafts from its Ireland base and transport the lift shaft elements to site for quick construction.  The installation team are adept at managing lift shaft installation projects, making sure that the build program can remain on schedule.

The video shows the lift pit (which is coated in latex modified bitumen to stop water ingress), door openings, lift cap and lifting beam to aid with the installation of the lift car. The video also demonstrates the wavy tail anchor system, which enables easy lifting and fixing of the components.
