Integrated Lift Solutions were pleased to undertake some complex enabling works for lift renewals at Dale House.
Dale house is located in the heart of Manchester’s Northern quarter, near to the newly regenerated Piccadilly basin. The building is grade II listed and in 2017 underwent a refurbishment by the new owners which will retain many of its original features as well as providing contemporary style studio offices. Integrated Lift Solutions were asked to undertake some complex enabling works for lift renewals at Dale House. Due to nature of some works on a large live site in a major city centre, some weekend work was included to minimise disruption.
