Terry Lifts wins lot on four-year Leeds City Council framework agreement
Terry Lifts has secured a four-year framework agreement with local authority Leeds City Council to supply specialist lifts for eligible residents.
Marking the second time that the Knutsford-based business has won the specialist lifts lot of the housing & non-housing framework, Terry Lifts said it was selected for its quality products and competitive rates.
According to the British lift manufacturer, fire protection also played an important role in the selection process.
Speaking on behalf of Leeds City Council, Chris Hughes, team leader (lift section), Leeds Building Services said: “Any company that tenders for work for Leeds City Council would have to work to current specifications and legislation so fire protection would be very important.”
The company’s Harmony home lift, for example, is compliant to BS 5900:2012 – maintaining 30-minute fire and smoke integrity between floors, whether it is parked upstairs or downstairs. Smoke or heat alarms ensure the lift performs correctly in case of activation.
Aside from lift supply and installation, Terry Lifts also provides Leeds City Council with a recycling service. Once an adaptation is no longer required, Terry Lifts decommission the lift and return it to the company factory in Cheshire. The product is then fully refurbished and prepared for reinstallation into another suitable property.
Hughes noted that the exercise saves Leeds City Council money which can then be used to fund any ongoing or future adaptations.
The council currently provides mobility adaptations to around 2500 properties.
“Terry Lifts continue to provide excellent service to Leeds City Council,” concluded Hughes.
“All installations are dealt with in a professional manner, from the initial enquiry through to the end-user. All work is completed to a very high standard and within an acceptable timeframe.”https://thiis.co.uk/terry-lifts-wins-lot-on-four-year-leeds-city-council-framework-agreement/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Terry-Lifts-Harmony.jpg?fit=900%2C766&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Terry-Lifts-Harmony.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomSupplier NewsTrade Newsframework agreement,Harmony,housing framework,Leeds City Council,lot,non-housing framework,Terry LiftsTerry Lifts has secured a four-year framework agreement with local authority Leeds City Council to supply specialist lifts for eligible residents.
