Gartec scores at Barratt Homes' Hayes Stadium
Barratt Homes selected Gartec to install seven platform lifts at
their major new housing development at Hayes Stadium, West
London. Barratt were constructing a number of low-cost homes
within the 180 residence development, to be managed by Family
Mosaic Housing Association. Seven of these low cost homes
were designated for people with physical disabilities and therefore
wheelchair access was required to the first floor of the
The Prime 4000 lift was specified as it has been designed with
the home environment in mind; its compact footprint fitted well
within the limited space of a domestic setting and the sleek
Scandinavian design complemented the interior décor of the
homes. The Prime 4000 is also simple to maintain and operate,
with push button controls for ease of use.
As the lifts were not specified until close to the handover
deadline, the Gartec team worked to a tight schedule to ensure the
lifts were installed on time and to budget. The Gartec team
wrestled to overcome power supply issues on the building site, but
successfully met the demanding programme, with each lift still only
taking two days each to install.
Kerry Stanton from Gartec commented: "The Prime 4000 lift
was a perfect solution for Barratt Homes. Our knowledge of
this sector meant that the right lifts were specified and installed
promptly. The first residents have now moved in to their new
homes and the lifts have made a huge difference to their everyday
Gartec's comprehensive experience throughout the UK of
installing lifts in the home environment - in both social housing
schemes and private homes - constantly informs the design of their
platform lifts. A new range with enhanced features is due to
be launched in May 2012.
