thyssenkrupp were awarded the contract for the replacement of two escalators at the Kirkgate Shopping Centre in Bradford. Being a key entrance into the building, Centre Management required thyssenkrupp to deliver a quick programme of works to avoid lengthy disruption and also use this downtime to enhance the entrance for customers.
In addition to renewing tiling, centre managers included a number of our escalator lighting options, which will be sure to encourage the public through the doors, especially during the dark evenings.
The two escalators being replaced were also provided by thyssenkrupp and are a testament to their world leading technology having been installed some 42 years ago in 1975. thyssenkrupp are confident the replacement velino escalators will continue to serve the centre as before for many more years to come.
Working alongside their approved installers and building works subcontractors thyssenkrupp promoted a single section installation of both escalators, which was an achievement for all involved given the confined working area. An ambitious programme was achieved to support the centre’s annual Christmas Reindeer Parade held shortly after handover. thyssenkrupp were pleased to be trusted to meet this deadline and the opportunity to support the ongoing customer satisfaction of building users and management team.
