A triplex of customised Stannah lifts are delivering vital office access and goods movement in the Record Store, an Art Deco, former record-pressing factory and part of the £250m regeneration of The Old Vinyl Factory, erstwhile home of record label EMI, located in Hayes, West London.
The 21-person passenger/goods lift and two 13-person passenger-only lifts deliver easy people-access and movement of supplies between six floors (21.75m) in this landmark building recently reimagined into 84,705 sq. ft of high-end office space.
The triplex operates in wall-mounted shafts in the spacious lift lobby, an integral part of the compact, central core. Their design supports an efficient blueprint that also minimises the structural impact on the building.
This core also doubles as a fire-fighting shaft, comprising a firefighting stair, mechanically ventilated firefighting lobby and a firefighting lift – one of the 13-person passenger lifts.
The 1600kg, heavy duty passenger/goods lift also offers the added benefit of a VIP button for priority usage, and low-level bump rails for added protection when shifting awkward/heavy trolley-loads.
An important design feature is the custom graphics that link past and present to visually illustrate the building’s musical pedigree.
The triplex also ensures that the premises’ owners comply with the Equality Act 2010, with the added benefit of six lift maintenance visits in the first year – part of a lift-servicing plan delivered by London and the South East (Dartford) branch of Stannah Lift Services, a nationwide network providing 24/7, year-round lift servicing and support.
