5 Step Elevator Removal Process

Your journey begins with your initial contact, where we gather essential project details and start discussing client requirements and what is important for their successful project

We conduct an in-depth site inspection to understand the specifics of your project. Looking at site conditions, building access, storage, shaft details, motor room access, the path to exit for removing the existing equipment, lobby finishes then running over the project scope with the client.

Receive a tailored quote within 24 hours, outlining the Scope of work, Removal method, Safe Work Method Statements(SWMS) and project program. Once sent our teams will jump on a call and run over line by line the action plan and scope provided. We will also provide options should the project require at alternative scope. eg Retaining Frames and Full Ripout/Building Works

With the acceptance of our quote, we will start the planning process, sending over SWMS, Insurances and start any inductions/company onboarding process. This is also where we may arrange further onsite meetings to discuss High risk works, isolations, Client requirements and potenial project hazards that could arrise

The final stage is to mobilise a specialised team to commence the removal process. Site establishment, floor protection, hotwork permits, isolations, pre start meetings and checks all Prior to getting in the shaft there has been alot of preparation, planning and now the Team execute the elevator removal, adhering to stringent safety protocols, followed by thorough site clean-up and preparation. All redundation lift material to be removed from site and recycled.

Throughout the process we will create a dedicated communciation channel between the project teams to ensure daily coms, updates and photos and provided across the team. “Good, Bad or Ugly” open and honest progress on the project nearly always leads to the next team getting onsite earlier than expected.

Lift Companies

The Specialist Team within your Team

Working with Lift companies across Australia for the past 13+ years removing low-rise to sky-rise lifts.

Since we specialise in Ripouts – all we know and understand is how to work with the Installation, Client, and Project teams to deliver a successful project. Unlike ripout/install crews who generalise – all our gear, methods, and removal process are geared towards doing the best job we can for the next team to get in and out safely.

With this in mind, we never have 2 crew onsite. Usually, 3-5 to ensure the teams in the shaft are supported on the landing, load out, and can swap in and out of the shaft for fatigue management. This also gives the team an edge.

Prior planning and walkthroughs with the client/project team ensure we are all on the same page. With 13+ years we have come across most , if not all the lifts and situations. We also have 4 team members who have been with us from day 1 this gives us tremendous confidence going into even the most tricky of projects while understanding there are always hazards present and to stay alert for any changes onsite.

Being industry training and inducted on most, if not all the lift companies’ online Portals with all the supporting documents built up for more than a decade.
