Mountjoy was awarded a project by Capita / Southampton City Council in February 2016 for the removal of an old lift and installation of a new external lift at Manston Court social housing block.
Manston Court is a three floor residential supported housing block in the Lordshill area of Southampton. The construction works started in October 2016 and are due to run until May 2017.
Time to make our first impressions on the project and set up where our construction team will be based during the works.
The site required the strip out of windows and doors and tiling so that we can start our works.
Digging for the new access road has begun and our team have been fitting steels to the new openings
The scaffolding is now at first floor level to provide access for the lift lobby.
The first fix electrical and ducting installations for the lift are both underway.
The rendering is being carried out to the exterior of the lift shaft.
The lift lobbies are nearing completion.
Now the lift has been commissioned and the final electrical works have been completed, the last touch ups are in progress and the old lift can be decommissioned.
The lift is now being fully used by residents, the old lift has been decommissioned and the access road has finished being landscaped.
