Horsham – West Sussex

With a private housing development in close proximity to the train station where space was at a premium, the client came to Ideal Lifts for one of our industry leading compact designs.  This 4-storey building includes a concrete podium and underground carpark with a timber framed building above which accommodates 30 one, two and three bedroom apartments and duplex homes.

Assisting the client in optimising the available space Ideal Lifts installed one of the smallest motor room less traction drive 8-person passenger lifts available on the market, with energy efficient lighting and a durable finish.
