Gracechurch Street

The first 4 car group machine roomless Hall Call Destination system installed in the UK.

Butler & Young Lift Consultants coordinated the design and selected an intelligent control system to provide a fast, efficient distribution for office personnel. Throughout peak times, the system can move traffic up to 36% more efficiently than standard fully collective control systems.

33 Gracechurch St presented various challenges for the lift system. The existing building had floor levels at varying heights. The resulting scheme provided a through car arrangement, using Kollmorgan Destination Control with BerchtenBreiter machine roomless equipment installed by Apex Lifts.

This major construction project has created an additional two floors which are now served by the lifts. Access from street level was originally by stairway and new lift entrances were installed to provide level access on the ground floor. The use of an MRL system allowed the 6th floor machine room area to now be utilised as office space.
