KEP Lifts have worked in some of the most iconic buildings across the UK - many of which are of historic and cultural importance. Below are just but a few examples of lifts installed within a historic buildings in 2018.


Fordwich Town Hall - Fordwich, Kent

Fordwich - Britain's smallest town. In our minds also one of the most picturesque. The town hall is the smallest and oldest still in use to this day. Built in 1544 during the reign of Henry VIII this building has survived and has now for the first time been made accessible to disabled visitors. KEP Lifts carried out an installation of a mylyft scissor platform lift to provide disabled external access to the town hall. Open aspect platform lifts are an ideal solution to providing safe and reliable access from distances of several steps to several metres.
