Lifts in historic buildings

KEP lifts is a leading company within the UK for installing platform lifts in historic buildings. 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. For more information on Open aspect Platform lifts - please visit our platform lifts page.


Gloucester cathedral - Gloucester

Originating from 678 or 679 Gloucester cathedral has stood proud over the city for many years. This historic and impressive building now houses two new mylyft open platform lifts.


Boxgrove priory - Chichester

Located just east of Chichester is a stunning church dating back to the early twelfth century. KEP lifts installed a mylyft platform in the churches entrance - providing new disabled access to all of its visitors. As with any historic building - the design of this lift has been carefully considered to compliment and not take away from the building itself. The churches painted ceilings, surrounding ruins and local landscape makes this church a must see in the eyes of us all here at KEP Lifts.
