OUR CLIENT


Since 2010 Acer’s focus has been on product research development and marketing and the temporary structure erected at the Olympics was part of its global strategy to promote their products and communicate the Acer Group promise - breaking the barriers between people and technology – to a global audience.

THE PROJECT


Acer required 2, 8 person Hydraulic passenger lifts for the Acer Olympic Pavilion - a temporary building erected for the Olympic Games by the Taiwanese technology giant - that could be assembled and disassembled easily. One lift was required to be 2 stop and the other 3 stop with both lifts transporting visitors between floors in their own supporting structure.

THE CHALLENGE - Temporary Structure


Temporary Structure - The passenger lift needed to be erected and disassembled easily within a whole structure and self-supported shaft.

THE CHALLENGE - Pit Depth


Pit Depth – Due to the temporary nature of the building there was no foundation for the lift.

THE SOLUTION - Temporary Structure


Temporary Structure – The whole lift was built on site at our German Manufacturing partner HIRO’s factory before being transported to the UK where it could be craned in to place and easily installed and uninstalled in one piece

THE SOLUTION - Pit Depth


Pit Depth – Due to the nature of the project and their being no pit available we applied for and were granted a derogation order. By utilising our bespoke HIRO model we are able to create an artificial pit area with the use of artificial pit prop technology enabling the guaranteed safety of any engineers working on the lift.

THE RESULTS


Our previous engineering experience in complex lift projects ensured that our team of expert engineers were able to install the lift in just 2 days. The lift was used by thousands of people throughout the time the building was up and then disassembled in just 2 days when the building was taken down.
