We’re delighted to announce that the lift installation project at the Odeon Luxe, Birmingham, undertaken by VM Elevators, was successfully completed in May 2023, revolutionising convenience and accessibility within the building.


An upcoming lift installation by VM Elevators at Odeon, Birmingham is set to bring a new level of convenience and accessibility to the building. The installation will begin in February 2023 and involve a number of key components and processes to ensure a smooth and efficient operation of the lift.

The first step in the process will be to secure the site and conduct a site induction and safety assessment to ensure the safety of all workers and the building’s occupants. Equipment will be offloaded and stored on site, and hoardings will be erected to protect the surrounding areas.

The existing car and landing entrances and door operators will be removed, and new landing entrance frame support angles will be installed and plumbed. The car front and rear will be cut back, and new car entrances and door operators will be installed. The shaft and pit will be degreased, cleaned, and painted, and shaft lighting will be installed.

The hydraulic system will be depressurized, and the ram will be overhauled and a new tank and pump unit with a bund tank will be installed. A new controller including shaft switchgear, car top, and pit engineers control box will be installed, and the entire system will be rewired, reusing existing conduit and trunking where possible, including trailing flexes.

The lift car front returns, COP and reline of the lift car will be installed and painted. The motor room walls and floor will be painted as well. Once all the components are in place, the lift will undergo testing, disengaging, commissioning and handover to ensure that it is in full working order and ready to use.
