A LIFT company has pulled off a dramatic achievement by being hired to work at the National Theatre.

Access Lifts, of Poole, landed the job at the same time as it celebrated receiving Achilles Building Confidence Accreditation.

The accreditation means the company has joined a select group of businesses providing high quality lifts and access equipment.

Access Lifts was awarded a contract by Lend Lease to install a lift at the main foyer of London’s National Theatre. By obtaining the Achilles accreditation, Access Lifts was able to fulfil all the contractor’s specialist requirements and will be installing the lift this summer.

Managing director Rob Edwards said: “It was a very comprehensive assessment; we had to provide in depth knowledge about all of our policies, culminating in a thorough interview between the two teams.

“This hard work proves Access Lifts can now compete at the very top level across the UK. We are currently working with a number of prominent organisations from the Palace of Westminster to St Paul's Cathedral.”

The company was involved in the London 2012 Olympic Games and installed a specialist lift aboard the Queen’s Royal Barge, the Gloriana, for the Royal Jubilee Pageant.
