“The VT Studio offers expert and invaluable support throughout the build and installation stages of a contract, keeping it compliant, on time and on budget.”
Manufacture, build and Installation
Once the VT contractor is appointed their own, often critical,design process will begin. This is an important time and the VT Studio will proactively ensure that their design solution accurately reflects the contract documents and will offer experienced advice where required.
At this time we also work closely with the architect and client to ensure the appearance and quality of the end product fulfils their detailed requirements and is fully compliant with all relevant safety, fire and access codes.
We have extensive experience of working with vertical transportation suppliers and installers. Once the lift and escalator contractor has started on site we are available to attend regular progress meetings with the main contractor and design team. We will conduct installation reviews during the construction phase to ensure that work is progressing in accordance with the contract documents and in conformity with the agreed design.
We are able to visit the subcontractor’s works, in the company of main contractor and architect’s personnel if required, for the purposes of reviewing designs and checking workmanship and compliance of products with the contract documents. We also undertake quality assurance assessments of manufacturing facilities as they continue to be built in new areas all the time.
A finger on the pulse…
The team at the VT Studio will proactively monitor progress throughout the construction phase, and ensure that the main contractor is kept fully informed throughout via written progress reports.
We contribute advice, assistance and problem solving skills to ensure the process happens as it should and endeavour to prevent the unforeseen becoming a problem, helping to keep things on time and to budget. In the event of live issues or delays incurred by the vertical transportation subcontractor we do more than just report it, we offer solutions.
