Queens University Belfast

Queens University, Belfast

Founded by Queen Victoria in 1849, Queens University opened its doors to just 90 students when it would have been hard to envisage the elevation to one of the UK's most respected red brick Universities.

Today, there are over 24,000 students with over 300 buildings across the estate.

SVM Associates have been appointed as framework lift consultants since 2003. Since then we have worked closely with the estate's team; improving disability access, carrying out lifecycle replacement, specifying and providing technical advice on new lifts in new developments and assisting estate management with technical audits and advice. We have been commissioned to carry out:

  • 13 traditional modernisations - many in listed buildings
  • 12 new lift installations in new buildings and within existing buildings
  • 6 platforms and inclined access installations

We have also been commissioned to assist the estates team beyond managing lifts, including:

  • Specifying and procuring a new FM contract for 'hard' services in the student's accommodation estate
  • Defining and updating permit to work procedures for key plant-rooms
