Following the work which took place on two of the Owen Lifts last year, the remaining two lifts are also being refurbished to bring them up to standard.

During this refurbishment the two lifts with touchscreen panels will be in use.  For disabled users who are unable to use this system please contact Security on 0114 225 2000.

On completion of the refurbishment a new console system will be in place which will assign each user a lift based on the floor they select to reduce waiting times and provide reliable, quicker journeys, it will also feature a disabled user button which will provide audio assistance.

The work will be completed September 2013.

A video showing a demonstration of a similar system can be seen at:
