To ensure delivery of the Project on time, within budget and without compromise to quality, MTE undertook proper planning and developed a project specific methodology towards efficient delivery of this project. This involved proper resource leveling, ensuring availability of funds from the Company’s reserves to kick-start the project and preparing an informed cash-flow for the Client. As part of the planning, MTE engaged the manufacturer, visited and inspected various factories where different lift components are obtained by the manufacturer, conducted quality checks, inspected the manufacturing plant and processes and eventually confirmed that the manufacturer conformed to all our requirements as per the specifications provided by the Client.
The following activities were carried out during decommissioning:
There are five (5) motor rooms for lifts at the SAPS site and the components in these motor rooms had to be removed to make way for the new components that are compatible to the new lifts to be installed. All lift distribution boards (DB’s) also found in the motor room had to be upgraded. The following were completed in the upgrade of the lift distribution boards:
The equipment was delivered to suit the storage space available on site and to also follow the work process that would be followed. The lift was then built and then commissioned on low speed. The landing doors, landing buttons, stainless steel finishing at all landing doors including new digital indicators were installed while was at low speed.
