ILECS Lift & Escalator Consultants

With over 30 years’ experience in providing lift consultancy services to our clients, ILECS are well placed to assist a variety of organisations and sectors with their lift-related queries. The ILECS team support our clients by providing clarity and industry-insight on any lift or escalator problems and find the best solution for them by offering neutral and considered advice.

Our experienced team of lift consultants, account managers and operations staff, many of which have been working in the industry for a decade or two themselves, enable ILECS to deliver an exceptionally high standard of service to our clients. Our growing teams also provide us with an opportunity to expand our reach across the UK to clients such as NHS Foundation Trusts, councils, universities, care homes, as well as commercial and residential property portfolios and large venues.
As lift and escalator consultants, we’re known for producing truly independent reports, providing professional project management, writing bespoke maintenance contracts, and our specialist lift portfolio management service, OneVision.

Previous experience has seen the ILECS team conduct work for an NHS Foundation Trust, assisting with the resolution of lift issues within its portfolio of 80 lifts across two hospitals. To resolve the problems faced, the team improved the maintenance coverage to allow for better response times from contractors, gained control of the lift portfolio using ILECS’ comprehensive lift portfolio management service OneVision, and established a lift modernisation plan. Using OneVision, the client’s lift portfolio is regularly monitored by industry experts at ILECS. This includes reviewing quotations for validity and fairness, processing LOLER reports as well as service and callout records.

Carl Snell, Director at ILECS and a key member of the team working with the NHS Foundation Trust said, “We’re happy to have helped our client turn around their lift portfolio and make significant savings going forward. We take our professional position within hospitals very seriously and our teams work hard to reduce any possible disruptions while undertaking work on site.”
Phil Robson, Head of Capital Projects at Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust said, “ILECS have provided lift consultancy services to Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust for some time, and we have always been very satisfied with their service delivery, expertise, and guidance with regards to the management of lifts within our buildings. We have always found ILECS to be professional, responsive, honest, and helpful in the delivery of their services which were found to be provided at a reasonable cost. We are happy to recommend ILECS.”

"Having a company like ILECS on hand, who are specialists in their field and impartial, has not only allowed us to pass over this area of our role, but has given us more clarity on what essentially is required towards health and safety and management of lifts. It's reassuring to know that there is a company that does not put profit over service." – Russell Kellet, Property Manager.
