Paulus Crescent, Christchurch

 

Problem: For a residential project, this lift was very technical - bordering on the complexity of a commercial lift. As well as being a hill site, the lift was complicated by the technicality of the house structure; it’s a unique property with huge, extremely heavy foundations supporting a large concrete dome/arch above.

 

Solution: The house is 350m2, but only part of it was out of level. Using hydraulic mechanical jacking, House Lifters lifted and levelled the front 130m2 section.

 

“Being in the building industry, I knew what could go wrong if I didn’t choose the right company for the job. When Rod saw the house and looked at the plans, he was confident about what needed to be done, and enthusiastic about the challenge. But the other contractors who I got quotes from, either I could tell that because the lift was so complex, they didn’t want to do it (and their price reflected that)… Or their methodology of how they were going to do it, didn’t give me confidence. The lift went well and House Lifters were very efficient at providing information and documentation to the Engineer. The ‘close-out’ paperwork was sent quickly too.”
