At Hin Chong, we pride ourselves on providing innovative solutions to enhance the functionality, safety, and aesthetics of lifts in various settings. Our recent project for the owner of a conservation shophouse exemplifies our commitment to delivering excellence in lift modernisation.
Our client approached us with a critical challenge - it was an old conservation shophouse that came installed with an outdated hydraulic lift that was over 25 years old. The lift was slow, prone to breakdowns, and its aging appearance negatively impacted tenant satisfaction. The situation reached a point where tenants were considering lease termination due to operational inconveniences and dissatisfaction.
In response to the challenges posed by the aging hydraulic lift, we proposed a comprehensive solution – a Full Lift Conversion from the obsolete hydraulic system to a state-of-the-art Traction Motor Room-less system. The benefits of this conversion included improved energy efficiency, enhanced ride comfort, faster travel speed, easier maintenance, elimination of oil leakage issues, and a visually appealing, modern lift design. The owner, recognizing the advantages, swiftly approved our Lift Conversion proposal.
Key Results and Outcomes
Our project objectives were clear:
- Greatly improve lift reliability, usability, safety, and user comfort.
- Replace the old, unattractive lift with a modern, aesthetically pleasing one.
- Enhance the shophouse's value to command higher rentals.
The outcomes achieved were remarkable:
- Successful completion of the Full Lift Conversion in just 6 weeks, meeting the client's tight schedule.
- Elimination of lift breakdown incidents and tenant complaints four months post-installation.
- The owner expressed satisfaction and even considered raising rents during the next renewal.
Our expertise and commitment to quality allowed us to transform a crisis into an opportunity for the owner of the conservation shophouse. The Full Lift Conversion not only addressed immediate concerns but also added long-term value to the property. At Hin Chong, we are proud to contribute to the seamless operation of our clients' facilities through innovative lift modernisation solutions.
