Platform Lift Company recently completed the installation of a stylish Artico7000 lift in Melbourne Water's newly refurbished control room. This installation was part of the Victorian Government-owned business' commitment to provide a safe, healthy and enjoyable working environment.

Platform Lift Company is Australia's leading supplier, installer and maintainer of wheelchair disability access lifts, commercial elevators and residential lifts.

According to Platform Lift Company's Dave Galbin, Melbourne Water’s timeframes were tight but they were able to meet them. The state-of-the-art lift was necessary to meet the DDA standard. 

Graeme Innes, Deputy Disability Discrimination Commissioner explains the DDA law applies in all areas of public life, and specifically access to public premises. This means that premises and related facilities should not impede the use in any way by people with disabilities.

Melbourne Water is another addition to Platform Lift Company's high-profile clients including the Sydney Opera House, the Swarovski and Christian Dior stores in Sydney, the Reserve Bank of Australia, Hugo Boss in Sloane Square, London, the YAS Island Marina Ferrari F1 Circuit in Abu Dhabi and more than 40 sites associated with the prestigious Hilton Hotel group.

Platform Lift Company operates a network of offices throughout Australia, supplying, installing and maintaining wheelchair disability access lifts, commercial elevators and residential lifts. 

Platform Lift Company also provides a one-year warranty including two service visits as standard and offers continuing service contracts thereafter.
