Alimak Service is uniquely placed to offer specialised refurbishment solutions and maintenance services for façade access solutions for Manntech, one of the leading providers in façade access solutions. The experienced team at Alimak Service were able to deliver a comprehensive service and support solution including genuine spare parts for the highly engineered façade access systems at International Place, Boston.
The two-tower complex reaches 180 metres and has become a prominent icon on the Boston city skyline since its completion in 1987. After over three decades of maintaining the building, technology has inevitably developed and in order to protect this landmark of the city’s financial district for years to come, various providers were invited to evaluate and bid on a project to refurbish the electrical systems for the towers’ two existing Manntech building maintenance units.
As the service provider for Manntech’s products as part of the Alimak Group of companies who lead the wayin vertical access, Alimak Service was the natural choice to carry out the refurbishment solution. The comprehensive refurbishment project covered all electrical systems including the replacement of all components and platform controls on both BMUs across the two towers. All electrical components were also modernised with the benefit of Verta software technology which is world-renowned as a cutting-edge, data-driven operations tool. In addition to the electrical modifications, the refurbishment project also contributed to safer working practices with the replacement of all wire ropes and extensive test drops.
Beyond the refurbishment and modification work, the stakeholders also took advantage of the benefits provided by an ongoing maintenance agreement with Alimak Service. Ensuring they will continue to benefit from the team’s experience and expertise through a comprehensive range of service and support solutions designed to ensure their renewed building maintenance unit continues to function at optimum capacity long into the future.
