Platform lift for landmark building

The Halston Aparthotel in Carlisle is a striking fixture on Carlisle’s tourism and dining scene, reviving an iconic city centre building, the Old Post Office, in the process. At the heart of this great building is the main staircase wrapping around a stairwell climbing 13 metres.

Accessibility to all floors was achieved by the installation of an Optimum 100 Platform Lift which now takes visitors on a scenic expedition around the century old staircase, as every side of the lift structure is fully glazed.
