Fort Cambridge awards €2.4 million tender for lifts

The tender for the installation of twenty three lifts, in ten different blocks of the €180 million Fort Cambridge residential project, has been awarded to Mekanika Ltd suppliers of Kone Lifts. The tender, worth over €2.4 million, will see Mekanika installing two lifts in nine of the blocks, three in the tenth block and another two in the common areas. Currently this is one of the largest lift tenders on the island.
All lifts at Fort Cambridge will have a luxurious finish with a stainless steel cabin and mirrored glass on the interior. In an effort to facilitate loading of goods and furniture one of the lifts in each block will have a larger cabin and bigger loading capacity.
Commenting on the award of this tender Company Chairman, George Muscat said: “In selecting our preferred supplier we have spared no efforts to ensure that the project is equipped with one of the best lift brands in the market. Work on the first floor apartments of the project is currently moving at a very fast rate over the coming weeks the workforce on site is expected to increase to about 160 employees. Works are on schedule and are expected to be completed by 2011.”
Fort Cambridge is a 341 freehold residential project situated in Tigne, Sliema. The apartments, which will be completed simultaneously, will only cover 17 per cent of the area. The rest of the footprint will be allocated to landscaped gardens, open spaces and a private swimming pool. The outer perimeter walls will be insulated to ensure energy efficiency and high quality aluminium frames with double glazing will be used for the apertures. All apartments will boast of a water-cooled air-conditioning system, which although will involve a considerable investment will lead to significant energy savings for property owners. A reservoir has also been constructed underneath to ensure that rain water is collected and used for irrigation of the landscaped gardens.
