The Department of Estates maintains and repairs the lifts on campus. There are 44 lifts in different buildings on the Claverton site and many of them have been in service for more than thirty years. In addition, there also lifts in the off-site residences.
The University spends in excess of £100,000 per annum maintaining and repairing lifts. This is a considerable sum of money.
It is obviously very inconvenient for building occupiers when lifts are out of action and the Department of Estates' web pages frequently carry notifications of this nature. In addition to periods of maintenance, lifts are regularly out of action because they are broken - sometimes due to failure of a part but sometimes due to mis-use and/or vandalism.
At the end of this section beneath the notifications, is a table listing all the lifts on campus, together with the main reasons why a lift may be out of action. We proposed to regularly update and publish the statistics shown below because we believe they make interesting reading.
Please see the programme of minor and DDA works being carried out in 2012.
The table below will be populated once a month with statistics about the number of lifts that have been out of action.
The description of possible problems is largely self-explanatory but 'Mis-use' refers to problems which occur when, for example, a lift is over-loaded or the call buttons are pressed multiple times, confusing the machinery. Vandalism is when deliberate damage occurs.
