Ontario Tower

BALLYMORE PROPERTIES, ONTARIO TOWER, LONDON
A low profile, high speed hoist system developed UBS was commissioned for the construction of the new 115 metre, 29 storey Ontario Tower at New Providence Wharf in London’s East End.

Ballymore’s contracts manager Sean Gavin commented,

“For a prestigious development like the Ontario Tower we wanted to use the best system. We were aware that the UBS system had been commissioned for several of the major contracts in the City like Canary Wharf and the ‘Gherkin’ so it seemed sensible to use their experience in high rise construction. It’s a very effective system, but more importantly we got what we wanted, efficiency. All the input from UBS was up front and the project was well planned. We knew what was happening from day one, and although we are only half way through the contract, we were still delivering to the programme and the UBS high-speed hoists have been a contributory factor to this.”

Two high speed passenger and materials hoists each with a payload of 2800kg and an operating speed of 90 metres per minute were used and were arranged arounda common tower with a large side loading material hoist.
