Platform Lift Company has installed and will maintain three different disabled lifts in the multi-million dollar upgrade of facilities at ABC TV and Radio headquarters throughout Queensland.

The ABC’s new Richard Kirk-designed Brisbane TV and radio headquarters, built in South Bank; the new two-story TV and radio studios and offices in the heart of Darwin; and the award-winning new ABC Tropical North building in Mackay feature Platform Lift Company’s disabled lifts.

“The CAMA C7 wheelchair stair lift, the new 2 metre Pollock step lift and the architect’s favourite design, the 1 metre Pollock step lift, were installed at the ABC TV and Radio Headquarters sites in Queensland,” said PLC’s Queensland spokesman Kent Phillips.

“The installations satisfied the Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 and the Disability Discrimination Act.

”All of these lifts are state of the art in design and fit well into modern buildings.”

Platform Lift Company is a one-stop solution for satisfying the legislation on disabled access, be it a new building, a renovation or modification to an existing building. Its relationship does not end at installation – its product care continues.


"Most building owners would have no idea of what is required of them or that they're potentially in breaking the law," Platform Lift Company managing director Clive Hammond said.


“Even building owners who are aware of their obligation still aren't sure what kind of accessibility options they need to put in place."

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) covers providing disabled access to buildings, including access to all offices, restaurants, public buildings, clubs and schools. Under the DDA, building owners must take reasonable steps to change practices, policies or procedures to make services available to disabled persons. This includes entry or access to premises.

Platform Lift Company is a major supplier, installer and maintainer of wheelchair disability access lifts and ramps in Australia. It’s headquarters is in Sydney and has outlets in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
