Our Installation Process


We typically begin with a 15 minute minute phone consultation with a Project Manager to get a feel for your requirements. If it’s a simple project then we might move straight to the design stage. For more complex projects we will usually arrange for one of our project managers to meet you on site.


Regardless of the size of project, it’s important that we recommend the most appropriate equipment configuration for your space. We have over 25 years of design experience which helps ensure you get the best value for money.


Once we’re confident with the design we will send you a formal written proposal. Because this can be quite technical we usually arrange a phone call or in-person presentation to run through all of the details and answer any questions.


Once you choose Adlib as your installation company, we set a start date for your installation. This starts the planning process where we produce Risk Assessments, Method Statements and a Schedule of Works.


Each  building presents its own challenges. The on-site installation team is led by a project manager with previous experience working in your type of building. We are comfortable working alongside other contractors on large building sites.


Once the installation is complete, your project manager will commission the system and ensure that it meets or exceeds the original specification. At this stage we offer training on how to get the most from your new installation.
