Our Story

With an Approved Lift Consultants audit, you receive a checklist which provides insight on the current state of your lifts or escalators in comparison with the contractual obligations of the list company. This is particularly useful after a handover of new and modernised lifts or escalators from the main contractor or developer as we conduct a detailed inspection of each point in the contract.

Lift and escalator maintenance must be conducted as per local laws and international standards. To ensure this golden standard is met, our auditors will review the equipment and verify whether the obligated maintenance was safely carried out. Rest assured that an independent audit’s result will reveal the truth.

Varsha and Kirit Kumar had just graduated with business degrees but with Singapore facing the height of global recession, the job market was very bleak. The duo identified a niche and began providing specialised restoration services to businesses and corporates who had suffered losses due to fire, explosion or flood inundation.

Kirit teamed up with Yap Kok Haw, a highly acclaimed restoration specialist, to further expand the restoration offerings. Soon after, the head office was moved to Malaysia to cut costs and pass on the savings, especially to the international clientele.

With the addition of John Horswell to the team, AGI expanded to include fire & explosion investigation, engineering loss investigation, lift and escalator audit, and motor vehicle accident investigation and reconstructions to its repertoire. The team grew with civil, electrical, electronic, marine, mechanical engineers, forensic scientists, lift inspectors and auditors among others coming onboard to provide their expertise.

We identified that a gap exists between the lift companies, building owners and the lift users. To ensure that optimal services is being provided to each of these parties, a ‘Check and Balance’ was required. That is where the Approved Lift Consultants come in.
