Lifts again... where's the logic?

Yesterday I was moving a load of stuff over to the QMC. As there was a large amount of heavy and separate items I had the cunning idea of borrowing a big tolley and then this would allow us to push the stuff all the way there. Instead of taking stuff to a car, driving around and then carrying it all upstairs. This is all made possible because the QMC footbridge now has a lift!

When we arrived at the lift the little floor 7 segment display looked like it was showing:


Shrug, we thought. Looks a bit bust... then the lift came to the lower level... and the display read:


WTF, we thought. Me make some comment along the lines of someones wired or programmed it up completly wrong!

We get in the lift... and all is sort of explained...

So, the display was showing an 'a' and an 'L'... but what's the reasoning in calling these floors this? Any one who does stuff in the QMC have any idea?
