Congratulations to the fine folks at Mobility Concepts of Fife, Washington. Their submission of photos from Microsoft in Redmond, Washington has earned the the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for February, 2018.
Microsoft has rigged up three high tech treehouses for employees to work and meet in up in Redmond’s Pacific Northwest Douglas firs. The elaborate meeting rooms were built by Pete Nelson, host of the TV show Treehouse Masters.
The treehouses are a part of Microsoft’s “outdoor districts” which are connected to buildings around its Redmond campus. The company built the treehouses after a recent employee survey found many workers would like to work outdoors more if they could. A Garaventa, Genesis, VPL, was included in the design allowing for two of the three treehouses to be accessible to all employees.
The lifts are two-stop Garaventa Genesis vertical platform lifts with factory-
made enclosures. The enclosures are enclosed on top with shed-style sloping roofs and have painted steel panel walls. Walls are also available with clear or bronze plexiglas or laminated safety glass.
