Our thanks and appreciation go out to Jason Retallick, Jamie Savage and the rest of the great crew at Garaventa Lift, BC. Their submission of photos from the Elvoron residential elevator at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in Vancouver, BC has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for August, 2018.

IMG_0759 - editPremium stainless 3-speed automatic sliding doors are a popular choice since they are ultimate in convenience and the most modern choice. Also notice how the cabin flooring is consistent throughout the home. This allows for the elevator to blend in with the environment. In addition, the walnut veneer cabin walls create a mid-century modern appearance, a design feature that is also consistent throughout the home.

The PNE is a non-profit organization, which raises revenue through the Prize Home Lottery. Community members can purchase tickets in hopes to win a beautiful home, such as this one. The money raised supports agriculture, arts, community and local programs.

This Elvoron home elevator has an inline drive system, a premium control panel with a built-in telephone, and hallway call stations with digital floor displays. These features help create the safest, most convenient and modern application.

Check out this Virtual tour of the PNE Prize Home. Are you able to find the elevator?

Australian LULA Elevator Captures May POM

Limited use limited application elevator has glass doors

LULA Elevator with Glass Doors

ThisLimited use limited application elevator with glass doors is an installation of an Elvoron LULA limited use limited application elevator, made by Garaventa Lift and installed by P.R. King & Sons. The application showcases the optional glass 2-speed sliding doors.

The building is the Eileen O’Connor Catholic College in Lewisham, Australia.

Eileen Rosaline O’Connor was an Australian Nun, who devoted her life in service to those less fortunate. In 1913, she founded the Society of Our Lady’s Nurses for the Poor from the bedroom of her home in Coogee.

Remarkably, she sustained a serious back injury when she was only three years old, resulting in a lifelong disability and constant pain. She was only 28 years old when she died. She may not have lived a long lifetime, but her example continues to inspire others today. She is considered a counted Servant of God, meaning that she is under consideration by the Catholic Church for possible canonization into sainthood.

The institution bearing her name has as one of its aims, “to provide a stimulating education designed to develop the whole student that enriches them socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, creatively, morally and spiritually.”  We are proud that the people in charge of the college chose Garaventa Lift and PR King & Sons to provide their new LULA Elevator.
