Congratulations to Mitsubishi Electric de Colombia, also know as Melco. Their installation at the Centro Comercial Unicentro Mall in Bogata has earned them the Project of the Month for November, 2014.

A tower-mounted Xpress II allows for access to a cinema over a bright, colorful set of stairs with a mirrored adjacent wall and graphics painted on the stairs.

There are two lifts in this project. A Genesis Enclosure is also installed in the cinema lobby to provide access to a second seating level.

Installation for Nobel Winner Named Garaventa Lift Installation of the Month for August

Nobel Prize Winner Gabriel Garcia Marquesz

Nobel Prize Winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Earlier this year, we lost a great Colombian citizen, Gabriel José de la Concordia García Márquez. “Gabo”, as he was affectionately known, was a novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter and journalist. Considered one of the most significant authors of the 20th century, he was awarded the 1972 Neustadt International Prize for Literature and the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature. On his death in April 2014, Juan Manuel Santos, the President of Colombia, described him as “the greatest Colombian who ever lived”. – wikipedia

Unfortunately, Mr. Márquez never had the opportunity to use the brand-new Garaventa Home Elevator installed at his residence in Cartagena. This project was completed after his passing.

The elevator features an aluminum and glass cab with full vision panels in the cab gates and full glass entrance doors. This clean, modern look is becoming more and more popular, and this installation has been named the Garaventa Lift Installation of the Month for August, 2014. Congratulations to the team at  Mitsubishi Electric de Colombia (Melco de Colombia)!

En la ciudad de la eterna primavera


En la ciudad de la eterna primavera, Medellín, tenemos otro ejemplo de creatividad y belleza en una instalación de un Garaventa Genesis Enclosure. Ubicado en una tienda de ropa para niños, brindando accesibilidad a la segunda planta, los diseñadores de la tienda mostraron que nuestros equipos no son solo dispositivos industriales, para destacar la importancia de accesibilidad para todos. Imaginamos que la tienda va a recibir muchos comentarios positivos y mucho uso de su nuevo equipo. Felicitaciones a Melco de Colombia; que buen trabajo desde la primera consulta hasta el final.

Garaventa Lift es el líder mundial en fabricación, distribución, instalación y servicio de ascensores residenciales, salva escaleras, sillas de evacuación, y ascensores para perssonas discapacitadas.
