Congratulations to Canwest Elevator & Lifts for their installation of a large Artira in an open core stairway at the corporate headquarters of Zedi, Inc., a large company specializing in the manufacturing of diagnostic equipment for the Oil and Gas Industry.
This project was especially challenging, as the stair treads were not strong enough to support the lift and the stringers were inset. The solution was to provide custom tread supports attached to the stringer, directly underneath each support tower.
The folks at Zedi were not required to install a lift to comply with code. Nor did they do this to provide access for a specific employee. Nobody that currently works there is a wheelchair user. They installed the lift because they thought making their entire office accessible was the right thing to do. Good call!
