Our thanks and appreciation go out to Dan Zammar and the rest of the great crew at Access Elevator and Lifts Inc in Kansas City. Their submission of photos from the Indigo Hotel in Kansas City, MO has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for June 2018!
This ADA compliant lift is part of a renovation project for the Indigo Hotel in downtown Kansas, located in a historic 12-story tower originally constructed in the 1930’s.
For this project an Xpress 2 Indoor Inclined Lift was chosen to save as much usable floor space as possible and fit easily into the pre-existing stairway. This lift now enables accessible access between the main lobby and the lounge.
Did you know that custom RAL paint colors can be used to allow a lift to blend into its surroundings? This project is a perfect example of an accessibility application that does just that. The custom RAL color matches the wall perfectly to create the appearance of a wider staircase and provide an attractive and clean finish.
Our thanks and appreciation go out to Stewart Smith and the rest of the great crew at Genesis Elevator of Kennesaw, Georgia. Their submission of photos from the Seven Oaks Country Club in Alpharetta, GA has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for April, 2018.
Can you spot the Genesis Enclosure elevator? This project is a perfect example of an accessibility application that blends in with its environment. The champagne aluminum extrusions closely match the beige siding on the building providing an aesthetically pleasing installation.
The Seven Oaks Country Club offers community events, a fitness center and other opportunities for homeowners to socialize with other residents. The Genesis Enclosure Elevator is a great addition to the community center and it will provide a fully code-complaint accessibility solution.
Providing accessibility within a theater or lecture hall can be a challenge for even the most experienced accessibility contractors. Fortunately, the Garaventa GSL Artira represents a unique solution that can be made to fit over almost any set of stairs.
Designers at Douglas College in Coquitlam, BC were faced with this kind of challenge when looking to provide accessibility in a lecture theater. Garaventa was able to design an inclined platform lift solution that featured a drive box cabinet hidden behind a wall. This allows for the drive box to be located away from the pedestrian and lift traffic.
Congratulations to Don Sanchez, Barry Sherman and the rest of the great crew at Garaventa Lift in Port Moody, BC. Their installation of this GSL Artira inclined platform lift has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for May, 2017.
