Thank you to Phil Kean of the Phil Kean Design Group for this update on the progress of The New American Home 2017. Once again, we are thrilled to be able to showcase a Garaventa Home Elevator in this prestigious show home for the International Builders Show.
Congratulations to our friends down under at PR King & Sons. They have captured the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for May, 2016.
This 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.
The 2015 New American Home has been completed and was showcased in conjunction with the International Builders Show, recently held in Las Vegas. The home features some incredible cutting-edge technologies. Guests were allowed to book tours of the home while visiting the convention and these tours proved to be incredibly popular.
A Garaventa Home Elevator is showcased in The 2015 New American Home. It features an inline drive system, an 8 ft. tall cab, a powered cab gate and a mirror installed on the back wall.
A virtual website has been launched at www.newamericanhome2015.com . Click on the Garaventa Lift logo as it scrolls along the bottom of the page to see the elevator.
