The 2015 NAHB International Builders Show is only a couple of weeks away and the finishing touches are underway on the spectacular showpiece, The New American Home. The construction process is documented on this page: http://www.tnah.com/showpage_details.aspx?showPageID=26422
Angelo Sahagun shows off his work area to Peter Rice, an auditor who is conducting an independent audit of every work station at Garaventa Lift, including all of the offices. He is looking for conformance to the principles of “5S” – sort, simplify, sweep, standardize and sustain.
Each department is rated on each of the 5 elements using a five point scale. Every work station, every department, and the company as a whole are all expected to show significant continuous improvement.
The scoring criteria for every element are posted in all departments, along with the most recent audit results and action items to be completed in order to increase the score for the next audit. Weekly “walk around” inspections ensure that the program remains a top priority.
On June 11, 2014 The Reliable Living Centre in downtown Toronto had their Grand Opening. The facility showcases products to enhance any building and make it barrier-free. The showroom features a vertical platform lift, and inclined platform lift and a LU/LA elevator with a glass enclosure. All of these products were provided by Garaventa Lift. The Elvoron LU/LA with the Glass Enclosure has been selected as the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for June, 2014.
The installation really pops. It features a two-tone custom RAL color scheme with bright white aluminum enclosure framing and sliding doors offset by deep orange fascia around the doors.

Congratulations to Garaventa Lift Ontario and to The Reliable Living Centre!
