Greenbuild 2014 is being held October 22 & 23 in New Orleans, Louisiana. For the first time, Garaventa Lift will be exhibiting at Greenbuild, exhibiting our compact, efficient accessibility solutions. Greenbuild is a show based on designing better environmental solutions for construction projects. The main focus has always been larger industrial and commercial projects, though they have a small residential pavilion. Garaventa Lift will be presenting our commercial accessibility lifts and LU/LA Elevators.
We sometimes take accessibility for granted. But when it was taken away from a Principal at a school in Queens, New York, it was clear that a solution was needed right away. The solution is a Stair-Trac by Garaventa Lift. It is an innovative product: a portable wheelchair lift.

Did you realize, according to the United Nations, that over ONE BILLION PEOPLE live with some sort of disability? That’s 15% of the entire population of the world! December 3rd has been sanctioned by the UN as International Day of People with Disability. The aim is to promote an understanding of people with disability and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
At Garaventa, we understand how the removal of barriers can be inspiring. We have been fortunate to witness countless episodes where barriers have been removed. It shows that people with disabilities are empowered by accessibility projects. The looks on their faces when they realize greater freedom is truly uplifting (no pun intended).
