Project of the Month Feb 2019

Genesis Outdoor Vertical Platform Lift

Thank you to Dan Zammar and Access Elevator and Lifts for this magnificent customized tthree-level outdoor Genesis Enclosure installation that has earned them the Project of the Month title for February 2019.

Genesis Outdoor Vertical Platform Lift

This vertical platform lift is installed at a Bank of America Branch in Overland Park, Kansas. The bank is in a small town, with a limited budget and wanted a cost-effective way to provide better accessibility for its customers. They considered an elevator indoors, but the cost and amount of valuable floor space consumed were prohibitive. An outdoor Genesis Lift provided a great low cost alternative that would provide better accessibility from both the sidewalk level and parking level while preserving the floor space of the bank.

The lift has a number of customizations. It features tower supports due to lack of a nearby tieback location. Two beautiful bridges on different levels were constructed with custom railings that include sleek glass sidewalls. The bridges are more complicated than the typical project in that they are freestanding and supported by footings, and the lower level features a right angle turn. Other features of the project include power doors on the lift, an ADA compliant 42×60 platform, a sloped roof, and a fan and vent with mast heater to make the lift comfortable in any season.

Special thanks to Josh Solis, our in-house designer, as well as our fabrication shop for making this unconventional installation happen.

Modern Walnut Residential Elevator

AEL Logo Plate

Our thanks and appreciation go out to Ryan Anglim and the rest of the great crew at Access Elevator and Lifts Inc, NE. Their submission of photos of the Elvoron MR installation has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for December, 2018.

This elevator is the definition of a high quality and luxury product. Notice how the walnut finish matches the surrounding structure, creating a sense of unity and comfort. In addition, the premium fixtures and COP add contrast, while the walnut finish compliments the modern aesthetic of the interior.

Also, the wooden panels surround the elevator enclosure on all three floors of the home creating dimension and a mid-century modern design. This project is undeniably the work of a very knowledgeable and professional buyer and fit for the home of an architect.

Residential application in a Luxurious Home

Our thanks and appreciation go out to Don Sanchez and the rest of the great crew at Garaventa Lift, BC. Their submission of photos from the 1686 Lands End Road residence in Saanich, BC has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for November, 2018.

The Elvoron residential elevator is featured in a luxurious home located along a stretch of rugged coast. It contains white melamine cabin walls and a black ceiling, forming a striking design element. In addition, the antique black premium COP, hall station and built-in phone, contrast very well with the white cabin walls and surrounding decor. In keeping with elevator safety codes, the tinted mirror panels are made of laminated safety glass (provided by others). This appealing option along with the energy-efficient LED lighting creates a sense of space.

 

Providing access to the 933 sqft Master retreat that over looks the beautiful ocean, island and mountains, this elevator is a premium option for luxury homes. It can be designed to harmonize with the interior of any home.
