The Project of the Month for April has been chosen, and what a unique project it is!
The lift is a 2 level custom color outdoor Genesis enclosure installed by Lift Aids in Fort Worth Texas. It features a domed roof and external lights.
The unique feature of this lift is a graphic Vinyl Wrap done by the General Contractor to look like the famous “Big Ben” clock tower of London England. Using a Vinyl wrap is a great idea to add customization or branding to your lift project. It also protects the lift from weather and damage.
This stunning graphic was used in order to improve the street appearance of the lift and help brand and promote the English-style pub downstairs. The vinyl is actually perforated so that you can see through it which helps natural light in the lift and prevents it from feeling too enclosed.
The pub is the Winchester Tavern 903 Throckmorton. If you are visiting Texas it looks like a magnificent bar to stop for a pint!
The print helps make the lift a stylistic match for the bar, pictured below.
We have a new project of the month courtesy of Adam Bey of Handel & Son Elevator/Lift Co in Ohio.
The Genesis Vertical Platform Lift was installed at the JACK Thistledown Racino (Casino and Race Track) in Northfield, North Randall, Ohio for a disabled employee who was returning to work. The employee needed secure access to the upper level of the casino, which is an employee only work area previously only accessible via a stairway.
A custom cream frame color was requested to match the mouldings, along with operators and a flip-up seat. A nice touch to the lift is the smoke tinted plexi-glass panels which help further match the dark aesthetic of the casino.
In addition to all of these customizations, a tight deadline to have the project ready for the employee’s return made this a logistically fun and interesting project for the Handel & Son Elevator team.
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.
