Modern Walnut Residential Elevator

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.

Glass-paneled lift in Hopcat Restaurant, MO

Our thanks and appreciation go out to Bill Click and the rest of the great crew at Allrise Elevator Company, Inc. Their submission of photos from the Enclosure lift in University City, MO has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for October, 2018.





This project is located in Hopcat, a new brewery and restaurant in the city’s Delmar Loop, near the loop trolley, and the historic Theatre Tivoli. Set in a recently renovated historic building featuring wooden beams and expired brick, the standard champagne anodized aluminum material of the lift helps it to blend in with the environment. Together with the darker colors and textures of the wooden floors and stone walls, the Genesis Enclosure compliments the industrial aesthetic of the brewery. This project also features upgraded plexi-glass panels that help reflect natural light in this softly lit restaurant.

The enclosure lift is a clever option to use when a lift is required in an existing building that does not have a shaft way. In addition, the Genesis vertical lift is more cost-effective than an elevator and does not require a machine room. It also meets ADA requirements, which provides a viable option in public spaces.


Business Students visit Garaventa Lift

It was an exciting day at the Garaventa Lift manufacturing facility and offices earlier this month as we welcomed business students from both the University of Applied Sciences of Lucerne, Switzerland and the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, Canada.

The students participated in a factory tour and also had a chance to have a Q+A session with our senior management team. Discussions focused on working within culturally diverse environments both externally and internally, the challenge of marketing products globally, and how to best maintain a functional workforce.

Professor Jillaine Farrar of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, School of Business states she was “particularly impressed by the efficiency and the design of the new Garaventa Lift factory”. The Garaventa Lift organization has supported this program for over six years and looks forward to welcoming students for many years to come.

In addition to the Garaventa Lift facility and office visit, the one-week program featured many interactive seminars and site visits throughout Vancouver. Discussions on cutting-edge leadership and intercultural topics were presented by leading experts, academics and business executives. The focus areas of the program included negotiating across cultures, leadership strategies for a global manager, Vancouver as the Asian-Pacific Gateway, and Canada’s First Nations’ business traditions and culture. The goal is to give students a fantastic opportunity to discover what connects Switzerland, Canada and the rest of the world.
