A fraternity at Cornell University gets a Genesis Shaftway and wins project of the month June!

  • Product: Genesis Shaftway
  • Installed by: Northstar Lifts
  • Location: Delta Upsilon Fraternity at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, USA
  • Installation year: 2020

Northstar Lifts wins project of the month June by installing a Genesis Shaftway lift at the Delta Upsilon Fraternity at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.  

Plans for a lift in this building started already 45 years ago, when a freshman fraternity brother was injured in a sledding accident and became a wheelchair user. “Wheels” still visits the fraternity annually, and thanks to the great work of Northstar Lift’s team he can now access the building without having to be carried up the stairs! 

Congratulations to our partner Northstar Lifts in Tully, New York for claiming project of the month June!
