Did you know that Buckingham Palace in London uses a Garaventa Lift OPAL to ensure accessibility? The lift was manufactured in a custom colour to match the unique colour of Buckingham Palace. Since 1837 the building has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns and today it represents the administrative headquarters of the Monarch. The palace is often at the center of state occasions and royal hospitality. 



About the Genesis OPAL:
