Completed Project – Residential Elevator Installation

This exciting project included the addition of an elevator to improve the functionality of a three story townhouse for an older couple.  The elevator starts in the basement garage and proceeds through the first level foyer, and completes its journey at the third level living space including the kitchen and family room.  The elevator is rated up to 1,000 pounds, has a call button on every floor, and a hard-wired telephone inside for use in emergencies.  In addition to the elevator installation, the foyer to the home was re-designed and expanded to accommodate for the elevator using the space that was originally the entrance.
