Education Solutions Ready to Go
Safe, quality commercial elevators that are delivered when you need them. That is the difference that we can make for education projects.
The Modular Elevator Manufacturing (MEM) Elevator System is flexible enough for almost any educational building including stadiums, classroom access, administrative offices, student housing or any other application you can think of.
The MEM Elevator System is that flexible. But it is also very easy. We take care of the hard work and allow you or your team to consider the options.
Also, the MEM Elevator System is designed for any school district and even meets the rigorous demands of the state of California. They are Pre-Designed and have a Pre-Approved Plan Check (PC) by the California Division of State Architecture (DSA) for both interior and exterior elevators.
This means we can meet any building challenge regardless of the jurisdiction. The complete elevator and hoistway including the pit design is ready for approvals and submittals. You will find they have the following already in place:
- Hoistway and Rails
- Pit and Concrete Details
- Modular Machine Room if Requested
- Pit Ladder
- Elevator Layout and Access Compliance
We also make available plans that easily are dragged and dropped into any drawings and for California partners a DSA Submission is as simple as taking a set of MEM Pre-Approved DSA PC drawings and attaching them to any set of Architectural drawings.
Whether the project is built traditionally, or as a modular project as is the growing trend, they are an exceptional option that is easily integrated.
The MEM Elevator System is perfect for projects with up to 75 feet of elevator travel and are available for both interior and exterior applications. They have tremendous flexibility in design and placement.
Also, we are the true experts in vertical transportation and will help guide the project proactively. Because of the high quality of the elevator and our professional staff, we have installed more elevators than any other modular company and have more elevators placed in schools than any other modular elevator company.
Our Modular Elevators are produced exclusively at the MEM factory at the same time the prep and foundation work for the site is being conducted. The MEM System is then trucked to the site and set into the elevator pit with a crane in about 4 hours and the elevator is off the critical path…often before a conventional elevator even begins to be installed.
As the MEM Elevator System is in place early in the construction process it can even be set up as a Construction Hoist, under temporary power, providing additional cost savings to the project.
As with any elevator, it is recommended that a Modular Elevator be incorporated early in the project design process to accommodate the footprint, any building connections and required machine room space. This leads to a smooth Building Permit process (avoiding deferred submittals), eliminates any reconfiguration of the building and provides for efficient construction.
Elevators Made Simple
Simply Put – The Modular Elevator Manufacturing (MEM) – Modular Elevator System is an innovative solution that consists of a full conventional commercial elevator pre-installed in a Pre-Engineered Hoistway, fabricated off-site by our sister company Modular Elevator Manufacturing (MEM), and delivered to the job-site as a complete Hydraulic Modular Elevator solution for projects with up to 75 feet of elevator travel for both interior and exterior elevator applications.
Design and Construction
The MEM Modular Elevator System greatly simplifies the complete elevator design and construction process. Note: The MEM Modular Elevator is built for any building or elevator codes in any jurisdiction. This assures you of the following:
- Stamped Drawings and Calculations for JHA Approval
- No Hoistway to Design or Construct
- No Hoist Beam to Design or Construct
- Pit Ladder is included with a Modular Elevator
- Pit Light is included with a Modular Elevator
- Pit GFCI is included with a Modular Elevator
- Pit Switch is included with a Modular Elevator
- Hall Stations are Mounted on Elevator Door Frame
- Fire Rated Hoistway Walls Included
- Services only need to be brought to Machine Room on the ground floor where the Modular Elevator takes it from there into the elevator pit.
Fast Track Delivery and Installation
MEM Elevators eliminate the delays associated with conventional elevator construction that has to wait for the building to be complete before the elevator can begin to be installed.
As soon as the Modular Elevator receives approval it can go into manufacturing. The Modular Elevator is 95% substantially installed in one day, early in the project schedule and the elevator comes off the critical path. Just add the exterior finish material and bring the required services to the Machine Room and the Modular Elevator is complete..
- A Modular Elevator Delivers approx. 20 Weeks after Approvals
- A Modular Elevator Installs in 1 Day
- Elevator Start-up in a Week after Services are Installed
- Shortens the Project Critical Path
Equals Life-Cycle Savings
We use only utilize non-proprietary components from the major elevator component manufacturers. This offers greater flexibility to maintain the Modular Elevator system over its life without expensive long term service contacts.
- Non-Proprietary Components
- Major Components from the Best Manufacturers
- No Long-Term Service Contract Required
