Turnkey Elevator Solution

Turnkey Elevator Solution – The pain points of building a multi-story project are myriad, however one stands out like no other; the elevator. It is one of the most time consuming and often the most costly part of a building project. It can be absolutely maddening. But, beyond that, the way elevators are traditionally installed is not just old-fashioned, but antiquated. I can think of no major product today that has stayed so backwards for so long. Yet, even that is not what is so infuriating. To architects, builders, GCs, design build firms and owners it is the loss of control of the build that hurts most.

How Control Is Maintained

Ultimately, control is why there seems to be so much angst, anger and warfare for such a small space. That space or turf will not be surrendered easily because it produces significant income. The result is that monopolistic control must be maintained. So before I get to how specifically a turnkey elevator is the solution lets look at how the big name elevator companies control the process.

  • Major elevator companies limit information. This is not unusual as they are in the business of selling elevators, however it goes much deeper. Where the components come from, how the elevator is constructed, the timeline for completion, contractual obligations, maintenance plans and other crucial information are all tucked neatly away where they are not seen or addressed.
  • They restrict access through proprietary parts and components. This limits the options of the building owner. It forces them back to the elevator company throughout the life of the building. Making and finding alternatives is impossible.
  • Contracts are unfair and lopsided. From the installation to the long-term maintenance agreement all of the power shifts to the manufacturer.
  • The elevator company controls the timeline from delivery of the components to the start up of the elevator. This makes them a stubborn stall on completion. They remain on the critical path and cannot be removed.
  • Big name elevator companies control your property, when people can come and go, storage areas and more.

Through the above controls and others, the elevator is mystified and complicated. The process is likewise extended and obfuscated. One of the biggest complaints is that people are kept in the dark. From the site supervisor to the property owner they feel they are out of the loop with few alternatives.

There is a Difference

The difference in the process and outcome are huge. The traditional method is slow and controlling. The turnkey elevator is fast and easy. But how? What makes our process, placement and installation so revolutionary? In a nutshell a traditional elevator system takes roughly the same components of a modular elevator and installs them onsite. Mechanics carry them one piece at a time into a crowded hoistway. It is assembled like a ship in a bottle; impractical, slow and laborious.

Turnkey elevator swings into place in less than four hours and starts up in a week.

Our turnkey elevator is produced in a factory where a perfect hoistway is produced out of tough steel. It is then wrapped in drywall for code compliance. All the elevator components are subsequently installed in the factory. All go in the hoistway and get ready for delivery. Weather and other site conditions do not matter in our process.

The elevator then gets delivered on a truck or trucks for your low to mid-rise project. It is ready to be craned into place. The process takes about four hours or less. Once power is supplied we return to start the elevator up. A week later you have a fully functioning elevator ready to be used. They can even be used as a construction elevator.
