Featured Project: Emigrant Savings Bank

April 14, 2012 | By Doug Boydston

The Emigrant Savings Bank at 10 Downing Street in Manhattan serves the long-time residents of Greenwich Village, many of whom are seniors who still like to do their banking face-to-face. They come in, take a look at the stairs, and wonder if there is a better way to get to the tellers. Now the branch manager, who knows most of them by name, can tell them that there is a better way: a new vertical platform wheelchair lift.

Check out our Featured Projects page for photos of this custom stainless and glass vertical platform lift and all the technical details.
