Handi-Lift Requested to Work on Prestigious Project in Singapore

February 21, 2011 | By Nora Boydston

Recently Handi-Lift was contacted by Chan Keng Whatt of Chevalier Group for information about a custom designed platform lift for a prestigious project in Singapore.

The project is called Skyline @ Orchard Boulevard, a luxury residence building developed by Far East Organization, the largest private property developer in Singapore.

The breathtaking building was designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Fumihiko Maki. Maki most recently designed Tower 4 at the former World Trade Center site set to open in 2013.

Chevalier Group was inspired to contact Handi-Lift after seeing the beautiful custom designed lifts made for the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York City on our website. These lifts are special because they blend practicality with aesthetics, something that is always a concern in design, especially for luxury developments like the Skyline building.

This project is still currently in the planning stages, with completion three years down the road. Doug Boydston was happy to provide Chevalier Group with a budget estimate and design information for the lift to be built in the US and shipped to Singapore for installation. Handi-Lift looks forward to the opportunity to work on this exciting project.
