Case Study: Pembroke 1201 Lobby Entrance

Visit our Case Study page to see the article on one of our newest custom projects. This beautiful lift in Washington, D.C. features custom stone cladding and a smoked glass enclosure to match its surroundings. It was a challenging project due to the full frame support system and direct-acting hydraulic drive installed in a deep pit beneath the lift. 

We had the opportunity to design and install this lift this year, and we are pleased to know that there is an employee in the building who uses this lift every day to get to the office. With a design that blends in with the lobby, and a reliable, smooth ride for the user, this application really demonstrates our mission of Accessibility with Dignity.
