Design Process

When a custom elevator design is properly executed, the results are nothing but spectacular. Designing the ideal elevator not only includes choosing the design and materials for the elevator doors and panel but also thinking about elevating your home’s overall design during the elevator manufacturing process.

The process begins with the exchange of ideas and drawings. We carefully examine the architectural plans and the desires of our client. Our manufacturing partners offer design options and material considerations to help define the concept. Preliminary sketches are developed to ensure that we are capturing the client’s wishes. Once the sketches are approved, we provide our clients with a 3D model of their elevator to make sure that every detail is exactly right before our crafters get to work. Clients often have a difficult time determining how the finished project will look based only on 2D drawings. Being able to see the home elevator design from different angles gives our clients the ability to approve fabrication with much less worry.

Creating a one-of-a-kind elevator takes time, and we’ll guide you through the process and maintain a one-on-one relationship with you while we work to customize your home elevator design. You’ll be kept well-informed during the fabrication of your high-end elevator: The manufacturing timeline is presented to you before we begin the elevator manufacturing process. Our experienced crafters and engineers will design and manufacture each component of your high-quality elevator to your exacting specifications. Adequate time must be allowed, as each piece is custom-made. Then, every component is tested in our facility before delivery; the entire elevator is assembled and tested to ensure the highest level of quality.

Designing a custom elevator begins with deciding where the elevator will fit in your house and how it will be designed. A home elevator typically is designed as a hydraulic elevator, a winding drum elevator, a machine traction drive elevator, or a vacuum elevator. These elevator types use different types of motor mechanisms, some of which require a machine room in addition to the elevator car and shaft, so this is an important consideration in the elevator manufacturing process. Whether your custom elevator will be an in-house, personal elevator for mobility or convenience purposes or a commercial elevator for a small to medium-sized building, we have many design options once the type of elevator has been decided upon.

After the basic elevator design has been chosen, the architectural process of elevator design can begin for your custom elevator. Both commercial and residential custom elevators have many design options, including panoramic glass elevators, a typical style for a vacuum elevator, and wood elevators for ultra-luxurious homes. You’ll be able to choose the shape, style, and materials incorporated in your luxury elevator.

A custom elevator is the next dimension in luxury living. From contemporary, minimalist styles to ornate elevator designs with wood and metal panels, the options for commercial and residential custom elevators are practically limitless. We’ll work within your budget and design expectations to create a product that is functional and will complement your home or small building.
