Elevator Modernization

I spent a good portion of the day today at a prebid meeting for the modernization to two elevators.  We are turning an old manual freight elevator into an automatic elevator first.  When that is done the old passenger elevator will be modernized.  We measured the distance from the entrance level to the floor of the tow level in order to determine if a new electric generator will be necessary.  The building fell within the height limit that does not require a generator by code.  This saved the owners big bucks.  I also had on hand and interior designer.  She will be coordinating cab design with future hallway design that is planned to be performed after the elevator modernization.
