About The Project
TC Architects recently completed working with the Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority for the replacement / modernization of two elevators in the Lakeview Apartment complex.
The first elevator included the modernization of a twelve stop, traction freight elevator. The second elevator included the modernization of a twelve stop, traction passenger elevator with duel doors. Both elevators included the replacement of the cabs and finishes, modifications to the fire suppression systems, access ladders, HVAC upgrades to the machine rooms along with electrical revisions, including smoke detection. The new controls were designed to be non-proprietary and each elevator was tied to the existing emergency generator. The elevators were brought up to current ADA and safety standards.
Each elevator was replaced in separate phases to minimize the disruption to the residents and staff.
