While the design and construction of custom elevators, material lifts and cranes is undeniably a niche market, its allure, appeal and relevance are essentially universal. Although the people, material, and equipment transport requirements run the gamut, a common set of circumstances and associated needs tend to arise.
Unanticipated challenges―from shallow pit depths to severe space constraints and restrictive structural footings―often emerge. Decisions to incorporate late-stage “add-ons” arise―facility capabilities and features that dramatically change a project’s “ground rules.” And unconventional personal, business and government applications generate unique and, to us, exciting requirements.
All these examples represent real-life situations that demanded highly customized solutions that Gillespie designs, engineers and manufactures. Such as shallow pit elevators, pitless elevators, wheelchair accessibility power lifts, and much more.
Even better, it’s what we love to do.
