The Custom Elevator Design Process
The process for the design of a custom home elevator begins with a realistic vision of what you want from a home elevator. There is a reason we say “realistic”. Do you want this custom elevator to be part of some massive home renovation project? Or do you want a custom-crafted home elevator that blends with the design and existing design and interior of your home? Once those questions have been answered, a clearer vision will begin to take shape.
The design process, when done correctly, has several steps. It starts with ideas. Those ideas are then translated to drawings. Architectural plans and design concepts are studied and reviewed to make sure they are in line with the customer’s vision. Once those ideas and drawings are approved, those ideas are then turned into a physical reality, in the form of a 3D model of the elevator. This presents the client with a realistic view of what the finished product will look like. This also allows the client to make adjustments before construction begins on the elevator.
A realistic timeline is also presented to the client. Creating a custom home elevator the right way takes time. It’s important for the client to understand the timeframe. It is also important that the client is updated and involved throughout the design and construction process, from start to finish. Home elevators can come in different models. Some elevators, often of the more traditional variety, will require a machine room in the home. Other models, such as vacuum elevators, will not require a machine room.
Understanding and being involved in the process is important for anyone considering a custom home elevator.
