When property giant Cadillac Fairview tasked us with providing a much-needed downtown elevator renovation, we knew we had to take everything into consideration – technology, lighting, mood, and the rider’s experience. In the end, this was both the smallest and the largest project our firm has tackled. The result is a mere 332 square feet of designed space.
There are 869 birds per cab routed on the back surface of the Corian panels alluding to the “flight” of the cab passengers. This rear panel etching enables the edges to “catch” the light emitted from the LEDs and allows the front panel surface to remain smooth and easy to clean. Each elevator cab is set to the warmest lighting setting possible providing a sense of comfort to the 42 square foot environment.
Our extended team also updated the elevator controls and operating system to introduce Destination Dispatch technology to improve the elevator response and reduce travel time for passenger experience.
