Located in Houston Texas another featured elevator modernization project was successfully completed by EMR Elevator, Inc.
The beautiful 1950’s Heights building originally developed for Southwestern Bell was the historical structure that once housed, switchboards, operators and crank telephones.
The high-end development was a residential product of Röhe & Wright builders. Known for their timeless architecture and sought after neighborhoods. They purchased the three story property and quickly began working on the luxurious transformation.
EMR was honored to be awarded the vertical transportation portion of this high-end project. The scope consisted of demolishing the three-story elevators and modernizing everything from elevator controllers to cabs.
The swift elevator controllers were replaced by California Manufacturer (EC), who provided their latest pixel controllers. The easy design made the installation quick and seamless.
The builders focused the architectural style on preserving the history of the building while creating modern features and structural support required.
The elevator’s overall esthetic looks were inspired by the appreciation of the original building’s unique cab design. The antique cab shells were modernized by C. Lindsey Designs of Texas. The designers were successful in reclaiming the original materials. The curved shell and nickel silver trim was carefully refinished to recover the classic elevator features.
The operation of the elevators in the early phases of the project was a major factor to the overall construction. Thanks to everyone involved the project was a huge success!
