    Elevator costs

    Has anyone dealt with the installation of an elevator within a historic 2-story buildling? Any idea of a cost range?

    I went through this nine years ago. The project cost about $140,000, but it included a new entrance and handicapped accessible washrooms.

    Is that cost effective putting an elevator in?

    What are the heritage impacts?

    We are running into this problem where people are renovating historic buildings in the downtown for occupancy. One developer sought a variance from the 1988 ANSI Elevator Code. Kone Elevator spoke on behalf of a developer explaining the principles behind this new kind of elevator, which is a gearless traction elevator and uses 60% less energy than the standard hydraulic elevator. They "say" it's cleaner too in comparison to a hydraulic elevator that could potentially leak and corrode.
    One lot of redevelopment prevents a block of sprawl.

    For 2 stories go hydraulic if you can, will cost about 50 to 60 grand. Machine room less elevators (side mounted machines) require less overhead penthouse. But require more width and cost more.
