Sure, elevators go up and down, but the path to designing and constructing a new elevator is full of twists and turns. With pretty cool tools, KONE enables our customers to realize their vision quicker.
I’m behind the keyboard for many of these interactions, and it’s always a pleasure to quickly answer questions and help keep an architect or developer moving in the right direction.
As a quick example, we understand and value the importance of maximizing space when designing our elevators. Our hoistways and control rooms are small to fit seamlessly with most architectural design. We also offer a wide array of materials to create an aesthetically-pleasing elevator and elevator lobby.
Today’s technology has provided many advancements to our design capabilities and tools. The days of looking at 2-D renderings and sketches are in the past. Using Building Information Modelling (BIM), we provide 3-D and 4-D animations of how an elevator will appear once constructed. This allows us to calculate accurate placement, leaving a very small margin of error. And, we also offer a car designer tool, providing architects the opportunity to render the interior of the elevator. Our tools take the guesswork out of elevator design and construction and allow architects and accurate view of the finished product.
