When the 2017 Fall leaves appear D & D is booked with new construction and modernization jobs


A residential complex, built in 1969 with duplex elevators, was ready for an update and they chose D & D for the project.  The controller had been updated in the mid-eighties but the modernization of the machine (an old obsolete Armor unit), fixtures and then bringing the elevators up too today’s safety standards was a priority on the owners list.  These are geared 2000 pounds, 100 FPM, 7 stop units.


This new structure will replace three existing buildings that have degraded significantly over time and the new owners decided that D & D was the best elevator company for the installation of the 2 new elevators.  The new location is located between Lexington and 3rd Avenue and the new units will gently reflect the spirit of the old building with cladding on the lower levels and the roof will be glass.  The 2 passenger elevators will be gearless units, 2500 pounds, 500 FPM with 21 stops.


An elegant boutique/residential building located near the Beacon Theater, loaded with prewar character needed an update to their existing elevator to bring it up to today’s code and awarded D & D Elevator the job.  The last update was in conducted in 1977 and with the new upgrade the elevator will be equipped with a new controller, machine, governor and fixtures.  The passenger elevator is a geared traction unit, 1800 pounds, 200 FPM and 11 stops.


A building in the Norwood section of the Bronx was looking to upgrade their single unit elevator and picked D & D Elevator to work with.  The building, which was built in the late 50’s and still maintains a Fifth Avenue Lobby Grand Entrance but, the elevator was in need of being fully modernized with all the safety measures and equipment of 2017.  This passenger elevator is a geared, overhead traction unit,  2000 pounds, 100 FPM with 8 stops.


This newly built structure specifying two elevators asked D & D Elevator to conduct the installations located in Upper Manhattan.  For their tenants, the new building will have a ground floor community center, a large storage area, a laundry and a rooftop terrace.  One elevator will be overhead traction unit, 3500 pounds, 200 FPM with 8 stops and the other with be a twin holeless hydro unit with two stops, 2500 pounds and 100 FPM.


This Hamilton Heights 1920’s building, that is within walking distance to parks, subways and restaurants had a modernization done during the 1950’s but it needed to be brought up to the 2017 codes.  By selecting D & D Elevator, we can make the changes that are desperately needed.  Not only will the unit meet all the code issues but, we will be installing a new machine, controller, new fixtures that meet the ADA requirements.  The elevator is a geared traction unit that is 2000 pounds, 100 FPM with 7 stops.


The owners of a quaint residential building in the Washington Heights area of New York wanted to not only upgrade their building but, their elevator also and in doing so chose D & D Elevator to conduct the upgrading of the unit.  We will be installing a new geared machine, controller, door operator and ADA fixtures which is 1200 pounds, 100 FPM with 7 stops.


This bright, open loft residential/commercial building located near Spring and Crosby Streets in SOHO has only one passenger elevator, which is vital to the businesses and residents.  The owners  wanted to conduct a modernization on the unit and asked D & D to take on the job.  By doing this, we will be installing a new controller, machine, door operator, ADA fixtures along with an updated cab interior.  The Overhead traction elevator is 3000 pounds, 150 FPM with 7 stops.


A commercial and residential building, located in the upcoming area of Brooklyn, wanted to continue to attract upscale stores and tenants and in order to do this they are conducting and up-grade of their building.  This reconditioning included the modernization of the passenger elevator, which had all original equipment and awarded the job to D & D Elevator.  We will not only add a new controller, governor, machine but new fixtures and a cab interior upgrade.  All of these upgrades will not only be astatically pleasing but, ADA compliant.   Geared overhead traction with 7 stops, 100 FPM.
