For you as a property owner or manager, there exist many reasons why modernizing your elevators is desirable or a necessity. “Desirable” upgrades include enhancing performance, making your elevators more energy efficient, and creating “peace of mind” by heading off potential shutdowns and unexpected expenses. Also included is aesthetically and functionally modernizing your elevators to delight and retain your current tenants and attract new ones. But upgrading becomes “urgent” when it involves correcting matters of tenant dissatisfaction, system dependability, code compliance, violation removal, and, far above all, safety.
Of course, we at D&D are aware that money is always a consideration and modernizations are not always planned for, or “in the budget.” Therefore, we have created a plan for you to upgrade your elevators and enjoy the benefits without a major one-time budget hit.
In most cases, with an eye on practical capital planning, D&D can help you implement an upgrade program over a period of time, spaced over 3-5 years. How the stages are strategized depends on the priority of your needs and budgetary considerations. This can help you achieve the ongoing benefits of an upgrade, including resulting cost savings and efficiencies, while comfortably managing your financial resources and business considerations.
These are some suggested early-stage upgrades:
If your elevators are constantly breaking down and causing repeated call-backs, or they have aged more than 12-15 years without a significant upgrade, it’s time to consider at least some immediate action to avoid major problems, and strategize a phased modernization plan over the next several years.
Call us for a free evaluation of your elevator systems and developing an upgrade plan customized to your specific needs and financial considerations. Regardless of the path you choose, or the size of your upgrade, your job will require permits and inspections, with which D&D will assist you. We stand ready to serve you at (914) 347-4344
