About this Project

Existing tenancies below and design constraints to the current building structure resulted in provison of 4 custom designed lifts for the newly completed Crowne Plaza, Hobart.

  • 3 custom lifts with reduced pit depths
  • 1 goods lift
  • Custom lift fitouts and bronze doors
  • All lifts integrated with InterContinental Hotels Group security standards
With our team of engineers, we designed 4 lifts to suit the existing lift shaft allocations. One of the lifts required complete customisation to fit the 300mm shallow pit provided.

A cutting edge design for the goods lift had diagonal car bows with a center sheave, motor room above, and a combination of side and center opening doors. A first for a 12 stop, 3000KG goods lift moving at 2m/s!

We were proud to receive commendation from the vertical transport consultant on the design, quality of work, and integrity of our equipment.
