There was no room for the machine room. This project at the outset seemed simple. It was a two-story building with ten feet of travel indicating the need for a hydraulic elevator. The problem was there was no room for a machine room.
The design team at Phoenix Modular Elevator took on the challenge of lack of space with a unique solution. They designed the hoistway with an additional room at the top of the hoistway that met all codes and provided the perfect space for the tank, pump and plumbing.
