This federal project modernized seven elevators at the James M. Hanley Federal Building – six passenger elevators and one freight elevator. The elevator upgrades also ensured code compliance and more energy efficient measure to be implemented. A pre-design investigation, traffic analysis and equipment comparison allowed the NKB design team to meet the best modernization solution while balancing costs and long-lasting performance. To allow for continued daily business operations, NKB created phasing plans that allowed the work to be completed one elevator at a time while keeping select elevators open to the public and providing safety to the contractors performing the work.
We created a phased implementation to keep the entire building covered with elevator service while this project was executed.
