DAY was brought into this project very early in the planning stages of The Freedom Tower at Ground Zero. Conde Nast moved to 1 World Trade Center on November 3, 2014. Reaching a height of 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center has become the tallest building in New York City. The major challenge was that the first tenant, Conde Nast, needed to be able to move files and paperwork between the 34th & 35th floors in the building. Though it was agreed that a dumbwaiter could help meet the requirement, the elevator and lift company had to comply with all fire codes and Port Authority Jurisdiction, given the nature of the project.
Industry trained technicians and the team at DAY Elevator & Lift successfully installed multiple lifts within the Ground Zero area by obtaining all security clearances and background checks via the SWAC (Secure Workers Access Consortium) program. This included the dumbwaiter in the Conde Nast HQ. Handicap Wheel chairlift at the World Trade Center Museum, Underground Parking Lots, Security center and Material Handing lifts at the World Financial Center. These Products save manpower, space, time, energy and avoid workplace injuries.
A trusted elevator and lift dealer in the New York area, DAY Elevator & Lift continues to provide customized installation, maintenance and on-call services that meet and often exceed customer expectations, and ensure the longevity of their diverse mobility equipment – including elevators, stairlifts and wheelchair lifts.
