About The Project
The Elevator Modernization Program for the Chicago Housing Authority requires all elevators in their buildings to be upgraded with new equipment, controllers, and cab finishes. In addition all elevator shafts and machine rooms are to be modified to bring them to current code standards. These current code standards include elevator Sump Pits, HVAC upgrades, Fire Alarm Upgrades, Electrical upgrades, and code compliant handrails and safety ladders. In addition, any abatement in these areas are mitigated.
