This summer we have been working at Carleton College to upgrade their elevators. The college has a fair number of elevators scattered across the campus. It is essential to keep elevators operating in proper condition. With that in mind the State of Minnesota has revised operational code requirements for all elevators in the state.
Many of the elevator code improvements are not significant since the college has had a good maintenance plan in place for years and the elevators are in good condition. But this is an opportunity to upgrade some elevators from freight status to passenger status. Doing that requires much more work. The college will essentially end up with an entirely new elevator ready to serve students and staff for many more decades.
Our work will continue on for several more months as we move from building to building.
