CONSOLIDATED SURVEY & SITE VISIT INFORMATION:
This lift is 12 years old and is no longer in operation. It is an example of an entirely
self-contained unit with the Acme screw mechanism enclosed in a tower. (The tower, the end
gates, and an integral side panel with controls comprise the entire platform enclosure.)
Over time the infrequency of use, lack of maintenance, and provision of new accessible ramps as part
of a building renovation have caused abandonment of the unit.
Maintenance personnel could not recall any significant operational problems over the life of the
No attempt was made to integrate the metal unit into the design of the courthouse lobby which made
it appear as a very awkward element and overemphasized its presence.
