|Nationwide Lifts Elevator|
|AIBD Conference Attendees|
Our sessions were from Nationwide Lifts and Coronado Stone. The Nationwide Lifts elevator presentation explained the current code requires for residential elevators. After their presentation, the conference attendees walked down the street with a representative to where there was an installation of one of the elevators they discussed in their presentation. This particular elevator was in the remodel of a two-story loft apartment and can be used in almost any residential setting. Its progressive technology doesn't require a pit or many of the other accouterments that are usually needed in elevation installation. Mary says, "It's just really cool looking." She was reminded of the elevator from the TV show The Jetsons, where Elroy would enter the room through a tube that looks very similar.
The Coronado Stone presentation was informative and educational, showing installation techniques for their product. Many of the new houses in Colorado Springs, whether craftsmen or mountain style, have some sort of stone veneer on the outside walls. It is always helpful to those of us in the office to know how building products like this are actually put together in the field.
