ProblemAn incoming university student with impaired mobility and a service dog could benefit from a special auxiliary elevator car operating panel. The student was set to arrive in late August, and the request to Schindler came through just one month prior.
SolutionSchindler’s local team jumped into action to get a design for an oversized car operating panel fixture that could be operated by a service dog. Schindler worked quickly to provide the university a proposed layout along with the necessary documents to move the project forward.
ResultsThe fabrication and delivery of the custom panels was expedited, and Schindler completed the installation in time for the student’s arrival.
