Residential Elevators Are Becoming Commonplace

An elevator allows Aging in Place to become a reality in all detached or semi-detached multi-story homes.
With these socio-economic trends in play, some questions come to mind for those in the home construction industry:

Can an architect or designer afford not to allow for an elevator as a common feature in a spec or custom home?

Should any townhouse development that’s 3 stories above grade come standard with elevators?

Can a builder afford not to offer elevators as an option in an ever competitive landscape with well-educated buyers?

At what relative price (2.5% of average house value) will it be where choosing between an elevator and countertops are made in the same breath? Some would argue that we’re already there.
There’s never been a time where home buyers have had a broader choice of home styles, location options, ‘green’ features, design variety and convenience amenities. There’s also never been a time where buyers have had such a high level of expectation given these choices.

The elevator industry has kept pace with the trends, both functional and cosmetic – your clients will appreciate your forward-thinking approach as you offer home elevators in your future designs and builds.

Your Elevator, Your Preferences…Genesis Delivers!

On Berkshire Rd. in Atlanta you will see a brand new home with a very contemporary flare. Genesis was given the opportunity of installing an elevator in this home with the cab design to match this contemporary style. You will notice the attractive mirrored stainless ceiling and the mirrored stainless wall in the rear of the cab. You will also note the high end perforated gate that rides with the elevator cab. From the budget conscious to the ornate, Genesis Elevator Company will custom build every installation to meet the need and preference of the owner.


A Unique Choice for This Home Elevator!

Have you ever felt like you were under water in a project? Well….we did. Scott Sizemore with QMR was tasked with the project of retrofitting a three opening residential elevator in the home of Mr. Ethridge in Atlanta. Scott contacted us to help with the project and Genesis Elevator Company was more than up for the task. When discussing selections for the interior of the cab, Mr. Ethridge requested that we install clear acrylic accordion gates. Once we understood his vision for the finished product, we couldn’t agree more as to his choice. The moment you step into his elevator, you are immersed into an underwater world. Manty, an up and coming artist, created an underwater master piece on the walls of the hoistway. Quite unique and certainly adds an element of fun to his elevator! While riding the elevator, the use of the acrylic gates provide a three floor experience of underwater imagination!


One Museum Place and Genesis Elevator Team Up!










One Museum Place is a refined collection of 44 residences with Atlanta’s premiere location, directly across from the High Museum of Art. One Museum Place is destined to complement the masterworks of Renzo Piano and Richard Meier with an impeccable design for livability and luxury. Genesis Elevator was selected to install the personal elevator in the unit for Mr. John Wieland. With brushed stainless fixtures and a beautiful maple cab, we were able to provide a home elevator to match the scale of luxury living in Atlanta.


The Importance of Skilled Trades

There is a very obvious shortage of skilled trades right now. For whatever the reasons there are not nearly enough electricians, plumbers, mill workers, welders, elevator technicians ect….let alone “talented” tradesmen required to meet the current and upcoming demand! If we as leaders in the construction industry expect the upcoming generations to provide excellent commercial elevator installations, modernizations, repairs, or service, we must do our part to contribute and help both educate and encourage the younger generations! Genesis Elevator just recently contributed to RW Allan’s skilled trade convention which is an annual effort to both educate, recruit, and encourage young men and women to join a skilled trade in Georgia.


Genesis Elevator Partnering with Beecham

This is place that Beecham Builder Group has called “Folia – Old Milton”. Genesis Elevator Company is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Beecham in the project providing elevator solutions for these luxury townhomes.

What Really Matters!

While we are all focused on the hustle and bustle this Christmas season, may we not forget what truly matters! Gift giving, fun, family….all those things are very important and are all blessings from God, but if we take our eyes off the real reason we are able to celebrate and do these things, we  miss the heart of it all, which is Jesus! May we keep our eyes focused on the real meaning of Christmas and share the love, joy, and peace with those who do not know Him so that they may too have the eternal hope that we’ve been offered from the day of His birth until now! We at Genesis pray that each of you, our friends, know this true meaning and have found everlasting peace through a baby born in a manger for each one of our souls! God bless and Merry Christmas from each of us here at Genesis Elevator Company of Atlanta, Ga.!
