Outside the Box

We were proud to team up with Takeuchi and install an elevator in their facility!

College Degree Vs. Trade School…That is the Question!

Today it seems like everyone thinks they are supposed to go to college. This should come as no surprise since we have absolutely crammed this idea down everyone’s throat for the last few decades. Whereas perhaps a college degree used to be the “meal ticket” for success the problem now days is that demand for higher education (and with watered down academic standards) comes a multitude of educational institutions which have quite literally sprouted up on every street corner and online and there is a limitless list of degrees one can choose from. The result….kids are graduating with debt up to their eyeballs and often times with a degree that means nothing to hiring employers. Another consequence of this phenomenon is that with the mass movement to higher education the skilled trades of this country are in higher demand now than they ever have been. There is currently an extreme shortage of plumbers, electricians, crane operators….and elevator technicians. Not a surprising statistic, although seemingly ignored, the salaries of said positions have increase dramatically in the last 2 decades, much more in fact than those with college degrees (and without near the debt). I do not intend to dismiss the importance of education, nor discourage anyone from pursuing an academic program to reach a respective dream. However- I do offer up a consideration that college may not be for everyone and for every dream. God saw fit to give us each a different skill set and we should use ours accordingly. Good with your hands? A natural troubleshooter? Perhaps you are naturally able to visualize how something is supposed to go together, get wired up, welded together…etc.? Consider a trades school or an apprenticeship of a skilled trade. Genesis Elevator is always looking for sharp-minded and hungry young men and women who want to pursue a position as an elevator technician for elevator installation, elevator service, and elevator modernization.

Simpler Solutions With Genesis Elevators

Customer~ “Great- we just built this beautiful new performing arts building but the inspector won’t pass because of ADA access! We are going to have to tear these steps out and build a ramp!!!!”

Been down this road? Nothing is more stressful than trying to get a CO. In this case Genesis was able to install a wheel chair lift….more particularly, an inclined platform lift that enabled the school to keep their stairs and use them when the lift is not in use (it folds against the wall, as shown in the example pic.)

Genesis Installs Elevators in The Manor

Located inside lushly landscaped entrance gates, The Manor subdivision is set among 800 acres of beautiful rolling hills, the setting sits majestically overlooking shimmering Lake Manor. The architecturally timeless European design combines rich, old-world details like cozy fireplaces with modern-day comforts. Of the homes in this development, Genesis has installed elevators in quite a few of them. Most recently we completed a home elevator installation form the Forrer residence.

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!
