​​The Johnston County Department of Social Services Building, has served it’s community well over the many years at North Street, the multi-story building has gone through many changes and updates over the years. However, the subject of an elevator being installed was never one of them until the idea of a Modular Elevator was brought to the attention of the County. The Modular Elevator was to be the answer to finally bringing this older building up to ADA code without having

to give up space within the building. This 3500 pound capacity elevator would also benefit the patrons of this office with logistics and utilization of the communities resources. This modular elevator installation at Johnston County Department of Social Services will be the first of its kind in Smithfield. The modular elevator consisting of a prefabricated hoistway and pre-installed elevator equipment will be craned into position in less than an hour.

​Resolute Elevator LLC installs high quality modular elevators manufactured in the USA. A modular elevator is comprised of a superior welded structural steel hoistway that contains the elevator rails, hydraulic jack, pit ladder, pit light, pit GFCI, hoistway door system, all related wiring and the car pre-installed inside. They are self-supporting and built to withstand extreme seismic activity and hurricane force winds. Modular elevators are manufactured horizontally, shipped by truck to the jobsite, and set into place with a crane. The modular elevator design eliminates the need for construction of an elevator shaft, providing huge savings of time and money while increasing safety on the jobsite by eliminating the fall hazard associated with conventional elevator shafts. The modular design reduces total installation time from several months to a week or less.
