Since 1857 William Peace University has evolved with each passing year to better provide services to all students. Many of the campus buildings were built in the 1960s and 1970s many of those buildings are not accessible to all students, faculty, and staff. The University has been investigating different and atypical ways of rectifying this issue to improve campus flow. This pioneering Machine Room-Less Modular Elevator is just the thing to give campus inaccessibility the shaft. The install will be the first modular elevator on a University Campus in North Carolina.

Resolute Elevator LLC installs high quality modular elevators manufactured in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. 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.
