    Schindler Elevator Solutions Help Provide Access for All at University

    Building Type: Large University in Connecticut

    Problem: An 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.

    Solution: Schindler’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.

    Results: The fabrication and delivery of the custom panels was expedited, and Schindler completed the installation in time for the student’s arrival.
