Grand Central Terminal Celebrates 100 Years
As one of the busiest transportation hubs, this multi-level facility is dependent upon its elevators to transport materials, employees and customers between various levels. The majority of the elevators went into service over ninety years ago and has not seen significant rehabilitation since then. Other elevators were rehabilitated approximately fifteen years ago, but were heavily utilized during the terminal’s renovation project, and required rehabilitation.
VDA provided vertical transportation consulting services for twenty-seven elevators (16 passenger and 11 freight), which required modification, rehabilitation or complete replacement. The project was completed in 2008.
