New Builds

How often do you think about the future and take the time to consider what you might need 10 or even 20 years down the line? While this might feel like a lifetime away, it’s also important to consider when you’re building your ‘Forever Home’.

What seems like a good idea now could easily become an issue down the road when your accessibility needs change.

When you incorporate an elevator into the design of your new build, you future proof yourself against all possible future scenarios. It provides the safety net that your home is working for you (not against you) no matter your age or ability.

Our entire range of residential lifts are available for new home build installations, with the Sovereign Lift and the Residential Royal Lift the most popular among homeowners and architects.

Why build a lift into your new home

Incorporating a lift into your build plans makes your ‘forever home’ more livable and accessible from the get-go. The most frequent reasons people choose to add an elevator into their build plans are because they:

    • Increase the value of the property
    • Instantly address accessibility issues, eliminating the need to retrofit ‘down the track’
    • Cost effective
    • More available lift types/designs to choose from
    • Deliver access to every floor in the dwelling
    • Offer disabled/ limited ability accessibility
    • Future proof their dwelling  as they grow older
    • Provide easier transportation of large items from floor to floor
    • Open up the market and increase interest when selling
    • Enable better access to the home for older relatives or grandparents
    • No disruption to the homeowner.
