Dublin, July 20, 2018 — Otis Ireland has won an order from developer Sorohan Builders Ltd to equip the high end apartment development, Trimbleston, in Dublin, with a suite of Gen2® Life elevators. Otis, the world’s leading manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products, including elevators, escalators and moving walkways, is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Sorohan Builders has secured five Gen2® Life units from Otis Ireland for the third phase of the project. Trimbleston comprises 4/5 storey buildings, duplex units in 3 storey buildings and 2/3 storey detached, semi-detached and townhouses.
Travelling at a speed of 1 metre/second, the elevators have a maximum capacity of eight people and the Gen2® Life system's compact lift components fit inside the hoistway and eliminate the need for a machine room. This saves construction costs and frees up valuable floor space for design.
As one of the most prestigious residential developments under construction in the Dublin area, the apartments will all have private balconies or terrace/patio areas. The homes are designed in such a way with large expanses of glazing to avail of natural sun and daylight.
“Otis Ireland is delighted to work with Sorohan Builders again on this high end development with our elevators which will be completed in September,” said Hemant Jolly, Vice President and Managing Director of Otis UK & Ireland. “We have installed the elevators in all prior phases and will also provide maintenance services where we work with facility managers to deliver a personalised and proactive customer experience.”
