Elevator World’s 24th Annual Project of the Year

Sponsored

In this issue, EW is pleased to present the 2022 Project of the Year contest winners. Submissions were plentiful and impressive, and judging was difficult. Companies from OEMs to smaller independents shared stories and photos from locations including: in North America, Florida, Georgia, New York and Ontario, Canada; in Asia, China, South Korea and Taiwan; in Europe, France and Spain; and in the Middle East, Kuwait and the U.A.E. There were also entries from Athens, Greece, and South Africa. Winning entries overcame often considerable challenges and, in some cases, broke global and company records. The systems honored here are a testament to the hard work and talent of the vertical-transportation professionals who delivered systems that are robust, attractive and safe, providing access and mobility in some of the most interesting, populated and important places on earth. Mobility and accessibility are not all the systems offer: Many provide one-of-a-kind experiences or solve very specific problems. NYC, one of the world’s top elevator cities, alone yielded three winners, revealing systems that both enrich life and make it easier. Challenges overcome included creating and delivering systems that are complex, technically difficult and, in some cases, installed in conditions that were either heavily populated, restrictive or in a harsh geographical environment. Sometimes, a project started one way and ended up another, as team members strove to meet customers’ very-specific demands. Often, the depth of challenges faced and addressed pushed winners ahead of the pack — sometimes by thin margins. Winners have been presented with trophies to honor their outstanding work.

The EW staff and judges appreciate the many entrants and their participation. We hope readers will enjoy some of our industry’s most significant accomplishments from the past year. Start thinking now of any noteworthy projects your company is working on that may be eligible for next year’s competition. The project should be composed of a vertical, horizontal or inclined transportation system with an innovative design, special application or approach that solved major problems and overcame challenges. Complete contest entry details are available at elevatorworld.com/poy. The submission deadline is September 30, 2022. The transportation-system portion of the project must have been completed within two years of the opening of the contest (April 2020 or later).
