In the new Auckland City Hospital, expansive glazing, landscaping and colour provide natural light and a visual connection to the outdoors



To enable staff, patients and visitors to move quickly and efficiently around the ten levels of the Auckland City Hospital there are 17 elevators and one escalator.

Otis Elevator Company supplied and installed this vertical transportation system to meet the hospital's stringent criteria, says Derek Bryson, the company's northern regional manager.

"An important consideration was the high volume of traffic the elevators were required to handle. To identify the best solution, we liaised closely with our international engineering operations team."

Special features were incorporated into the Otis Elevonic Elevator system to achieve the objectives. Remote elevator monitoring enables elevators to be operated individually, with greater control over their usage. E-service, a customer on-line service, means each elevator's performance can be monitored and maintenance needs clearly identified. All the elevators are hard-wearing and durable, with many designed to carry beds and larger loads.
