CIRCULAR PANORAMIC ELEVATOR FOR SHERATON OMAN
Sheraton Oman is an Iconic Landmark Building in Muscat which was renovated in 2016. It is the tallest building in the Sultanate of Oman. The subject Elevator has been installed in the Ball Room area of the Hotel.
Challenge: Installing an elevator in an existing structure without any provision was the challenge. There was no pit and no hoistway. The bottom slab was not designed for the impact load of the buffer. The elevator needed to be highly customized to match the aesthetic ambiance of the proposed area. It must be Circular in shape. All other elevator companies in Oman failed to propose the correct solution.
Solution: We worked hard with the project management team to understand the complicated design requirements. These complicated requirements were then discussed with the highly professional Engineering team of KLEEMANN Elevators, Europe to find the optimum solution. Various options were developed and the design was prototyped in order to reach the final solution. The process took almost 6 months to finalize the design.
Project status: The elevator and its structure including circular glass was installed and commissioned in May 2017. It is now standing proud as a momento of our Technical Excellence.
