Elevator Construction

Install, repair, service, modernize, and maintain elevators.

Elevator constructors are responsible for assembling elevator cars, escalators and lifts, connect electrical wiring to control panels and test newly installed equipment to ensure safety. They also perform maintenance on these systems, which can be preventative or reactive. Since this equipment has a lot of moving parts, elevator constructors regularly oil and grease these parts. Elevator constructors work in a variety of environments – from residential, to commercial and industrial buildings.
