Dallas Escalator System Installation

Dallas, TX – MEI worked with building engineers, general contractors and Otis Elevator company for the installation of an escalator system into the Victory Park Building in Downtown Dallas.

After approval of the MEI lift plan to move the escalator into the building, MEI prepared for 3 weeks prior to installation for the project setup. Gantry beams supported by the floor above were installed, along with trolleys and hoists. After being flown into the side of the building with two cranes, the system was used to lower the escalators into place for the floor below.

Equipment Used:

  • One 250-ton and one 90-ton crane;
  • Pneumatic trolleys with 20-ton air hosts

It was a long process from beginning to end but was completed safely and on schedule.
