  • Project: Dick's Last Resort
  • Location: Mall of America, Minneapolis, MN
  • Summary: These restaurant owners wanted to make sure the appearance of the wheelchair lift fit the theme of their establishment. They emphasize comedy, youthful energy and fun parties. The decor is whimsical, so they opted to build a shaftway with an outer facade designed to resemble an old shack. This lift is installed without a pit. The platform therefore sits 3" above grade at the lowest landing. A fixed ramp is used to facilitate entry. The interior of the shaftway is smooth, as required by safety codes.
