Increase the value of your building. We’ll help you select the right equipment and ensure that it’s installed and maintained to the highest standards.


Seize the opportunity presented by new legislation, ownership transitions or planned capital improvements to upgrade your elevators and escalators to today’s standards for efficiency, safety, and aesthetics.   Whatever your building type or scope of work, ECS can provide start-to-finish consulting for your modernization project.

Every ECS modernization project begins with the goal of improving your buildings performance and value – to enhance the occupant experience and maximize your return on investment.  We begin this by a thorough audit of your current equipment to determine what can be retrofitted and what must be replaced.  We then select available technology solutions based on your budget, schedule, and project objectives.
