A Range of Services

Northstar Lifts offers a comprehensive range of support services for architects and builders. We can assist in specifying properly selected components and equipment, detailing building materials for shaft ways, dimensions, power requirements, and code compliance for installation and machine rooms.

Many drawings are available for vertical and inclined platform lifts, LU/LA elevator shaft ways and machine rooms, and for residential applications. We can provide CAD drawings for incorporation to your plans.

Specification Tools

We are happy to assist with writing specifications for any of the equipment that we offer. Call us today and we will write the appropriate spec for the school, office, church, or other commercial building you are designing. Division 14 specification tools are also available on our manufacturers’ sites (see links below).

Questions on which type of equipment is most appropriate? We understand that each building, customer, and accessibility need is unique. We are familiar with New York State codes for both existing and new construction. Call us today to discuss your project, and let us help design a lift or elevator that meets the needs of your client and those who will use the building.


Northstar offers links to on-line, AIA approved presentations (one CEU/ LU) that provide detailed information on vertical and inclined wheelchair lifts, Limited Use/Limited Application elevators, and residential elevators. Each course includes Code information, suitability guidelines, and information on specifications.

Lunch & Learn

We will bring this one hour program to your office or chapter meeting, and we supply lunch! This program is available to Architects, Construction Professionals including estimators, designers, and Production Supervisors. Call us today for details, or to set up a Lunch and Learn seminar.
