When the owners of the historical and elegant Wentworth Inn in Jackson, NH decided to upgrade their more than century old main inn building with its newest amenity, an elevator, they called Bergeron Technical Services. This elevator design and installation was a lofty goal from the beginning. The elevator itself features a glass wall at its south side, so passengers can get a bird’s eye view the beautiful New England Village of Jackson, NH as they ride towards their destination. Additionally, the elevator had to be located in the building’s South Tower. The original tower was removed and a masonry elevator shaft was installed in the original tower footprint, then the exterior of the tower was rebuilt, to a slightly larger footprint to accommodate the elevator, and made to resemble the original as closely as possible, while still maintaining functionality of the elevator and fire safety requirements. Even the turret roof was rebuilt. Additional interior renovations were made to relocate the existing exit stairways to maintain code compliance. Additional specialty fire safety features were designed and installed to make this unique project safe and sound for all the occupants of the Wentworth Inn. Bergeron Technical Services provided all building and elevator shaft design services, permitting services through the Town of Jackson Building and Fire Departments and the State of NH Office of the Fire Marshal, and worked closely with Stanley Elevator Company on the design and installation of the elevator.
