The classics of tomorrow.

Design systems

Cultivated craftsmanship tradition Swiss made. For new or existing we design our exclusive elevators in maximum coordination with the desired with the desired building style, architecture and the customer's designcustomer. Often, the requirements of the protection of historical monuments must also be met. There are virtually no limits to the equipment required. Shaft scaffolds as glass structures in various metal variants, elevator elements clad with wood or leather or leather, exquisite fabrics on the walls and individual lighting elements.

Glass elevators

Glass has a generous effect and is excellently suited for givinga lift system by means of brightness and transparency. And transparency to lend a lift installation a special, representative ambience. At places where a fixed shaft enclosure looks like a foreign building. At places where a fixed shaft enclosure looks like a foreign body or artificially divides the the room artificially, a glass solution helps to keep the openness of the the space without violating its openness. Glass takes into account architectural elements worthy of protection and allows them to be and allows them to be optimally expressed. For maximum transparency, glass can also take on static functions. This ensures greater safety in shopping malls, train stations, and commercial and administrative buildings.

Wooden elevators (Lifts in and with wood)

Wood in a static function is a demanding material from a lift demanding material. In contrast to steel and concrete, wood is an anisotropic material, i.e. its elasticity is elasticity depends on the direction and location and is many times many times higher than that of steel and concrete. In addition, wood swells and shrinks in response to changes in humidity. We have solutions for problem-free fastening even in wooden constructions.

 

Lift cabins with wooden linings create atmosphere and warmth. Veneered cladding of the wall, ceiling and also the doors are possible. And we also build the cabin panel in wood with wooden with wooden call buttons completely in wood.

«From the Amthaus Bern to the Swisscom Businesspark in Ittigen - two generations of glass elevators: In 1980 our office our office developed with EMCH for the Amthaus Bern, at the striking structural interface between the old and the new between the old and the new building, the prototype of the very first the very first glass lift in Switzerland. The glass lift set a significant signal for the vertical connection in the facility and and made it easier for visitors to find their way around the building. orientation in the building. This in all its facets with the EMCH company in all its facets 32 years - a whole generation - later with Bernhard Emch for the glass with Bernhard Emch at the glass lifts in the Swisscom Businesspark Ittigen. Here, too, it was a matter of the vertical connection in the central atrium of the the central atrium of the building and to make the and to turn the ride in the elevator into a small experience. experience. This renewed collaboration has resulted in a great architectural and aesthetical result, perfected to the to the last detail. We are looking forward to further collaboration, perhaps one day with the next generation.» Peter Breil, Atelier 5 Architekten und Planer AG, Bern
«Bei EMCH hat man ein offenes Ohr für die Anliegen der Architekten. Hat das vielleicht damit zu tun, dass sich in der Emch-Crew Leute befinden, die selbst Architekten sind? Sie verstehen, dass gerade bei Umbauten und denkmalgeschützten Häusern die Schachtgeometrien häufig zwingend vorgegeben und fast immer äusserst knapp sind. Und trotzdem ist es EMCH noch immer gelungen, mit gescheiten Ideen ein Optimum herauszuholen und ganz nebenbei auch noch schöne Lifte zu bauen. Das Wort "unmöglich" habe ich in diesem Zusammenhang nie gehört.» Elisabeth Boesch, Martin & Elisabeth Boesch Architekten ETH SIA BSA, Zürich
«Der hängende, vollverglaste Lift in der Alkoholverwaltung Bern, ausschliesslich auf Zug beansprucht, stellte 1995 die aussergewöhnliche Innovationskraft der Ingenieure von EMCH unter Beweis. Technische und handwerkliche Meisterschaft verbinden sich zu einer zeitlosen ästhetischen Kraft. Als es darum ging, eine Verbindung zwischen der Kirchenfeldbrücke und dem Schwellenmätteli zu skizzieren, erfand das unter Architekten hochgeschätzte Berner Unternehmen einen – leider nicht ausgeführten – Bogenlift, der den halbkreisförmigen Bögen der Brücke folgte. Futuristisch und atemberaubend, der Zeit weit voraus.» Rolf Mühlethaler, Architekt BSA SIA, Bern
«Mich fasziniert die Arbeitsweise der Firma EMCH. Schon während der ersten Sitzungen machen sich die Beteiligten das Projekt zu eigen und setzen alles daran, die Vorstellungen und Ideen des Gegenübers zu verwirklichen. Bei EMCH gibt es kein No-Go; immer steht die gemeinsame Suche nach der besten Lösung im Vordergrund. Daran hat sich während meines Berufslebens nichts geändert – seit gut 25 Jahren profitiere ich in der Zusammenarbeit mit EMCH von der Begeisterung, der Professionalität und den reibungslosen Abläufen.» Martin Gsteiger, dipl. Archtekt HTL SIA,3B Architekten AG, Bern
«EMCH passt zu mir. Die Fachleute sind wie ich daran interessiert, für jedes Projekteine spezifische, originäre Lösung zu entwickeln und nicht einfachheitshalber frühere Ausfertigungen zu kopieren. Für EMCH und mich gibt es jeden Lift nur ein einziges Mal. Diese Offenheit gegenüber Neuem, diese Freude an Innovationen und diese Bereitschaft, Versuche zu wagen, überzeugen mich. Gemeinsam gelingen Produkte, die den technischen Anforderungen eines Baus genügen und mit meiner Architektursprache harmonieren.» Tilla Theus, Architektin ETH/SIA/BSA, Zürich
«Als innovativer Architekt bin ich auf kompetente Spezialisten angewiesen.Die Zusammenarbeit mit EMCH ist immer hervorragend. Neue, unkonventionelleIdeen werden aufgenommen und mit grossem Fachwissen konstruktiv weiterentwickelt und umgesetzt.Sowohl in der Projektierung als auch in der Realisierung ist EMCH für mich einwichtiger Projektpartner.» Andreas Ramseier, Ramseier & Associates Ltd., Zürich
«Das Besondere ist bei uns alltäglich, denn wir haben uns auf Liftanlagen mit aussergewöhnlichen Anforderungen spezialisiert.»
Einen Lift zu montieren, ist wie ein anspruchsvolles Puzzle. Einmal, in Oetwil am See bei Zürich, war mein Auftrag, einen runden Glaslift einzubauen. Ich bekam eine Kiste mit Material. Der Bauleiter fragte mich, was das sei. «Das isch dr Lift.» Der glaubte das nicht, aber ich begann, das Ganze Schritt für Schritt zusammenzubauen. Er staunte. Fritz Wittwer (seit 1989 Monteur)
