Project Eiffel Tower

Plenty of maintenance is required so that the material withstands all the use and activity that the Eiffel Tower has on a daily basis. But it's not just the structure itself that needs attention - the lifts that support all the Tower's business activity also need regular maintenance. The renovation of the elevators began in 2008 and has continued over the years.

The tower has six elevators, four from the ground to the second floor and two from the second floor to the top. The elevators began their work in 1889 and in 1899 were renovated. In 1910, the north and south elevators were installed.

Renovation works will include replacing the entire transport vehicle, counterweight, trolley, counterweight support structure, springs, electrical transformers and other electrical and control parts. There will also be a reinforcement of the counterweight travel path. To carry out all these works, some auxiliary structures and platforms must be created and put in place so that it is possible to work at full height up to the second floor of the tower. This work must comply with all new lift market regulations and all necessary safety measures.

Slefty is supporting the structural design of all auxiliary work platforms that lift the equipment to the top. These auxiliary structures also need to be non-invasively bonded to the tower in order to prevent any damage and avoid structural problems with the tower's historical elements.
