Complete your building faster with our SkyBuild elevator
Years of high-rise experience and innovative engineering come together in our high-speed, self-climbing construction elevator.
The SkyBuild construction elevator grows with your building, giving crews access to the highest completed floor. Once construction is complete, it goes straight into service as a SkyRise® elevator.
Boost productivity with a safe, reliable, fast construction process
Allow crews to spend less time waiting and more time on the job
Gain 30 to 60 minutes of additional productive time every day
Move crews safely and quickly; say goodbye to slow external elevators
Execute climbs quickly during off-hours, limiting disruptions to your schedule
We can jump every floor, and we can jump anytime
An angled deck protects crews from overhead hazards.
Used by Otis crews to install additional elevator rails, allowing the SkyBuild system to climb as construction progresses.
Central to the system’s unique design, the platforms support the SkyMotion® machine, controller, drive and travelling cable – components that become part of the permanent SkyRise elevator.
The heart of the SkyRise system, the hydraulic piston moves the whole assembly upward in single-floor jumps.
The SkyBuild system is held in place by support beams that are retracted during the climbing operation.
The construction elevator serves all floors below the SkyBuild assembly. Once construction is complete, it converts into the permanent SkyRise cab.
Maximum standard duty
