Amramp Installs 174-Foot Ramp at Boston’s Historic Faneuil Hall Rotunda

Posted on Fri, Mar 15, 2013

Faneuil Hall Chooses Amramp for Full Accessibility During Elevator Upgrades

Can anyone provide a temporary ramp for wheelchair access to the second level of the mall?

It was a big job, but Amramp of Boston was more than up to the task.

The Commerce Center Mall at Faneuil Hall is currently undergoing elevator changes that will eliminate essential wheelchair access to the second-level shops. Management contacted Amramp for a solution that would comply with codes and not impact the historic space in any way.

The Commerce Center Mall is one of Boston's premier shopping, dining, and tourism hotspots, as well as a major historic landmark attracting 100,000 visitors daily.

In less than 48 hours after authorization to proceed, Amramp began producing engineering and City of Boston building permits. Work began over the weekend and by working 12 hours each day, the ramp was completed exactly on time. The City of Boston Building Department approved the stamped engineering plans and issued a work permit. By Monday, the Amramp team had already started installing the 174-foot ramp, spanning 14'8" in elevation.

The ramp is crucial, not just for complying with the Americans With Disabilities Act, but without a ramp to the second floor, all of the shops would have closed for at least a month. Faneuil Hall attracts 100,000 visitors daily, rain or shine: Closed shops incur significant damage to shops’ sales – and lost revenue for one of Boston’s premier landmarks.

The installation team worked 12-hour days to get the job completed. The installation started Monday, finishing up at 2 PM on Friday. Chief installer Brad Blakeman worked with two crew chiefs on the job, Jason Bradley and Drew Gibson, along with fellow installers' helpers Derek Bartulio, Tyrone Dickerson, and Tony McGill. The overall project manager was Steve Turner, while Conor Sweeney and Fran Barry handled the staging of materials, pre-assembly, planning, and engineering, and Jon Gordon served as the sales contact.

"I am so very proud to be associated with this team of dedicated people," says Amramp President and Founder Julian Gordon. "Faneuil Hall is a perfect example of how historic buildings can remain functional for everyone all of mobility levels, especially when mechanical features like an elevator are not working. An Amramp wheelchair ramp works rain or shine, and especially well in snow, with a steel-mesh platform that disperses precipitation.”

Faneuil Hall is named after wealthy Boston merchant Peter Faneuil, who built the structure in 1742 as a gift to the city. Faneuil Hall, also known as Quincy Market, is home to more than 100 upscale shops, restaurants, and specialty pushcarts, but it's also the spot where the original signers of the Declaration of Independence gathered from nearby Colonies before they started the big journey to Philadelphia in 1776. It has served as a gathering place for many famous historical figures over the centuries.

The ramp was built entirely from in-stock, standard Amramp materials, reflecting the huge range and capabilities of Amramp's unique modular system, but also highlighting the skills and engineering expertise of Amramp’s expert installers.

Winter Slips and Falls, Ski Injuries: Amramp Can Help

Posted on Thu, Jan 03, 2013

Weather-Related Winter Injuries & Mobility Solutions From Amramp

Winter in North America usually brings with it cold, snow, and ice (in some areas), and these slippery conditions never fail to cause all sorts of weather-related accidents and injuries, usually related to slipping and falling, pulling something while shoveling snow, or, commonly, mishaps that happen on the ski slopes. Also, despite recent unseasonably warm winters in many areas, ski season is upon us, which brings additional sports-related injuries.

What are your options if you or someone you love becomes physically incapacitated or mobility-challenged? Or what happens if you have older relatives in wheelchairs coming to stay for the holidays (or longer) and you want to make your living spaces and/or gatherings comfortable and fully accessible to them?

Fortunately, Amramp offers a variety of both short- and long-term solutions, with franchise locations all across the US and Canada. And Amramp is more than just North America’s leading wheelchair ramp company; Amramp also offer a wide range of top-of-the-line accessibility solution products like stair lifts, vertical platform lifts, portable showers, pool lifts (great for warmer areas or indoor pools!), threshold ramps, portable ramps, grab bars, alert devices, and more.

An unexpected accident, injury, or change in a person's health/mobility level can be a very difficult and confusing experience for both the individual and her caregivers. Adapting to new physical and structural challenges can be intimidating; even if it's only a short-term situation.

Amramp makes this transition much easier and more comfortable, and our caring, friendly, knowledgeable experts are available to install ramps and other products quickly and easily. Our products are RENTABLE, adaptable, portable, and able to be deconstructed and reassembled.

If you or a loved one find yourself in a situation this winter where mobility becomes an issue, don’t despair; Amramp’s mission is to provide you with solutions for navigating your environment in a new way.
