Four easy steps to an upgraded elevator


1. Fact-finding

  • We'll conduct a detailed site survey to learn more about what upgrades would be best for your elevator and building.
  • As part of this process, we'll talk to key stakeholders to learn what they want to get out of the project.

2. Recommendation and estimate

  • You'll get a clear recommendation about what to upgrade based on your needs and our expert opinion.
  • We'll provide a detailed schedule and cost breakdown, so you know what to budget for and how long the project will take.
Select your KONE service level from the wide range of repair packages and maintenance options.

3. Execution

  • Once the project is underway, a KONE project manager will be responsible for quality checks and supervision throughout the process.
  • We'll keep everyone fully informed about the schedule and progress of the work. We can even provide KONE InfoMod information boards for building lobbies to keep tenants informed of the progress.
KONE maintenance supports your elevators.

4. Ongoing maintenance and care

  • We can create a tailored KONE Care™ maintenance plan for your equipment to keep it running safely and smoothly.
  • With KONE 24/7 Connected Services, we can monitor your equipment around the clock and take proactive action to prevent potential problems from causing a breakdown.
