Decision making

1. Getting started
  • Browse this website to find out more about our solutions for buildings without elevators and how we’ve helped our customers. 
  • Gather relevant information about regulations and permits, and any subsidies you might be entitled to claim. We can help you with any questions you may have. 
  • Take a look at what a KONE elevator could look like in your building
2. Initial approval
  • The first thing to do is to get approval from the residents’ association. Our representative can attend a residents’ meeting to explain what’s involved.
  • The residents’ association should nominate one person – for example, the building manager or the chairman of the association – who will be the responsible contact for KONE, finance providers, and so on.
  • Once the residents’ association gives initial approval, get in touch with your local KONE representative. This does not obligate you in any way.
3. Proposal
  • Our representative will visit your building to discuss the best location for the elevator, suitable materials, and financing options for the project.
  • We will then prepare one or more proposals detailing material and placement options, and costs.
4. Final approval
  • Before work can begin, the residents’ association needs to give final approval. This approval covers the placement and materials, the overall cost, as well as how the costs will be shared among the residents.
