Since the beginning of our family-owned company’s foundation we have hired and trained the most experienced field operators, designers and craftsmen. Our process is one that requires extreme attention to detail and meticulous fabricating techniques using state of the art precision tooling, equipment and technology. Collaborating with architects, consultants, elevator companies, general contractors, property managers and building owners, Draper can transform early concepts into spectacularly executed realities. Be it new construction or the modification of an existing bank of elevators, our products are comprised of the finest, most innovative, high quality materials available. When combined with our expertise and abilities, the result is an end product that delivers a lasting first impression, whether it’s a high-rise, Class ‘A’ building with 20+ elevators or a property with only one car that serves as both a passenger and freight; the specifications may be different but the expectation remains the same.

An Inside Look at the 20 Front of House Elevator Cabs at Encore Boston Harbor: Fabricated by Draper Elevator Interiors
The moment you step foot onto the 3 million square foot, five-star resort and casino your eyes will be busy gazing at all of the intricate details that make up the casino’s astonishing build out. Complex vertical transportation greets you at the front door with a set of extremely rare curved escalators. The tower passenger elevators have similar shapes and curvatures. These elevator cab interiors feature spherical corners at all four sides of the canopies and custom thermoformed solid surface molding panel frames that have integrated LED perimeter lighting. To pull off this design and meet all code and weight requirements it took great collaboration. Draper partnered with Otis Elevator, Jacobs Architects, Suffolk Construction, Lerch Bates Consultants and the Wynn Design & Development team to deliver 20 elegant front of house elevator cabs. The process was over two years in the making and included two mock-up review meetings where all parties involved visited Draper’s manufacturing facility in Holbrook, MA to review fully fabricated cab enclosures and interiors. Draper Elevator Interior’s General Manager Doug Hefler was instrumental in bringing this project to life, from finding new and innovative ways to reduce material weights without sacrificing the architectural design, to working on-site to help guide the installation of over 10 install teams. This five-star resort has five-star elevators that are unlike most cabs you will ever ride in.
