ABSTRACT
The article describes the challenges of constructing a 290-foot-long stainless-steel, three-stop commercial inclined elevator project for the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) on Barro Colorado Island in the middle of the Panama Canal. The new elevator installed was the Hill Hiker Commercial Inclined Elevator after contractors determined that it was the most efficient and cost-effective approach. The lift uses wireless technology to eliminate the need for a traveling cable.
