Rotary Lift Expands Access to Its Free Facility Planning Service

Posted on September 11, 2018

Rotary Lift, a Vehicle Service Group (VSG) brand, has made its free professional facility planning assistance service, assistPro, accessible from its website.

Customers can now connect to the Rotary Lift Building Information Modeling (BIM) Library directly from Rotary’s website at rotarylift.com/Home/Support/assistPRO/.

The company says assistPro helps maximize shop efficiency and technician productivity, while avoiding costly mistakes during shop construction or renovation. Customized shop layout drawings help account for vehicle lifts as the facility is being designed.

After creating a log-in to the BIMsmith Market, customers can find all Rotary Lift BIM files, including cut sheets, spec documents, installation manuals and real images of each lift. This resource provides faster product access and the ability to compare Rotary lift specs side by side.

Customers use the resource to determine the optimal number, placement and arrangement of vehicle lifts for a new or remodeled facility. Rotary Lift’s in-house assistPRO team works with customers and their architects to create custom facility layouts.

“Failure to plan even the smallest detail prior to expanding your shop, moving into new buildings or just upgrading old equipment can result in a costly redesign or project delays,” says Larry Kendall, assistPRO technical information specialist – facility planner for Rotary Lift. “This free service allows customers to include the appropriate lifts in their shop layout from the beginning – before construction – to help avoid common shop design mistakes like not considering lighting placement, overhead clearance and door size.

After determining a facility’s intended use, the assistPRO team draws a floor layout with lifts placed for maximum productivity. Turning radii and traffic flow are matched to the types of vehicles serviced so technicians will be able to quickly pull into and out of the bays. Rotary Lift provides assistPRO layout drawings in CAD or PDF electronic formats or as color prints, based on customer preference. Turnaround is fast (usually seven to 10 days), so users can get to work on their new spaces as soon as possible.
