ROI Case Study: Vollsmose

With 504 windows to change in 504 apartments, enter the Gerenuk 500… two of them actually.

The previous method with traditional lifts, required 10 people and 8 months to complete.

The current method requires two Gerenuk 500s, 4 people, and took just 4 months to complete.


Here is a quick glance at how the numbers break down (US Dollars)…

Cost Factors Previous Method Current Method
Labour Cost Per Hour Per Person $38.14 $38.14
Hour Per Working Day 7.5 7.5
Cost Per Worker Per Day $286.03 $286.03
Hour Per Working Day 7.5 7.5
Total Cost In Labour Per Day [A] $2860.26 (10 workers) $1144.11 (4 workers)
Total Lift Costs Per Day [B] $1367.95 $1697.91*
Total Costs Per Day [C] = [A+B] $4228.92 $2842.02
Estimated Time Scope 8 months 4 months
Working Days In month 20 20
Total Working Days [E] 160 80
Total Cost Of Project [C] x [E] $676,514.45 $227,361.92
* – The lift costs per day for the current project are based on puchasing two Gerenuk 500s for $135,833.49 – spread out over the 80 working days of the project ($135,833.49/80 = $1697.91

So as you can see, even with the purchase of two Gerenuk 500s for the project, there was still a cost savings of almost half a million dollars – $676,514.45 (previous) – $227,361.92 (current) = $449,152.53.

And the entrepreneur on this project is going to need them too; as a result of the fast, cost-effective renovation, they were granted a new 2015 project on 600 apartments.

Imagine the return on investment WITHOUT the cost of the Gerenuk 500s to incur on their next glazing job – they stand to save even more!
