There is a well known European supermarket chain which is establishing itself very nicely around the country. The stores are much smaller than the larger chains, and often they build over a ground level carpark, which calls for challenging design solutions to allow people and heavily laden trolleys to rise from carpark to shop level.
This is done simply by ramp or elevator usually, but in Caloundra at least, the elevator is in a beaut glass shaft, which is strange because the car itself is a standard, non see-through variety.
Perhaps it's so the service technicians can see if the cables are fraying without having to dismantle anything.
