Preserving the integrity of the Bullecourt heritage building meant finding ways to conserve the architectural aesthetic. A roof mounted elevator engine room would have created visual noise and been a design detraction.

Incorporating the lift's engine into the elevator's guidance system is a patented innovation of Eastern Elevators, that allowed the architect to maintain the antique roof line.

The absence of a machine room installed at the top of the shaft, enabled Bullecourt to increase the number of top floor units, keep motor noise away from living areas and reduce construction costs.
