Vertical Transportation

The vertical transportation system is a crucial element in the efficient operation of a building and for the experience and comfort of building occupants.  It is also a key success factor for high-rise buildings.

When creating a vertical transportation strategy, our experts take into consideration a variety of factors including client requirements, occupancy levels for different types of development, elevator cabin capacity, waiting times and ways to maximize lettable space in the building, without compromising the elevator efficiency, cost-effectiveness and energy consumption. We are also experts in escalator design and applications.

We offer services for all types of buildings including retail, commercial, residential, hotels, hospitals, transport terminals and mixed-use developments. We provide solutions for new-build projects as well as for existing buildings where we can help with equipment assessments and maintenance, and advise on improvement and modernization. We are specialists for supertall buildings that require a different set of design considerations.

We become involved with both the client and design team early in the building design process, making sure that there are no surprises later on. We remain up to date with fast-evolving elevator technology, creating innovative strategies for some of the world’s most high-profile buildings, including Lloyds of London, Harrods and Shanghai Tower.
