Elevator Traffic Analysis or Traffic Study

An elevator traffic analysis or vertical transportation traffic analysis (as known as an Elevator traffic study) is a critical component that should not be overlooked when designing for new construction or an existing structure. The Elevator Consultants has found that this step is often overlooked during the construction process resulting in an under “elevatored” building resulting in poor client or tenant experience.

An elevator traffic study or vertical transportation study are typically performed to determine the anticipated elevator interval the average wait time and handling capacity that a proposed elevator schema or vertical transportation schema will yield. When an elevator traffic analysis is completed there are numerous variables that should be analyzed. To understand the traffic flow within your building whether it would be an office building, a university, retailer, mall, hospital, residential building, etc. a new building all these details must be answered in the utmost accurate manner. The Elevator Consultants proprietary methodology and algorithms encompass all the specifics for an accurate scheme for current and future needs and goals of the building.

During the 2020 Pandemic, people are returning to work in variable numbers without a steady flow. The building has to understand the capacity in which people are returning to work for elevator COVID safety. The floor capacity, number of elevators, and arrival times are few metrics that need to be analyzed to ensure that people are able to get to their destination in a safe and timely manner.  Elevator COVID safety is imperative for all.

To understand the best elevator schemas that should be used The Elevator Consultants conducts a needs analysis, gathering all the dimensions and metrics that must be answered to deliver an accurate design.
