As a top elevator consulting firm, in short, we can assist with the design and new construction issues on all types of vertical transportation (traction elevators, hydraulic elevators, escalators, lifts, etc. Understanding the goals of the building for their tenants or usage will impact the vertical transportation needs. It is imperative in the early steps and should be followed throughout the period of construction until building completion. The Elevator Consultants are up to date with all the elevator, escalator and moving walkway innovations with respect to technology, design, green initiatives, and regulations allowing for a smoothly run project. In this way, we are a powerful asset to your engineering and architecture (A/E) design teams for your buildings; we can help with all aspects of elevator installation following all vertical transportation code requirements and industry best practices.
A Detailed Design Analysis of Elevator Needs and Systems
The Elevator Consultants’ Design and New Construction Process begins with a detailed needs analysis which will help to decide what equipment will be most appropriate for the building – according to the requests of the developer, architect and/or owner. This analysis includes a comprehensive feasibility study and traffic analysis. It also includes an evaluation of the proposed equipment and building conditions. The creation of mechanical, structural and electrical loads is taken into consideration and the best equipment to suit the building is specified. A solid and clear bid process works together with the required bid documentation in order to deliver the initial stage to selecting a contractor. A comprehensive bid breakdown is compiled, complete with recommendations and additional analytic information to help determine the best bid. The project is then overseen and managed from start to finish so that the elevator work is completed in a turn-key fashion.

Elevators are a major energy and cost center in any modern building. Accordingly, the smart developers are bringing in elevator consultants early in the design phases – whether for new construction or for the revitalization of an existing building – to make sure that the project has the expertise of a vertical transportation expert.
