Generally, a consultant is someone who is hired to fix or improve a component of their client’s business. The Elevator Consultants are brought in to ensure that the elevator equipment in a client’s building is functioning properly and according to the contract. In addition to assessing basic functionality, The Elevator Consultant deals with the elevator companies to determine whether or not they are meeting the terms of their contracts and servicing each elevator appropriately as required by each building. The Elevator Consultants have specific expertise in the areas of elevator maintenance, analysis, modernization, repairs, new installations, insurance reviews, safety specifications, elevator code, as well as state and federal regulations.
The Elevator Consultants offer cost-effective ways of stabilizing the overall performance of vertical transportation equipment by seeking out measures of preventative maintenance.
