December 27, 2017 – Chicago, IL. The Elevator Consultants, a leading elevator consulting and vertical transportation consulting firm helping building owners and property managers to improve elevator efficiency and increase the bottom line, is proud to announce a short but important post to its blog on potential conflicts of interest in elevator projects. The post alerts building owners, investors and property managers to the dangers of relying on the same company to both do repairs or upgrades as well as specify project parameters.
“While most elevator service companies are upfront and honest, we still think it is important that building owners, investors and property managers to solicit a party who will represent them and act on the buildings behalf before any major repair, modernization, or new elevator or escalator project,” explained Laurie Axium, marketing manager at The Elevator Consultants. “Our blog post is food for thought for any building owners, investors and property managers to who may be confronting a potentially expensive elevator, escalator, or lift project.”

AN INDEPENDENT VOICE FOR EVERYTHING ELEVATOR OR VERTICAL TRANSPORTATION
Here is background on this release. Building owners, property managers, and investors often struggle with the vertical transportation aspects of any big project. A simple elevator repair or escalator repair can be a significant cost center on an ongoing basis, for example. An elevator modernization project or escalator modernization project, not surprisingly, can cost many times the amount of ongoing repairs, while a new building or purchase by investors of an extant building and/or a new building project can be even more complex. The facts of the matter are that a) elevators and vertical transportation can be significant cost centers in any existing building or in any new construction or elevator modernizations, and b) the same company responsible for the repairs or work should not be the company that provides an evaluation of recommended actions or costs. Smart businesspeople, in sum, look to an independent party who will work on the buildings behave and has no vested interest in an elevator company elevator. Contacting a vertical transportation expert for an objective evaluation of what should be done, the required codes and how much costs may be involved.
