In modern buildings, vertical transportation such as elevators and escalators as well as other types of conveyances such as moving walkways, lifts, and dumbwaiters account for a disproportionate amount of time, energy and unnecessary costs. Accordingly, many building owners, property managers, facility managers and engineers become concerned about the vertical transportation cost, performance and safety, and begin a search for an independent vertical transportation consultant or elevator consultant.
