Services Provided: Site plan and review, code review, programming, schematic design, interiors, special construction, construction documents, project costs and construction administration, and observation.
The Challenge: Existing elevators are often outdated from a code, equipment age and interior finishes. A need for modernized equipment and controls while maintaining service and upgrading fire protection.
The Solution: Intensive surveys are conducted of existing equipment, cab size and elevator room conditions. Including power, ventilation, and cooling. Elevator lobbies are also reviewed. Fire protection is coordinated which involves car inspection of existing shaft for life safety compliance. A staging and phasing plan to satisfy operation requirements is created and reviewed. Contract documents are then created for bid which include new cab and lobby finishes. Construction administration involves shaft review and periodic equipment installation observations.
