Efficient vertical transportation is central to the success of a building, and getting the right advice at the pre-planning stage is crucial to ensure that the other design team members can proceed, confident that the individual buildings have adequate space provision for effective movement of people and goods.
A building with the correct number of elevators will achieve performance requirements and British Council for Offices (BCO) classification. Floor area will also be maximised and, in turn, so will the client’s investment.
Hoare Lea Vertical Transportation supports the planning process by evaluating a building’s probable population and likely uses, along with available technology. This allows us to define the number of elevators and escalators necessary to ensure its efficient operation and enables the client’s aspirations for a comfortable, usable space to be realised.
