Vertical Transportation

Greenbusch provides planning, design, administration, and commissioning services related to vertical transportation for elevators, escalators, materials lifts and ADA lifts. We work as members of architectural/engineering design teams; for contractors in the design/build process and directly for owners on new, existing and historic buildings.

  • Planning Services include traffic analysis, capacity studies, programming, scope development, preliminary cost modeling, systems interdependency review, and scheduling.
  • Operational Services include existing condition assessment, survey assessment of performance issues including life-cycle cost analysis, replacement cost studies, developing maintenance and performance benchmarks and energy reduction strategies.
  • Vertical Transportation Design includes code review and space planning as well as interdisciplinary review to ensure interface coordination between vertical transportation and other disciplines; and preparing complete contract documentation of vertical transportation systems including drawings and specifications which allow for competitive bidding.
  • Construction Administration bid assistance and representation during construction by a design professional to ensure the quality and intent of the design are preserved during construction. Services include representation during construction meetings as well as site inspections to review in-progress and completed work.
