Vertical transportation plays a key-role in the functionality and efficiency of tall buildings and complex structures, impacting heavily comfort levels, waiting times and economic feasibility given the high cost implications and space saving components related to vertical connections.
Properly designed vertical transport systems help creating attractive, successful and safe buildings, hence improving the experience and comfort of building users.
From the investors’ point of view, vertical transport studies appears even more fundamental since the efficiency and functionality of a building’s vertical transport system (elevators, escalators, etc.) can impact significantly the building’s profitability. Moreover, investors should ensure that vertical transport systems respond adequately to user demand, providing desired levels of service. Finally, vertical transport studies are also aimed at maximising the net lettable area (NLA) in high-rise buildings, without compromising the vertical transport system efficiency, while ensuring high levels of service.
Systematica is specialised in vertical transportation and has been growing fast in this domain thanks to its involvement in several complex high-rise building projects, located around the globe: Malaysia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, France, Italy and others. Elevators and escalators efficiency, and performance, waiting times, comfort conditions and other factors constitute the study’s main goal.
This outcome results from static analyses and dynamic modelling activities and take into consideration a series of variables, among which client requirements, occupancy levels of service, lobby spatial layouts, elevator capacity, and waiting times.
