Engineering and Design Development of a vertical transportation system design requires the analysis of many factors including, but not limited to, building usage, occupancy, size, etc. After consulting with the Owner’s representative and Architect to determine the design criteria, CBA Consultants will review and analyze anticipated traffic patterns to determine the configuration, speed, capacity and number of elevators and/or escalators required to handle the population of the building. If required, alternative schemes will be presented for discussion. Drawings or sketches will be provided to establish space requirements for the installation of the vertical transportation systems. CBA Consultants will provide electrical, mechanical and structural requirements for the vertical transportation systems. CBA Consultants will review architects drawings to coordinate the core areas for the vertical transportation systems.
Once a design has been approved, CBA Consultants will prepare construction specifications and drawings as required, to obtain competitive bids from contractors. The documents will include and adhere to all applicable codes and ADA requirements. Every vertical transportation component is specified, including acceptable manufacturers, to eliminate extra billing and additional costs throughout the project. Construction schedules are included in the documents along with any special requirements such as adhering to the Owner’s security procedures, typical working hours, staging requirements (equipment storage), etc.
