Modernization Stage

” The Vertical Transportation Modernization – “Enhancing your investment"

As the building ages, so does the vertical transportation system. It becomes necessary to consider the modernization / replacement of the equipment. This stage is the trickiest aspect of the vertical transportation life cycle requiring the greatest degree of hands-on experience, understanding of equipment and technologies and ability to anticipate potential problems.

A compromise at any of the steps of status assessment, deriving & comparing alternative approaches, preparation, planning, execution and monitoring will leave the building crippled.

1. Establish Design Criteria

  •  Status evaluation
    • Site dimensions
    • Equipment definition and status
  •  Building survey to establish definition and characteristics
  •  Population and traffic patterns
  •   Service levels
  •   Need assessment

2. Traffic Simulations, Calculation and Alternatives

  •   Dynamic simulation of the building vertical transportation system and passenger dynamics.
  •   Software based traffic analysis
  •  Simulation and Traffic analysis report

3. Vertical Transportation Configuration

  • Quantity, capacity, speed
  • Dynamic simulation of the building vertical transportation system and passenger dynamics.
  • D Comparison to current status

4. Establishing alternatives

  • Establishing alternative approaches
  • Evaluation of available technologies
  • Cost constraints
  • Cost benefit analysis of alternatives

5. Detailed specifications and execution process

6. Supplier pre-Qualification

  •   Experience and references
  •   Service capability
  •   Personnel
  •   Process
  • Safety approach

7. Material & Source pre-Qualification

  •   Material source
  •   Vendor items
  •   Facility
  •   Quality control

8. Tender & Contract Documents

9.Tender Evaluation
