The efficient design and accurate specification of elevators and escalators, forming a vertical transportation system, is vital to the success of a project.
Foreman Roberts’ Vertical Transportation Team provide consulting & advisory services direct to clients and support multi-disciplinary teams for larger projects in the UK and Overseas. Our highly experienced VT team provides specialist technical and contractual expertise to develop designs and specifications from feasibility study through to tender issue. Our team offers flexible, innovative solutions to vertical transportation requirements; we utilise the latest software to calculate the required number and desired performance of elevators, ensuring that the efficiency of people flow is not compromised whilst maximising the all important nett to gross lettable ratio.
Sustainability is to the forefront of all Foreman Roberts’ projects, and vertical transportation is no exception. We measure and evaluate the efficiency of manufacturer’s drives and control systems prior to specification and our comparison studies permit benchmarking of the manufacturer’s systems. Life cycle and disposal costs are an important consideration for any aspect of building services design; Foreman Roberts’ identify life cycle costs as part of the tender evaluation process, including the estimation of end-of-life removal and replacement costs. Additionally, our team considers the effect upon the environment of disposal, ensuring that excellent design enables the minimal use of oil lubricants whilst maintaining high standards of reliability. Electronic delivery systems and effective communication between the Vertical Transportation Team and project teams encourages harmonious, integrated team working which we consider is essential to ensuring high quality installations, delivered on time and within budget.
Our Vertical Transportation Team are available to meet with you at any time to discuss your existing projects and future requirements.
