The quantity of passengers to be transported by a lift system is a primary consideration in lift system design. Research indicates that passenger demand in modern office buildings is significantly different to the assumptions formed many decades ago, but still applied to most modern designs. The number and type of lifts required to provide a proper and efficient lift service may need to be revised based on these findings. These changes in lift system design have economic and environmental consequences that are favorable.
