The Use of Multi Car / Single Well Lift Systems To Add Value

Adam J Scott

Thursday 29th September 2011

The goal of any passenger lift system design for modern buildings is to meet the required performance criteria whilst occupying the minimum amount of valuable floor space. Nowhere is this goal more relevant than in the development of major speculative office buildings where every additional square metre of space that can be made available as lettable area is a constant focus of any competent design team. This paper focuses on the added value a multi car / single well lift system brought to the development of The St Botolph Building, a large speculative office development in the City of London that was completed in 2010.
