Thursday 26th September 2013

This paper sets out to look at lift design from a building marketing perspective and to explore how BCO 2009 has changed the understanding of letting agents, tenants and designers as to what is expected from modern lift design. The publication of BCO 2009 has fundamentally changed the way lift performance is viewed by sales and marketing organisations. The introduction of terms such as Average Waiting Time and Time to Destination are far more tangible than Handing Capacity and Interval. In addition the recognition of higher density levels and the use of simulation moves lift design to a new level which feeds through to the marketing of buildings.
