Mega High Rise Elevatoring

Wednesday 30th April 1997

This paper will review and categorize the passenger elevatoring designs for the current list of world’s 10 tallest buildings. It will discuss the latest methods for elevatoring some of today’s planned mega high rise buildings and multi-use complexes, including the use of sky lobby shuttles, top up and top down locals and double deck applications. Finally, we will explore the development of new ADV3F pulse width modulation and synchronous permanent magnet motor technologies that will permit roped elevator duties of 1800kg at 15 m.p.s. single decks or 2250/2250kg at 10 m.p.s. double decks. In future, these hoist machine applications might be expanded to permit the use of triple or even quadruple deck sky lobby shuttles.
