Objective: "Delivering safe, healthy and sustainable built environment buildings that perform" comprehensively captures the essence of a highly efficient building. This paper showcases, from a vertical transportation point of view, one of the most prominent projects in India – ‘Central Vista’ – located in the heart of the national capital, which is a modern centre of national governance. Methodology: In any VIP building, the horizontal and vertical transportation environment becomes increasingly more important and needs to be designed in the most efficient and effective way to ensure the right balance. Main results: In this context, the paper addresses opportunities to apply new state of art technologies within a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural environment to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the building. The planning is done with scope for future expansion, exploring the new built typologies. Conclusions: This paper finally provides a comprehensive outlook on presenting an in-depth analysis of state-of-the-art methodologies deployed for safe and smooth vertical transportation in terms of passenger comfort, code compliant, energy-efficient products, sustainable maintenance procedures, IoT deployment to maximise the built potential and yet be modern and Iconic.
