Vertical Transportation Design

Ensure Seamless Integration

TÜV SÜD have had the privilege of working on many of the world’s most iconic buildings, such as the Burj al Arab in Dubai and the Shard in London. We collaborate with the project architect and the design team to ensure that our designs seamlessly integrate, ensuring effective traffic flows, energy efficiency, material aesthetics and cost effectiveness.

What is vertical transportation design?

The approach taken to vertical transport is crucial to a high building's success. Elevators occupy substantial space and thus affect the building's amount of usable space. Nevertheless, the building must also have enough elevator capacity to operate properly. This refers to tall, slender buildings and mixed-use projects in particular.

Why choose TÜV SÜD for vertical transportation design?

We have over thirty-five years’ experience in developing and delivering lift, escalator and access solutions across all sectors of the built environment. Our dedicated team of engineers are experts in dealing with the challenges of vertical transportation and façade access equipment irrespective of size, scope or complexity of the project. We work directly with clients, architects and asset managers and apply our knowledge of the latest innovations and advances in the lift industry to help make cutting edge architecture possible.
