Vertical Transportation Design

Ensure Seamless Integration

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 building's success. Elevators occupy substantial space and thus affect the building's amount of usable space. A well-designed building should have enough elevator capacity to operate efficiently to handle the smooth and seamless movement of the expected building population, People within, in and out of the building.



We have over thirty-five years’ experience in developing and delivering elevator, 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 Developers, Building Owners, Architects and Asset Managers and apply our knowledge of the latest innovations and advances in the elevator industry to help make cutting edge architecture possible.
