SYNOPSIS

This course will enable participants to get a more systematical understanding of vertical transportation system (VTS) from design and install perspective. The importance of looking at VTS from holistic angle begins with an understanding of the design standards. This will be followed by an overview of the various types of VTS. The concept of Traffic Analysis will be explained as well as its relevance in particular building segments. The key considerations in planning and design will be expanded on. Next will be the challenges of VTS installation, testing and commissioning works.
Owners and operators of vertical transportation systems (VTS) commonly referred to as lift and escalators are bound by very specific duties where they assume the responsibility for the safe operation and availability of the systems. For the systems to operate safely, owners have to ensure they monitor, carry out regular and specialist maintenance, any necessary repairs and have the system inspected by a competent, impartial third-party. A contract should provide owners the peace of mind that the equipment would perform to meet the requirements of their building. Unfortunately, this is usually not the case as most of the contracts are not performance based i.e. they do not reflect the performance required of the equipment to meet the service levels in the building. The contract should equally protect both parties whilst ensuring the appropriate level of service is provided and not favoured to one party. Defining the performance levels, reliability and in-service time that the owners need is the foundation and these need to be realistic, take into account the condition of the equipment and be clearly defined as do incentives and penalties for meeting or missing them. We shall look at this topic from EN13015 perspectives.
