With a building of any size, maintaining traffic flow is essential. You don’t want crowds forming in public spaces and blocking access or egress for anyone. This will have a ripple effect and negatively impact businesses and operations throughout the premises. The key to keeping foot traffic moving is to maintain well-operating systems, such as escalators, to accentuate pedestrian movement.
Escalator consulting is one of our roles at MHI-Consulting. We’ll use this post to show you how you can understand efficient design with the aid of a consultant’s report. The first reporting step is analyzing traffic patterns. This provides data that can determine the best plan, placement, and usage of escalators and elevators.
You will learn from this vital piece of escalator consulting whether you need to upgrade your escalators' design to meet traffic demands. Does your building need to install additional units? Do your maintenance plans need to be upgraded to keep pace with the number of passengers? These are questions that will be answered when consultants look at your equipment and the design.
A thorough escalator consulting company will assess all of the equipment and determine if any is obsolete or worn out. The report will detail how the design and function can be improved with newer, more efficient components. You will get a complete understanding of your vertical transportation equipment and how well the design suits your property.
